PSG: the start of the Galtier era in Paris is imminent


The 55-year-old coach will succeed Mauricio Pochettino, dismissed a year before the end of his contract. His engagement for two seasons with

One leaves, the other arrives.

Greedy to the last penny, Mauricio Pochettino did not let go in the financial negotiations on the conditions of his dismissal from PSG, one year from the end of his contract.

Although very quickly agreed on the act of separation, the Argentine coach made no gift to the club of the capital.

His lawyers negotiated until the euro close to the termination, probably effective on Tuesday.

Then place the formalization of Christophe Galtier, the new PSG coach for the next three years according to the following breakdown: two years firm and one optional.

The former coach of Saint-Étienne and Lille, 55, leaves Nice, a year after his arrival.

According to our information, Paris has paid compensation of 5 million euros to buy out the last two years of Galtier's contract on the Côte d'Azur.

The Swiss Lucien Favre, 64, former technician of the Aiglons (2016-2018), succeeds him.

He even led his first training session on Monday at the same time as the club of Jean-Pierre Rivère formalized the departure of the Frenchman.

Galtier will have an authority that none of his predecessors will have known before him

Galtier should therefore take up residence this weekend at Camp des Loges to welcome the whole troop on Monday, July 4 for the resumption of training.

The winner of the best coach trophy three times (2013, 2019 and 2021), the first of which tied with Carlo Ancelotti then at PSG, saw the consecration of his career, which began as head coach in 2009 with the Greens.

He will have an authority that none of his predecessors will have known before him because he comes in duet with Luis Campos, the architect of the new PSG.


Who is Christophe Galtier, the probable new PSG coach?

The president's sports adviser will decide everything regarding the first team and his first choice, probably the only one on his shortlist, has been Galtier.

With the legitimacy of his superior, the former central defender will have all the freedom to decide, knowing that it is a real pair now at work.

Galtier will choose after consultation with Campos.

They know each other by heart, have already won together – the title of French champion in Lille in 2021 – and love to work hand in hand, in a form of mutual admiration.

Very good communicator, Galtier will now embody the face of PSG, for the first time in the language of Molière since 2016 and the departure of Laurent Blanc.

The challenge ahead seems immense.

It will be necessary to win but also to convince through the game, while Galtier has left a contrasting mark in Lille and Nice in this area.

But he had never led a staff of stars and cracks like the one that awaits him in Paris.

The most beautiful but also the hardest begins for him.
