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.
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.
