Ligue 1 2022-23 winners Paris Saint Germain are set to sack their manager Christophe Galtier after just one season. Capping off an average 2022-23 season, the Parisians managed to win only one major trophy while suffering exits from the French domestic Cup and the Champions League.
Galtier has the seventh permanent PSG manager since their Qatari takeover in 2011. He was appointed on a two-year contract last summer and managed to retain their Ligue 1 crown by just finishing one point ahead of second-placed Lens. The development was confirmed by journalist Ben Jacobs, who tweeted how the club director Luis Campos has directly contacted Galtier to let him know about this decision.
The tweet said, “Christophe Galtier will leave PSG. He has now been told directly by Luis Campos and a settlement process is underway. No official confirmation from PSG yet, but Galtier is gone.”

But PSG struggled to perform in the Champions League, primarily with Christophe Galtier failing to maximise the likes of Lionel Messi and Neymar. Galtier also faced allegations of racism in April from his time in charge at Nice. These factors have led to the club losing faith in him.
Hence reports of Paris Saint-Germain starting talks with Julian Nagelsmann to replace Galtier as coach, have surfaced as per ESPN. The former Bayern Munich manager is expected to be in the French capital on Tuesday for talks. Similarly, reports of AS Roma manager Jose Mourinho being a candidate have also surfaced with Paris Saint-Germain showing early interest as per Sky Sports.
