Paris St Germain have appointed 55year old French manager Christophe Galtier as their manager going into the new season. PSG announced the appointment of the French manager after the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino as head coach after just two seasons at the French capital.
With PSG‘s high standards, the job as head coach is one of the most demanding jobs any manager can take on. The club has developed an habit of changing managers after a short period of time and managers like Thomas Tuchel, Unai Emery and Mauricio Pochettino have all tried and come up-short of the club’s demands.
PSG have made glaring their desire to win the UEFA Champions League, despite the club’s massive wealth both financially and in squad depth they seem to always struggle in Europe’s biggest footballing stage. The addition of Lionel Messi to a squad that already contains Kylian Mbappe and Neymar is already enough pressure for any manager to handle and this is a task that Christophe Galtier has now been trusted with.
The French manager has managed at Saint Ettiene, Lille and Nice. Known for his remarkable league triumph with Lille in the 20/21 season. He also guided Nice to a 5th place finish in Ligue 1 last season.
Galtier favours attacking football, with the 4-2-3-1 formation his preferred set-up tactic, with the addition of Reims youngster Hugo Ekitikè on loan from Reims, Galtier has to get his star-studded team firing on all cylinders if they are to PSE a threat to Europe’s finest this season.
