PSG name Galtier as new manager after sacking Pochettino

Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) has announced Christophe Galtier as their new manager, shortly after the Ligue 1 champions parted ways with Mauricio Pochettino.

Galtier joins PSG on a two-year contract after leaving Nice last month, having guided them to a runners-up finish in the French Cup and fifth place in Ligue 1 last season.

The 55-year-old Frenchman joined Nice in 2021 after leading Lille to their first Ligue 1 title since 2011 in the previous campaign. Before joining Lille, Galtier spent eight seasons at Saint-Etienne, where he won the French Cup in 2012-2013.

"When you’re here at the Parc des Princes you feel the expectations" Galtier, who is PSG’s first French coach since Laurent Blanc in 2013-16, said on Tuesday.

"I appreciate the responsibility that I have so that PSG can have a great season. I have been getting ready for it. If I have accepted his job it is because I am capable of it. But we have to do it all together," he said.
