New PSG coach: French football club PSG signs Christophe Galtier as new coach

Christophe Galtier has been named the new coach of Paris Saint-Germain to replace the sacked Mauricio Pochettino.

Galtier, who left Ligue 1 rivals PSG’s Nice last month, signed a two-year contract at the Parc des Princes with the French champions confirming the appointment shortly after announcing Pochettino’s departure.

“Yes, I’m moved, yes I’m proud,” Galtier said at a press conference.

According to the media, Galtier is expected to build a strong line-up around Kylian Mbappe in a bid to achieve Champions League glory. However, the 55-year-old manager will apparently be under huge pressure to succeed Mauricio Pochettino.

Galtier is the seventh manager appointed since the Qataris took over the French club in 2011.

According to reports, Galtier has been granted a two-year deal, building on his notable successes at Saint-Etienne and Lille. Galtier will work in tandem with football adviser Luis Campos, who recently joined PSG. Galtier and Luis have already worked together in Lille.

Commenting on his arrival at PSG, Galtier said he was delighted to work with the talented players and thanked club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi. Galtier mentioned that he is fully aware of his responsibilities in coaching PSG and is looking forward to working with Neymar.
