Mauro Icardi gave the Paris side the lead in the 39th minute, a lead they held onto until the 89th minute when Marseilleโ€™s Dimitri Payet equalised late on.

Unfortunately for Marseille the equaliser wasnโ€™t enough and Kylian Mbappรฉ snatched victory from the penalty spot in the 95th minute securing Pochettioโ€™s first honour at the club.

Pochettino was manager at Tottenham Hotspur for five years but never managed to win a trophy. The Argentine spent 2001 days in charge of the North-Londoners without winning a single title.

Now, just 11 days into his new job the former PSG player has gotten his hands on some much wanted silverware after a baron spell in England.

Pochettino did bring Spurs to the Champions League final in 2019 where they fell at the last hurdle losing 2-0 to fellow Premier League side Liverpool.
