The Emir of Qatar wanted Mauricio Pochettino after Doha meeting

Le Parisien report that it was the Emir of Qatar who personally desired the hiring of Mauricio Pochettino as the club’s new manager, after the ex-Tottenham boss left a good impression on the PSG owner during an autumn meeting in Doha.

During a meeting that had been scheduled for several months, Pochettino was able to lay out his footballing vision and about what he wanted from a team with conviction, in a meeting that led to the Emir being convinced that “Poch” was the right man for the job.

Pochettino is a former PSG player, having worn the club’s colours between 2001 and 2003.
