While PSG has yet to agree on the departure of Mauricio Pochettino, Christophe Galtier is preparing his future technical staff. The French coach, in constant contact with Luis Campos, should surround himself largely with assistants with whom he collaborated in Nice or Lille. From the Côte d’Azur, L’Équipe let it be known that Galtier should take on board the man who has become his faithful assistant, Thierry Oleksiak, with whom he has worked since the summer of 2015. Isidre Ramon Madir should also make the trip. The Spaniard, who has worked for FC Barcelona, ​​Watford and Valencia CF, arrived in Nice last summer where he took on the role of assistant in charge of video analysis. In Paris, he should have the same functions.

The physical preparation could be entrusted to another acquaintance of the French coach, the Spaniard Pedro Gomez Piqueras who worked in Lille during the 2018-2019 season. Nicolas Mayer, who was associated with Sebastiano Pochettino in physical preparation this season, should for his part take the head of the performance department of PSG as a whole and therefore keep his job. Another technician should stay in Paris: Italian goalkeeping coach Gianluca Spinelli. His proximity and his understanding with Keylor Navas and his compatriot Gianluigi Donnarumma are a major asset for the two internationals to collaborate.

Finally, a second assistant could strengthen the staff of Galtier. The name of Joao Sacramento, with whom the French coach worked at Lille before he left to join José Mourinho at Tottenham, has been mentioned. Even if the relationship between the two was able to stretch after the sudden departure of the Portuguese from Lille, Galtier appreciates his skills. The one who replaced him at LOSC, his compatriot Jorge Maciel, is another option. At the end of the contract in the North, he is free to commit where he wants. But the upcoming arrival of Paulo Fonseca in Lille could encourage him to stay.

to summarize

The signing of Christophe Galtier at PSG would only be a matter of hours, with OGC Nice already on track to replace him with Lucien Favre. Even his staff is starting to take shape in Paris with five target reinforcements.
