Paris Saint-Germain manager Christophe Galtier is under the microscope after the French tactician allegedly made racist comments during the coach’s one-season managerial stint with OGC Nice.
Since the accusation has come out publicly, Galtier has received death threats, but the PSG gaffer did address the situation with a statement to the Agence France-Presse. However, another person in the middle is Julien Fournier, the former sporting director of Nice.
“I am currently in Brazil far from this controversy with which I am associated at my expense,” Fournier told Nice Matin. “I am in no way responsible for the dissemination of this year-old internal information at the time of my departure from the club.
“I have never shot an ambulance, despite all our differences with Christophe Galtier and above all I have too much respect for OGC Nice, a club whose colors I proudly defended for more than ten years and the people in place, who are currently preparing one of the most important meetings in their history in the European Cup. The timing of these revelations revolts me just as much as their content.”
Regarding the capital club, RMC Sport notes that “Parisian leaders are continuing their investigation” to uncover the truth on this matter. As a result, more information should be coming out in the coming days about what occurred and if it will affect Galtier’s tenure in Paris.
Galtier already has his future with the French giants and this might be the nail that makes PSG move from him. However, rumors over various potential replacements continue to fill the mill and a new voice could be coming soon this summer
