The future of manager Christophe Galtier remains uncertain after Paris Saint-Germain crashed out of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 again, this time losing 3-0 on aggregate to Bayern Munich.
As a result, potential replacements are being circulated and speculated, with the latest name being Roberto Mancini. Il Messaggero (h/t Paris Fans) reported, citing sources, that PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has two names on his list, one of them is Mancini.
The other name joining the Italian manager is AS Roma boss José Mourinho. The Portuguese boss does have a relationship with sporting advisor Luis Campos, so it’s not Al-Khelaifi running solo on this potential search.
Furthermore, the Italian media outlet notes that there have already been meetings or discussions with Mourinho and Mancini. PSG will decide Galtier’s fate once the 2022-23 season ends.
Nonetheless, where there’s smoke, there’s fire and it likely seems that the French manager’s time with the capital club could end as the Ligue 1 side heads in a different direction for the next season.
Mancini and Mourinho have plenty of experience managing at clubs where the objective is to win the UEFA Champions League, so they wouldn’t be overwhelmed by the position.
