With just two matches under his belt as Paris Saint-Germain head coach, Mauricio Pochettino has the chance to win the first silverware of his managerial career in Wednesday's Trophee des Champions clash with bitter rivals Olympique de Marseille.

The 48-year-old Argentine arrives at Parc des Princes to tackle one of the biggest challenges in European soccer as one of the star names in his profession, yet he returns to the French capital -- where he captained PSG during his playing days nearly 20 years ago -- without a trophy to his name.

Pochettino is held in tremendously high regard in England after productive spells with Southampton and then Tottenham Hotspur and now the South American is aiming to take the next step with a club on the verge of joining Europe's elite after last season's UEFA Champions League final run.
