Paris Saint-Germain will likely have a new manager relatively soon. One of the prominent candidates for the position to replace Mauricio Pochettino is current OGC Nice boss Christophe Galtier.
The French tactician has worked with PSG sporting advisor Luis Campos at Lille OSC, where they wrestled the Ligue 1 title away from the capital club during the 2020-21 season.
However, there’s discussion as to whether the job with the French giants would be too much for Galtier to handle, considering he’s never held a position of this magnitude. During a segment on L’Équipe du soir, journalist Mélisande Gomez believes that Galtier must have a chance.
Furthermore, she wants to see PSG follow in the footsteps of Bayern Munich, who has gone with German managers with their last two hirings in Hansi Flick and Julian Nagelsmann.

“[Galtier] did a great job at Saint-Etienne. Really, at OM, it was not at all the same pressures; it was not the same expectations. It just as it is not the same locker room,” Gomez said.
“He did a good job in Lille anyway. We are doing very well, I think. And so here is the state, we say to ourselves, but why not? Why not try a French coach like Bayern often try German coaches.”
