While Christophe Galtier is unlikely to continue as coach of PSG, the Emir of Qatar has reportedly tasked Nicolas Sarkozy with convincing Zinedine Zidane.
Unless there is a huge turnaround, Christophe Galtier is unlikely to be the coach of Paris Saint-Germain next season. Appointed last July to replace Mauricio Pochettino, the Marseille technician will pay the price for the Rouge et Bleu’s early eliminations in the Coupe de France and the Champions League.
Despite a contract running until June 2024, the former iconic coach of AS Saint-Étienne will have to make way for another coach at the end of the current season. In search of a new technician for next season, PSG executives have not given up on Zinedine Zidane. The Emir of Qatar, owner of the French capital club, is said to have personally taken on this matter.
PSG Mercato: Zinedine Zidane on the bench at Paris SG?
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Qatari decision-makers at Paris Saint-Germain are seriously considering going after Zinedine Zidane again next summer. Real Madrid, which could part ways with Carlo Ancelotti, is also inclined to offer Zidane a third term. Aware of this Madrid threat, the Emir of Qatar reportedly asked Nicolas Sarkozy to convince Zidane.
Being close to Qatar and a big fan of PSG, the former President of the French Republic would thus do everything possible to convince the 1998 World Cup Champion to take over from Christophe Galtier on the Rouge et Bleu bench, according to Media Foot, which asserts that the efforts of the 68-year-old politician could pay off.
