PSG part ways with manager Christophe Galtier

Paris Saint-Germain have parted company with manager Christophe Galtier, according to Le Parisien.

The French club won the Ligue 1 title in his only season in charge, but it was not enough to save him.

PSG sporting advisor Luis Campos informed Galtier of the club’s decision today, with an official statement expected soon.

The 56-year-old joined Les Parisiens from OGC last July on a two-year deal, replacing Mauricio Pochettino.

PSG pipped Lens to the title by just a point, and the fans booed him during Saturday’s title celebrations at the Parc des Princes.

The French club were eliminated by Bayern Munich in the Champions League last-16.

They were also knocked out of the Coupe de France by Marseille in February.

Galtier had been linked with an exit since the beginning of the year, and his eventual sacking has not come as a surprise.

The club were displeased with his decision to announce that Lionel Messi will leave at the end of the season before an official announcement was made.

Galtier was also forced to deny racism allegations levelled against him by former Nice players.

PSG are already looking for a replacement, with former Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann favourite to take over.

Napoli are also interested in appointing the 35-year-old after Luciano Spalletti left.

However, he prefers to join the French club and Thierry Henry has been linked with the assistant coaching role.

More changes are expected at the club this summer, with Messi and Neymar expected to leave.

PSG want to win the Champions League, but it remains to be seen whether Nagelsmann is the man to get the job done.
