PSG manager Pochettino tests positive for Covid-19
Jan. 15, 2021
Paris St Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino has tested positive for coronavirus.
The former Tottenham manager only took over at the Parc des Princes on 2 January and led the club to Trophee des Champions glory on Wednesday with a 2-1 victory over Marseille.
But the 48-year-old will now self isolate and is set to miss the club's next two Ligue 1 fixtures against Angers and Montpellier.
"He will therefore respect isolation and is subject to the appropriate health protocol. His assistants Jesus Perez and Miguel D’Agostino will take over from tomorrow in Angers."
Victory over rivals Marseille in midweek saw Pochettino win the first major trophy of his managerial career following spells with Espanyol, Southampton and Tottenham during the last decade.
