Christophe Galtier is fighting for his future as Paris Saint-Germain boss, with GOAL learning that he has just two games in which to save his job.
Christophe Galtier has two games left to save his job as manager of Paris Saint-Germain after a poor run of form threatens the club’s league title.
PSG have lost 8 of their 18 matches in all competitions since the start of 2023. Consecutive Ligue 1 defeats, the first against Stade Rennais just before the international break and the second against Olympique Lyonnais just after, have allowed Olympique de Marseille and RC Lens to close to within six points of the league leaders.
Les Parisiens must travel to OGC Nice on Saturday before hosting RC Lens the following week, who may actually be a title contender. The results of these games will determine Galtier’s immediate future as PSG manager. If the table head’s championship is further in danger and keeps losing, he will go out of the club.
Christophe Galtier is in the EDGE of losing his JOB
In any case, Galtier’s future is currently being under decision. Galtier, a former Nice manager, will leave the club if PSG is successful in persuading the best candidate to take over on the Parc des Princes bench. Galtier hopes Les Parisiens are unsuccessful in finding a suitable replacement.
Only in the summer of 2022 did the 56-year-old former Nice and Lille manager succeed Mauricio Pochettino as manager at Parc des Princes. However, he has failed to bring Champions League success to the French capital and his star-studded team has struggled to maintain consistency in 2023.
Galtier will be evaluated over the course of PSG’s upcoming two contests, which are at home against Lens on April 15 and away at Nice on Saturday. Galtier has stated that he is already working on plans for 2023–2024 with Nasser Al–Khelaifi and Luis Campos, but if performances and results do not significantly improve, he may not have a job by the end of the month.
