Mauricio Pochettino wins first trophy as manager in just third PSG game

Mauricio Pochettino has won his first trophy as a manager

Mauricio Pochettino has won his first trophy as a manager in his third game in charge of Paris St Germain.

The 48-year-old former Tottenham boss only replaced Thomas Tuchel at the French club earlier this month.

Yet Pochettino has done what he could not do at Spurs and claimed silverware, after PSG beat Marseille 2-1 to win the Trophee des Champions for an eighth year in a row.

Mauro Icardi scored the opener in the 39th minute before Neymar’s penalty five minutes from time sealed the win, with Dimitri Payet netting a late consolation.
