Luis Enrique seems to be the man taking over the managerial job at Paris Saint-Germain. The Spanish manager brings a lot of experience and cache with him to the capital club bench. Enrique has won various trophies, including the UEFA Champions League in 2015.
L’Equipe’s Loïc Tanzi recently stated that PSG wants to take a different approach with Enrique. According to the French journalist, the French giants want to remove the pressures of having a Champions League or bust mentality every season.
Additionally, Enrique wants to install his philosophy into the squad as the 53-year-old will at least be in the French capital for two seasons. Former PSG player and RMC Sport pundit Jérôme Rothen revealed what he wants to see once Enrique takes over.
“I hope that Luis Enrique will quickly put his mark in this squad,” Rothen said (h/t Paris Fans). “I also expect him to understand the history of Paris Saint-Germain and what people want too. That is to say how he transmits his ideas, how he communicates with people, how he likes this club, how he gives press conferences in French even if we will give him time.
“It’s all a matter of approach. We will have the answers the first few weeks, but I assume that given his CV and the noises we have about him, it’s not bad.”
PSG likely saw how patient Manchester City was with Pep Guardiola despite having Champions League disappointments along the way. Eventually, the Premier League club’s patience paid off this year, with them winning the tournament.
The capital club likely hopes that having an identity with Enrique and having patience, it could lead to them finally lifting the trophy that has long eluded them.
