PSG Nears Deal with Luis Enrique as New Boss
If reports are to be believed, Paris Saint-Germain is on the verge of securing former Barcelona head coach Luis Enrique’s services as their new manager.
Another Turnover for PSG?
The French champions have not yet confirmed the departure of Christophe Galtier, but it is widely assumed that his spell at the club will come to an end this summer. Galtier was appointed in July 2022 but fell short of expectations and failed to deliver Champions League success demanded by the Qatari owners.
Luis Enrique has been linked with numerous jobs since leaving Spain after the World Cup in Qatar and appears to be PSG’s top choice after talks with former Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann ended without agreement.
A Fresh Start for PSG?
PSG seems focused on resetting their club culture and trying to build a team rather than continuing their policy of signing expensive high-profile players which has so far failed them. The appointment of Luis Enrique may signal a fresh start for PSG, who have had several turnovers in recent years.
Galtier’s Short-Lived Success
Galtier made a strong start in France, avoiding defeat in 22 games across all competitions before pausing for international play. However, they lost nine times afterward and barely finished one point clear of Lens while exiting the Champions League last 16 round against Bayern Munich.
Luis Enrique’s appointment may be the positive change PSG needs to pursue Champions League glory. However, only time will tell if he can bring back their former competitive edge and restore them as a European powerhouse.
