Ligue 1: Luis Enrique, PSG’s favorite for the coaching job
“Unless there’s a surprise, PSG coach next season will not be Christophe Galtier“, affirms L’quipe emphatically. The former from Lille and Nice will not last more than one campaign in the Parc des Princes, according to all indications, and the Parisian club is already moving to (again) start the casting that allows them to find the perfect coach for the next step of the project Qatar in the club.
And in that list of candidates (which is by no means short), Luis Enrique is the favourite. This is how ‘Le Parisien’ states it: “Luis Enrique heads the list to become PSG’s coach next season”. The Frenchmen accelerate because they know they are not alone: Naples, who is going to lose Luciano Spalletti at the end of the season, has also been interested in the Spanish team.
Luis Enrique heads the list to become PSG coach next season
Meanwhile, the uncertainties continue at PSG. with the outputs of Leo Messi and Neymar on the horizon and with a Kylian Mbapp with no intention of extending his contract until 2025 (for which his contract will end next summer), the club’s current priority is to find a new captain for the ship, someone capable of continuing to win with solvency in France (something that this year has cost more than necessary). and to take that step forward in the Champions League that has not just arrived.
The main discussion, says ‘L’quipe’, is knowing who will make the decision on the next coach. Until last summer, Qatari ownership had been involved in all decisions, but Luis Campos assumed the responsibility of appointing a new coach in the summer. With the result thrown at the end of the season, they doubt the French half of if Campos will make that decision alone again or if Qatar will regain decision-making control to hire the next coach.
The other profiles on the PSG list
While Zinedine Zidane continue to be an unattainable dream for PSG, the peephole points to other names. The first is Jose Mourinhothat after winning the Conference League with Roma last season, he returned the team from the Italian capital to a European final, the one to play against Sevilla next Wednesday for the throne of the Europa League. With renewed spotlights, Mou reappears on the agendas of the greats.
In a medium profile they will be Thiago Mottawell known by the PSG fans and who is leaving good feelings with his role in the bolognaand Marcelo Gallardowho is still without a team after leaving River Plate to make the leap to Europe.
But Luis Campos has a card up his sleeve. The French newspaper gives the name of Abel Ferreiraformerly of Sporting de Braga and current coach of Palmeiras (where he has the future Real Madrid player under his orders endrick), as a possible surprise for the bench of the Parque de los Príncipes.
