PSG keeping tabs on Steven Gerrard amid uncertainty surrounding Galtier’s future

Paris Saint-Germain are considering Steven Gerrard as a potential replacement for manager Christophe Galtier, reports the Scottish Daily Express.

The French club had to come from behind to escape a fourth consecutive defeat last weekend.

PSG were 2-0 up against Lille on Sunday but fell 3-2 behind with 21 minutes remaining.

In extraordinary scenes, the club’s sporting director Luis Campos went to the technical area to bark instructions at the players.

Goals from Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi saw PSG run out 4-3 winners in the end. Nevertheless, Galtier appears close to the exit door.

Les Parisiens have been linked with AS Roma manager Jose Mourinho. A return for Thomas Tuchel has also been mooted.

However, reports from Scotland claim PSG’s Qatar owners are interested in Gerrard.

They see him as a major high-profile figure who could improve them next season.

The French club remain favourites to retain the Ligue 1 title despite their slim lead at the top of the table.

However, winning the Champions League remains the number 1 priority.

The Parc des Princes club lost 1-0 in the first leg of the round of 16 tie against Bayern Munich at home last week.

It will take some incredible individual and team performances to turn things around at the Allianz Arena.

They have been dealt a massive injury blow, with Neymar a doubt for the game after he was stretchered off against Lille.

Galtier could be gone sooner or later, but whether Gerrard could take them to the next level is debatable.

The former Rangers manager won the Scottish Premiership in his first stint as a boss in 2021.

The 42-year-old joined Aston Villa mid-way through 2021-22 after three-and-a-half years at Ibrox.

Gerrard was dismissed 11 months later after the club won just two of their opening 12 Premier League games. The Liverpool legend won 13 and lost 19 out of the 40 games he oversaw at Villa.

He ended his Rangers tenure with a 64.8 win percentage, but has he done enough to land one of the biggest jobs in the game?
