Pochettino clinches first career trophy as PSG wins French Super Cup


New Paris Saint-Germain manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has won his first ever trophy.

PSG defeated Marseille 2-1 on Wednesday night to clinch the French Super Cup.

Brazil forward Neymar, who had been out of action since mid-December with an ankle injury, netted from the penalty spot in the second half to add to Mauro Icardi’s first-half opener.

Icardi, who has been struggling for goals this season, found the back of the net in the first half to set Ligue 1 champions PSG on the way to a routine win against last season’s runners-up Marseille.

Dimitri Payet pulled one back for Marseille in the 89th minute when he latched onto Florian Thauvin’s cross.

But PSG held firm to give Pochettino his second win in three games with the capital side.

Pochettino, who last managed Tottenham Hotspur, had previously been beaten in the English Carabao Cup final in 2015 and the Champions League final four years later.
