Pochettino replaces Thomas Tuchel, who was sacked by the French club four months after steering them to their first Champions League final where they lost to Bayern Munich in Lisbon.
Pochettino, who played for PSG from 2001 to 2003, told RMC Sport in 2016: "Coach one day at PSG, that would make me happy. It is a dream of mine.
