Mauricio Roberto Pochettino Trossero (born 2 March 1972) is an Argentine professional football manager and former player, who is the current head coach of Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain. Praised for his style of play and club management, Pochettino is considered to be one of the best managers in the world.

Pochettino played as a central defender and began his professional career in 1989 with Primera División club Newell's Old Boys. There, he won a league title and finished as runner-up in the 1992 Copa Libertadores. In 1994, at age 22, he transferred to newly-promoted La Liga club Espanyol, helping establish their top-flight status and won the 2000 Copa del Rey, their first trophy in 60 years. In 2001, he joined Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain, and had a stint with Bordeaux, before returning to Espanyol in 2004, winning another Copa del Rey in 2006. He was capped 20 times for the Argentina national team and played at the 1999 Copa América and 2002 FIFA World Cup.

After retiring as a player, Pochettino began his managerial career at Espanyol in 2009. His left the club in 2012 after poor results and financial disputes. In 2013, he was appointed at Premier League club Southampton, leading them to an eighth-place finish in the 2013–14 season – their highest league position since the 2002–03 season. In 2014, he joined Tottenham Hotspur, finishing as league runner-up in the 2016–17 season and UEFA Champions League runner-up in 2019, before being dismissed after a string of poor results.
