Manchester United have been linked with a move to get PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino.

It has been thought that it would be difficult for the club to sign the current Paris Saint-Germain boss, but PSG’s Champions League round of 16 exit may have just changed things.

PSG wants to win the Champions League, and Pochettino was appointed for that reason, and the likelihood of Pochettino facing the sack has been all over the media.

PSG sporting director Leonardo, has however revealed that Pochettino will not be sacked, at least until the end of the season.

Leonardo said: “We have to look to improve this team and maintain morale to play in Ligue 1 and to finish the season well. We should stay together.

“Pochettino is still part of the project for this season. It’s not the time to think about that.”

Speaking about the nature of the defeat, Leonardo said: It’s a tough one to take. We can’t bury everything that was done. It’s hard to analyse.

“The incident of the foul on Donnarumma was crucial, but we struggled to manage that moment. We lost control. We need to look for solutions. But it’s a shame that a referee’s decision can be so influential in that sort of moment.

“But we should stay calm. We made errors, we should change things but we shouldn’t look back on everything. It’s difficult but, up until half time we were a well-organised team.”
