PSG Mercato: Mentioned as Luis Campos’ favorite to succeed Mauricio Pochettino at Paris SG, Christophe Galtier (OGC Nice) has responded to the rumour.
OGC Nice Mercato: Galtier kicks in for the succession of Pochettino
OGC Nice came back on Saturday for their last outing of the season. Led 2-0 at halftime, Nice managed to overthrow Stade de Reims in the second act. Author of a hat-trick, Andy Delort allowed the Gym to win on the lawn of the Champagne club. Thanks to this success, the Aiglons will compete in the Europa League Conference play-offs. It remains to be seen whether it will be with Christophe Galtier.
After a season at the Gym, the future of the 54-year-old technician is at the heart of rumours. He was notably sent to Paris Saint-Germain to take over from Mauricio Pochettino. Strongly tipped to replace Leonardo as sporting director, Luis Campos, who has already collaborated with the 55-year-old Marseillais on the Lille side, would like to appoint him in place of Pochettino. But the Nice coach showed his surprise when discussing a departure for PSG.
A blurry future for Galtier with Nice?
“You teach me. It is information. I am very surprised at what you are telling me. I don’t know what to tell you. No response to that. What I have seen is Mbappé stays and that is very important for the champion and for the visibility of Ligue 1,” said Christophe Galtier after the stunning success at OGC Nice. Arrived last summer after a title of champion of France with Lille, his contract with the Riviera club is still valid until 2024.
As for Mauricio Pochettino, he has only one year left on his contract at Paris Saint-Germain. A major cleaning is also underway in Paris after the extension of Mbappé’s contract. After the manita inflicted on Metz on Saturday, PSG formalized the departure of Leonardo, its sporting director. After the Brazilian technician, it is the Argentinian who should be thanked.
