Speaking on his official YouTube channel, Rio Ferdinand said: “I don’t think that Mauricio Pochettino leaves Paris Saint-Germain during the season. He’s a man or integrity, he’s a man of respect.
“I think he’s grateful for the opportunity to be at PSG and as a man, I think he’ll just say: ‘If they want me that bad they’ll wait.’ He’s got a lot of stuff going on at PSG so you have to be respectful in that sense.
“It’s about what PSG want because they’re not the kind of club that will just relinquish their manager. I’m putting money on Pochettino, for the end of the season, my money is on Pochettino being manager there.”
Meanwhile, Mauricio Pochettino is contracted to PSG until June 2023 but there have been rumors about the Argentine leaving to take over at Manchester United mid-season.
As of now, the Red Devils are looking to replace Michael Carrick with an interim manager until the end of the 2021/22 campaign before appointing a long-term replacement.
