History will therefore remember that it was in a press release of around twenty lines, in the middle of the Zinédine Zidane storm that the arrival of Luis Campos as PSG football adviser was formalized on Friday.
A text that never mentions the departure of Leonardo, dismissed from his post ten days ago and where the club of the capital welcomes the arrival of a “world renowned expert” renowned for “its modern and innovative approach”. This formalization comes a few days after the Portuguese (57) moved to Qatar.
A visit where the former boss of the sportsman in Monaco then Lille had negotiated in particular his status and his prerogatives. Campos was keen to retain his role as an outside adviser. He won his case with the Qatari leaders. On his power, in accordance with what had been negotiated on the sidelines of the negotiations on the extension of Kylian Mbappé, he is broad: the PSG specifies that he will be in charge “organization”, “recruitment” and the “men’s professional team performance”.
Three midfielders, a striker and a side are also targeted
Campos did not wait for this formalization to embark on its recruitment campaign. In the company of Antero Henrique, he multiplied the steps to initiate contacts. With two priority objectives: the position of central defender (Interist Milan Skriniar is the absolute priority) and that of number 6 (three midfielders, a striker and a side are also targeted).
More generally, the two PSG decision-makers consider it necessary to give a more French identity to the Parisian workforce.
