PSG sack coach Christophe Galtier after one season

Christophe Galtier has been fired by Paris Saint-Germain after one season with the French outfit.

Galtier led PSG to the 2022–23 league title, but Bayern Munich eliminated the French club in the Champions League round of 16.

Tuesday, PSG sporting director Luis Campos informed Galtier that the team had terminated his employment and that former Bayern manager Julian Nagelsmann was anticipated to continue talks with the group.

The club reportedly met with Luis Enrique, the former head coach of Spain and Barcelona, but Nagelsmann is now their top priority because the German coach is anxious for Thierry Henry to join him as his assistant.

When Galtier was hired on a two-year contract this summer, he became PSG’s sixth permanent manager since their Qatari takeover in 2011.

Despite finishing one point ahead of Lens in second place in the Ligue 1 under the Frenchman, the French giants stagnated in the European arena as he struggled to get the best performance from superstar players like Lionel Messi and Neymar. In April, Galtier was accused of racism related to his tenure as Nice’s manager.

As PSG’s most recent season came to an end with a whimper, club executives gradually lost faith in Galtier.

Nagelsmann, a former manager of Bayern Munich, is the front-runner to replace Galtier in the Parc des Princes dugout, according to Foot Mercato, who also claims that the German is in advanced negotiations with PSG executives.

Thierry Henry, a former player for Arsenal, may join Nagelsmann at the club after he was brutally fired by Bayern in March. Henry was previously paired with Roberto Martinez for the Belgian national team, making him the ideal candidate in the eyes of the Qatari ownership to help Nagelsmann.
