On Tuesday, July 5, 2022, the PSG website officially announced the news of Galtier’s hiring. The Frenchman was chosen to replace Mauricio Pochetinno, according to sources from the team.
PSG, who struggled in the 2021/2022 season despite having quality players like Lionel Messi, Sergio Ramos, Kylian Mbappe, and others in the squad, and had only just managed to win the Ligue 1 titles, would be hoping to turn things around in the 2022/2023 club football season under a new manager with a different game plan.
The terrible UEFA Champions League performance of PSG led to the dismissal of the former Tottenham manager. The Parisians were Ligue 1 champions in the previous season (2021/22) but fell short in crucial situations. Real Madrid defeated PSG in the Round of 16 to eliminate PSG from the most lucrative club competition in Europe.
When Lille defeated PSG to win the Ligue 1 championship in the 2020–21 season, Galtier was their manager. He agreed to a two-year contract that would keep him with the team through 2024, with an option for an extension. PSG fans will be hoping that their new manager can help them win the Champions League.
