Christophe Galtier has been named the new coach of Qatari-owned French champions Paris Saint-Germain. The 55-year-old Frenchman quit as coach of Nice in June and replaces Mauricio Pochettino, who was released from his duties earlier on Tuesday.

Christophe Galtier has been appointed as the new PSG manager, contract until June 2024. “Campos’ presence was decisive. I accepted the Paris Saint-Germain job with lot of humility but with great determination”.
Pochettino left after 18 months, during which he won his first trophies as a manager: the Ligue 1 title last season and, before that, the 2020-21 Coupe de France and 2020 Trophée des Champions.

However, the former Tottenham manager fell short in the Champions League, losing in the semi-finals to Manchester City in 2021 and more damagingly to Real Madrid last season, and the football that took them to the title was widely criticised as unexciting and unconvincing.

Christophe Galtier has left his job at Nice after one season to take the post and inherits a squad that includes Kylian Mbappé, Lionel Messi, and Neymar. Mbappé caused surprise in May by rejecting Madrid to sign a new contract. Galtier, who turns 56 in August, played as a defender in his 15-year career as a professional footballer, mostly in France.
