Following weeks of speculation, the Argentine has left Parc des Princes after 18 months in charge of the Ligue 1 giants.
After taking over from Thomas Tuchel in January 2021, Pochettino guided PSG to victory over Monaco in the Coupe de France final four months later.
Having lost out to Lille the previous season, the Parisians also regained their Ligue 1 crown last term; finishing 15 points clear of second-placed Marseille.
But it was arguably the club’s continued failure to land the Champions League that proved costly for Pochettino, with his side surrendering a 2-0 aggregate lead against a Karim Benzema-inspired Real Madrid in the round of 16.
Although out of work for the time being, the highly respected 50-year-old is likely to be sought after. So, where will be his next destination?

Pochettino has been a target of United’s in the past, and was reportedly on the shortlist before Erik ten Hag got the nod.
The former Ajax boss is at the very beginning of his reign at Old Trafford, where the Red Devils are hoping for a vast improvement to their recent fortunes.
Almost a decade on, United have been unable to find a genuine long-term replacement for Sir Alex Ferguson.
Indeed, David Moyes, Louis van Gaal, Mourinho, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick have all tried, but failed.
Should the team continue to produce the inconsistent displays we have become accustomed to in recent years, it will be the manager that pays the price. Could that culminate in Pochettino taking over from Ten Hag?
