Officially inducted this Friday, Luis Campos did not wait long to get to work. The club’s new football adviser, in charge of the first team, has been drawing the outlines of next season’s squad for several days. If the new strong man of PSG is thinking of recruiting new players to strengthen the workforce, he is also active in the search for a new coach, a man to embody the new Parisian project. Which will no longer be Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentinian technician, one year from the end of his contract with PSG, will be thanked by the leaders.
At the top of the list: Christophe Galtier. The 55-year-old Nice coach is now Luis Campos’ priority to succeed Pochettino. The two men have appreciated each other since their good agreement in Lille, which led to the title of champion of France. The French technician had also asked the Gym to bring the Portuguese to the Promenade des Anglais, in vain. As we had already revealed to you, the two men have already discussed the Parisian project and the possibility of working together again. The Nice coach has already given the green light to Luis Campos to join the reigning French champions, which is also announced by The 10 Sport. In private, the former sports director of AS Monaco confides that there is a good chance that Christophe Galtier will be on the Parisian bench next season.
Zidane, not Campos’ choice
In the new PSG, which wants to be more local in tone in recruitment, Campos was assured, before his arrival, of having carte blanche on recruitment and the choice of the future coach. Helped by Antero Henrique, formerly of the red-and-blue house, Campos has been increasing contacts and meetings for several weeks already. During these meetings, the latter explain that they want to establish a system with 3 behind. And even if Christophe Galtier is not a follower of this system, his good relationship with Luis Campos can also translate into a certain tactical flexibility.
At the same time, and as already mentioned several times, the Qataris dream of Zinedine Zidane. Discussions have been taking place for many months and so far no full agreement has been found between the two parties. Above all, despite the numerous publications about an imminent collaboration, the arrival of Zidane would be a first blow for Luis Campos, to whom he was given carte blanche on the composition of the first team. Closing the arrival of Zidane, if the latter accepts it, is to immediately weaken the brand new sports adviser of the club. It would not be the first time that a form of inconsistency has been found at Paris Saint-Germain, but the timing would be particularly questionable this time.
