Paris Saint-Germain still has not made an official decision on just who will be the team’s manager for next season. Still, new PSG football advisor Luis Campos has current OGC Nice manager Christophe Galtier as his top option to replace Mauricio Pochettino, as noted by FootMercato.
Campos reportedly would prefer to see PSG play under a three-at-the-back system. Even as Galtier operated Lille OSC and OGC Nice under a 4-4-2 setup over the past two seasons, the report adds that their “good” relationship can lead to a certain amount of “tactical flexibility” on this matter.
Pochettino rolled out a three-at-the-back setup numerous times over this past season, which provided Sergio Ramos with much-needed playing time minutes and saw Marquinhos lead the side’s backline.
For one, the Argentine manager called for his side to play under a 3-5-2 formation in the 3-0 away Ligue 1 win against Angers, as center-back Thilo Kehrer tagged along with Marquinhos and Ramos — both of whom scored in the match.
OGC Nice director of football Julien Fournier did note last week that PSG “must not delay” if it aspires to bring in Galtier to manage the club, so a resolution to the Ligue 1 powerhouse’s managerial dilemma may soon need to come.
