Galtier denies accusations of racism

PSG's Galtier denies accusations of past racism

April 12, 2023 By Michelle Bonsu
PSG's current boss has hit back at reports accusing him of racism while he was in charge of fellow Ligue 1 side Nice.

With PSG having been eliminated early from the Champions League, there are growing reports that Christophe Galtier could be on his way out of the Parc des Princes sooner than expected.

However, new reports have indicated that the French tactician is now facing a whole other issue. The 56-year-old, who plied his trade as a defender before moving into management, previously managed Nice for one season prior to being appointed on a two-year deal to coach PSG in 2022.

Due to a series of leaked emails, Galtier is being accused of using racist language when addressing several Black and Muslim players on the books at Nice. The email exchange, which involved Nice sporting director Julien Fournier, highlights several racist comments that apparently Galtier made during his one year in charge of Nice from 2021 to 2022.

Naturally, Galtier has vehemently denied this and has threatened legal action in order to try to clear his name. As of now, PSG have apparently launched an internal investigation, but until that is resolved, it appears that Galtier will continue to remain in charge of the first team. Les Parisiens, who interestingly beat Galtier's former side Nice 2-0 last time out, are in action this weekend against Lens in a match that will pit first against second.
