Mauricio Pochettino is rumoured to be parting ways with Paris Saint-Germain this week with Christophe Galiter poised to takeover at Parc Des Princes.
But whoever takes over from the Argentinian is odds-on to win the Ligue 1 title with the star-studded side containing the likes of Neymar, Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe.

Not even a league title could keep Pochettino from getting the sack, bookies are already offering odds that the next PSG boss meets the same fate.
Paddy Power makes Nice manager Christophe Galtier the 4/11 favourite to succeed Pochettino, but he’s odds on to be shown the door after winning Ligue 1, just like the former Spurs boss.
But despite taking on a job with the world’s hardest to please fanbase, the incoming manager is still expected to outlast PSG’s new ‘supreme leader’ Kylian Mbappé, who’s 5/6 to leave the Parc des Princes first.
Others in the running to be selected for the job by their own centre forward include Zinedine Zidane (5/2) and Massimiliano Allegri (16/1).
The Paris club is priced as fourth favourites to bring home their first Champions League trophy in 2023 (6/1), behind Manchester City (10/3), Liverpool (5/1) and Bayern Munich (11/2).
But after failing on the European stage, Pochettino could be set for a dramatic return to England – rated 7/2 to manage any Premier League team next season, including an 8/1 price to head to Old Trafford… if he’s not already fed up of underachieving European giants.
PSG Specials and odds
- 10/11 Next PSG Manager to win the French league and get sacked at the end of the 2022/23 season
- 5/6 Mbappe to leave the club before the next manager does
- 5/2 The next PSG manager to see the end of his contract
- 6/1 PSG to win the Champions League in 2023
A Paddy Power spokesperson said: “You have to feel bad for Poch. After years of being mocked for failing to win any silverware with Spurs, he’s finally won a league title – but it looks as though he’s set to lose his job anyway.
“With serial Champions League winner Zidane amongst the early favourites to replace him, the Frenchman would be a great fit to give PSG fans what they’re missing, and he should come in and shake things up right away. After all, he does have a reputation for tackling things ‘head on’.”
