The year goes on and on. “I measure the responsibility for PSG to have a great season. I’ve prepared for this. If I accepted this position, it is because I am capable of it, ”Christophe Galtier announced with ambition during his presentation at the Parc des Princes on July 5th. After the season in the capital, the coach is already going to get ready. According to our information, Luis Campos announced to him in the last hours that he would no longer be a coach.
This is not a surprise at all, moreover, Galtier had no illusions about the fate prepared for him, which he was able to entrust to some relatives in recent weeks. At the time of counting, the only Ligue 1 to win by a small point ahead of RC Lens (the smallest margin since the arrival of QSI) does not weigh much in the scale against eliminations in the eighth Champions League final against Bayern Munich and Coupe de France from OM.
On an extra-sporting level, Galtier also had a tumultuous season. The sand yacht affair, the alleged racism during his visit to Nice, or even more recently his premature announcement of Messi’s departure, which PSG didn’t seem to like, have not boosted his popularity rating. Nothing more than the whistles at the Parc des Princes on Saturday night and his absence from the top Ligue 1 coaches at the UNFP Trophies. Galtier became the club’s seventh manager to remain on the bench since the arrival of the Qataris in 2011.
The Parisian government was already far advanced in the search for its successor. Many names have been circulated, including the last name of Julian Nagelsmann. The former Bayern Munich coach is prominent in the minds of the decision makers who will now be accelerating on this priority list. Luis Enrique is another famous name from Doha who is similar to Leverkusen manager Xabi Alonso. Three names appear most often at this stage.
