While the future of Mauricio Pochettino, under contract until June 2023, is rumored, Paris SG continues to choose it. We know that many names have been or have been studied, from Antonio Conte (Tottenham Hotspur) to Joachim Lo (Free) via Thiago Motta (Spezia), without any names actually emerging. Zinedine Zidane, full-time since his departure from Real Madrid, remains his top priority and the dream of QSI owners. However, even if his future at the club remains uncertain, Leonardo does not stand idly by and doubles down on contacts.
Thus, according to our information, the sporting director of the capital club recently met Sergio Conceicao, the coach of FC Porto. The Portuguese coach is emerging from another successful season with a Liga Bwin title and Portugal Cup final still to be played, despite an early elimination in Europe (third in his group in the Champions League, eighth in the Europa League against Olympique Lyonnais). The Lusitanian who seemed receptive to the idea of joining the Parisian project is not Leonardo’s priority. Under contract until June 2024 with Dragões, where he has been training since 2017, the former FC Nantes coach has a €10m release clause. But again, in Doha, where everything is implemented, the entire sports setting will be (or not) completely redesigned by the emirate’s decision makers. Some time ago, former sporting director Antero Henrique checked the Portuguese coach’s name to succeed Emery.
