Paris Saint-Germain manager Christophe Galtier has been placed under “personal and family protection” by the club after receiving multiple death threats, according to a report from RMC Sport.
Galtier has reportedly received nearly 5,000 messages and calls over the past day, “some of which were clearly death threats.”
RMC Sport and multiple other French media outlets recently published snippets of an alleged email from former OGC Nice director of football Julien Fournier to Ineos director of sports Dave Brailsford in which he accused Galtier of making racist comments during the coach’s one-season managerial stint with Les Aiglons.
RMC Sport added that “Parisian leaders are continuing their investigation” in an effort to uncover the truth on this matter.
Galtier denied the allegations in a statement released by his lawyer, which noted that the PSG manager was “stunned to learn of the insulting and defamatory.”
Galtier reportedly made an appearance at the Camp des Loges on Wednesday to lead a scheduled training session for the PSG squad ahead of its Ligue 1 home fixture against RC Lens. He reportedly did not touch base with the team to speak about the allegations.
Galtier is currently in the first year of the two-year contract deal that he signed off on with PSG last summer.
