An astronomical salary, according to l’Equipe.fr, for the new coach of Paris-Saint-Germain Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentinian, successor to Thomas Tuchel, who signed up with PSG until June 2022, would receive 525,000 euros net, or “about 940,000 euros gross per month”.
At a time when the club is counting on a vertiginous loss of earnings, in the midst of the Covid-19 crisis, the coach’s contract is out of place, even astonishing. This is no doubt a sign that it already belongs to the elite of technicians who count when it has just opened its record with the Champions Trophy won in Lens ahead of Marseille (2-1). In the club’s salary grid, he thus arrives just behind stars like Neymar, Kylian Mbappé or Keylor Navas.
An increase “from next season”

This golden contract is superior to the one he touched on the Tottenham bench. He made him the coach of the QSI era, shareholder of PSG since July 2011, the most paid. Carlo Ancelotti earned 600,000 euros in gross per month, Thomas Tuchel finished at 625,000 euros in gross monthly.
Meanwhile, Laurent Blanc, who has had several contracts, has fluctuated between 400,000 and 700,000 euros in monthly gross, and Unai Emery around 600,000 euros. No PSG coach under the Qatari flag has gone to the end of his engagement.
