Sebastiano Pochettino’s will be physical trainer at PSG
The PSG squad already know about the determination of Mauricio Pochettino, who said on his first day that the “nonsense” was over, and also about his son Sebastiano, who will be in charge of the physical preparation of Neymar, Mbappé and company.
Paris Saint-Germain was handed over to Mauricio Pochettino for the first time this Sunday. The Argentinian made his debut after Thomas Tuchel was dismissed after the Christmas holidays.
Pochettino arrives with members of his trusted coaching staff, many of whom have accompanied him during his stages in Southampton and Tottenham. And one of them is very special to the manager and holds an important position: his son Sebastiano.
At 25 years of age, the firstborn of the Argentinean coach is the new physical trainer of PSG. Pochettino trusts him with the players like Neymar Jr, Kylian Mbappé or his compatriots Angel Di Maria, Leandro Paredes and Mauro Icardi.
This Monday, ‘AS’ summed up the curriculum of Sebastiano Pochettino, who at his age has an enviable education. He studied at Saint Paul’s School in Barcelona and then graduated in Sports Science from the University of Southampton, during his father’s time at St Mary’s Stadium.
During those formative years, he worked as a trainer for several athletes at the university. After graduating, he was an assistant in the Sports Science department and managed it before becoming a physical trainer for Tottenham in 2019.
Now, also with a master’s degree from the University of Paris-Saclay, he arrives precisely in the French capital to take on a major challenge with his father: to make PSG a Champions League champion.
