Paris Saint Germain head coach, Mauricio Pochettino, has signed a new one-year contract that would keep him at the Parc des Prince until 2023, The Athletic reports.

The former Tottenham manager joined PSG in January on an 18-month deal set to end in  June 2022, replacing Thomas Tuchel who recently led Chelsea to a Champions League victory.

WuzupNigeria reported Pochettino, 49, was recently linked to a move back to Spurs, following the departure of Jose Mourinho, but talks stalled and the north London club moved for Nuno Espirito Santo instead.

Pochettino said: "I'm really very happy, for myself and also for my staff.

"It's very important for us to feel the confidence of the club and we will give our maximum so that the supporters are proud of Paris Saint-Germain.

"That's why we will try and reach our objectives all together, as one. Twenty years ago I was captain of this club and today I am the coach… It's a dream come true."

PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi added: "We are delighted that Mauricio has reaffirmed his commitment to the Paris Saint-Germain family.

"Having also captained the team 20 years ago, he understands the club values, ambition and vision for the future. With Mauricio's leadership, we're excited and confident about what the future holds."
