Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed the appointment of Christophe Galtier as their new Manager to replace the departed Mauricio Pochettino.
Pochettino’s exit from the club was made official on Tuesday morning, with the Argentine heading for the exit door after just 18 months in charge of the Parisiens.
“Paris Saint-Germain confirm that Mauricio Pochettino has ended his role at the club. The club would like to thank Mauricio Pochettino and his staff for their work and wish them the best for the future,” a statement read.
At one stage, PSG were thought to have identified Zinedine Zidane as their leading candidate to take over at the Parc des Princes, but president Nasser Al-Khelaifi recently revealed that his club had opted against appointing the Frenchman.
Instead, PSG moved to appoint 2020-21 Ligue 1 title winner Galtier, who departed Nice after just one season in charge to replace Pochettino at the Parc des Princes on a two-year contract.
