PARIS (AP) — Paris Saint-Germain coach Mauricio Pochettino has been sacked and Christophe Galtier is expected to be confirmed as the new coach. Pochettino had one year left on his contract and is the fourth straight coach to be fired by PSG. In a statement PSG says “it has ended its collaboration with Mauricio Pochettino.” Pochettino won the French league but ultimately paid the price for the club’s humiliating exit from the Champions League to Real Madrid in the round of 16. PSG led 2-0 on aggregate and conceded three goals inside 20 minutes. Galtier led Lille to the French title in 2021 and joined Nice last season.
