PSG chief Leonardo makes clear Pochettino and Zidane plans

PSG chief Leonardo wants coach Maurico Pochettino to stay.

Pochettino is being linked with Manchester United after their sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

"We do not want Mauricio Pochettino to go," he told AFP. "He has never asked to leave and nobody has contacted us for him."

Leonardo also dismissed a report first published in Le Parisien on Thursday that PSG had held a secret hotel meeting with Zinedine Zidane to sound him out as a potential replacement when Pochettino leaves.

"We respect Zinedine Zidane a lot, both as a player and coach, but I tell you very clearly that there has been no contact. No meeting," Leonardo said.
