PSG Boss Pochettino Lands First Trophy Of Managerial Career

Mauricio Pochettino has won the first trophy of his managerial career as his Paris St-Germain side beat Marseille to win the Trophee des Champions in Lens.

Pochettino’s maiden trophy comes after just three games and eleven days in charge of PSG.

Mauro Icardi scored PSG’s opener from close range and won a penalty which Neymar scored for the second.

Dmitri Payet scored a late consolation with a clever flick for Marseille.

The Trophee des Champions is France’s version of the Community Shield – a game between the league and cup winners.

The victory continues PSG’s dominance of French football. They have won 19 of their past 20 finals in domestic cups and have won this competition for the past eight years.

Pochettino failed to win anything in almost four years at Espanyol, 16 months at Southampton and five and a half years with Spurs.

The former PSG defender lost the 2015 League Cup and 2019 Champions League finals with Spurs.
