PSG is having a very embarrassing season. The first half was great, but after the World Cup everything started to fall apart. The French Cup and the Champions League dropped out and Paris will be happy to win the league title again. That’s why the question is who will lead the team next season. In France, they are beginning to have a clear idea.
To be PSG coach for more than one year? Difficult. And now Christophe Galtier, who failed to fulfil the French club’s dream of winning the Champions League, is learning that too. As another of many. In fact, ever since he dropped out of the millionaire competition, the question has been who will replace him.
While there is still no official end in sight, according to the French media, led by RMC Sport, there is only one thing to wait for – when the Parisians officially win the league title. Once that happens, Galtier’s end is expected to be announced.
And what next? The club’s management has long dreamed of Zinedine Zidane taking over the team. But the man who won four times as a coach with Real Madrid has other plans. In Italy, he believes he should take over at Juventus, where he wants to launch a long-term project.
That leaves PSG to look elsewhere and by all accounts the second most ideal candidate is Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese coach is currently confirming his qualities at AS Roma, where he is doing wonders despite minimal investment in strengthening the team.
With his squad now, Mourinho is still fighting for Champions League places and is battling more than valiantly against richer and, more importantly, better quality opponents. He has returned enthusiasm, heart, emotion and passion to the club. That is to say, what is normal for him.
However, the Portuguese is under contract at Roma until 2024, which means PSG will have to address his possible release with the Italian club. Moreover, it is unclear whether Mourinho will nod to the offer. How much the AS management is willing to invest in the club over the summer could play a big role.
According to RMC Sport and Diario AS, PSG’s sporting director has already opened talks with Mourinho, although a formal offer has not yet been made.
And why Mourinho? Because, in addition to the aforementioned ability to bring passion, heart and emotion back to the club, he thrives in the cups. He confirmed this at Roma, with whom he dominated the Conference League in his first season.
Mourinho is the only one to have won all three European cup competitions. He won the Europa League with Manchester United, the UEFA Cup and the Champions League with Porto, and the millionaire competition with Inter Milan.
