PSG official unveil Pochettino's replacement

PSG officially unveil Pochettino's replacement as club announce Argentine's sacking

July 5, 2022 By Ali M.
The departure of the former Spurs boss has been announced, with PSG wasting no time in naming his successor at the Parc des Princes.

PSG have finally confirmed what everyone knew to be inevitable. Mauricio Pochettino, the highly-regarded Argentine coach, has been sacked at the Parc des Princes after the club's disappointing 2021/22 campaign.

While this decision was reportedly taken a while back, the Paris giants have only made this official today, with the Ligue 1 champions announcing in a statement that they will be parting ways with the former Tottenham boss after only 18 months.

While the 50-year-old oversaw a successful French top-flight campaign, with Les Parisiens wrestling back the league crown from Lille, the European giants failed in both of the domestic cups and were humiliated in the UEFA Champions League, the most important stage, losing to Real Madrid in the round of 16.

"Paris St-Germain confirms that it has ended its collaboration with Mauricio Pochettino. The club would like to thank Mauricio Pochettino and his staff for their work and wish them the best for the future," the club's official statement read.

And PSG wasted no time in announcing his replacement. While there were rumors linking the club with a move for Zinedine Zidane, the Ligue 1 heavyweights ultimately went a different route, appointing Christophe Galtier as their new head coach.

While football fans unfamiliar with French football might not recognize this name, Galtier has established himself as one of Ligue 1's best tacticians. He was the man behind Lille's unexpected title win in 2020/21, with the Frenchman pipping Pochettino to the crown.

The 55-year-old eventually left that club last summer and took over Nice for the 2021/22 campaign. Unfortunately, goal difference denied them UEFA Europa League qualification, with Les Aiglons finishing in fifth, behind Rennes, Monaco, and Marseille.

Galtier has signed a two-year contract and was given the job mainly due to Luis Campos, PSG's new sporting director, who is an admirer of the Frenchman.
