Former coach of Nice Christophe Galtier has been named on Tuesday as the new coach
of Qatari-owned French champions Paris Saint-Germain.
The 55-year-old Frenchman who quitted as coach of Nice in June now replaces Mauricio Pochettino,
who was released from his duties earlier on Tuesday.
Meanwhile Galtier who guided Lille to the Ligue 1 title in 2021 is PSG’s seventh coach
since the Qataris bought the club 11 years ago
and will be expected to finally lift the Champions League trophy.
Furthermore Christophe Galtier has now signed a two-year deal until the summer of 2024.
Speaking on the new appointment, Christophe says and we quote;
“I am delighted to join Paris Saint-Germain,
And I would like to thank the chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi, [football advisor] Luis Campos
Also the club for their confidence in me,” he said.
“I am fully aware of the responsibilities involved to coach this extraordinary team,
which is one of the most competitive and spectacular squads in Europe.”
However more of his statements has raised eye brows
as during his speech, Christophe stressed on how no player is bigger than the club
Many football fans believe this may be a warning to some PSG players.
Regardless we are all looking forward to the changes Christophe Galtier will bring to PSG
