Galtier will replace Pochettino, sacked this morning after 18 months in charge of PSG. The Argentine coach led the Parisian club to the French title (2021/22 season) and the Coupe de France (2020/21 season). With an all-star cast – Kylian Mbappé, Neymar and Lionel Messi – Pochettino had 55 wins, 15 draws and 14 defeats, in 84 games played.

However, PSG remains without the main continental title – the Champions League – since the purchase of the club by Qatar Sports Investment, in 2011. Since then, PSG, won eight national titles, was runner-up in the Champions League in 2020/21 and in the last edition (2021/22) he was eliminated in the round of 16 by Real Madrid, who then won the cup.
