Thomas Tuchel receives support to replace current PSG coach Christophe Galtier

There are rumours that many Paris Saint-Germain officials back Thomas Tuchel’s bid to replace Christophe Galtier, the manager who is being investigated for possible wrongdoing.

As a result of PSG’s recent string of bad results, especially their 1-0 loss to Bayern Munich in the first leg of their round of 16 Champions League match on Tuesday, Galtier is under more pressure as the club’s manager. RMC Sport says that some of the club’s high-profile board members are questioning whether Galtier is the right person to lead PSG forward, and Tuchel has gotten some support for a possible return to the team.

After two and a half years as Paris Saint-manager, the German was fired in December 2020. During that time, he led the team to its first-ever Champions League final and won back-to-back Ligue 1 titles. Tuchel got the job at Chelsea in the end, but he hasn’t had a job since he was fired from Stamford Bridge in September of last year.

There are other people who could win besides Tuchel. Even though Zinedine Zidane has turned down job offers from the club in the past, the Emir of Qatar, who is one of the most important people at PSG, still wants the former Real Madrid manager to run the club. Word on the street is that Galtier would have until March 8 to fix things. At the Allianz Arena on this day, the second leg of their match against Bayern will be played.

PSG has had a rough start to 2023, losing three games in a row. Lionel Messi and Neymar have not played as well as they usually do. They could be knocked out of the Champions League early, and they could still be challenged for the Ligue 1 title right up until the end. Even though Paris Saint-Germain is sick, Galtier has struggled to get the best out of the team.

Still, the PSG coach is sure that his team will be able to beat Bayern as long as they can play a full-strength team in Germany.

When asked about the game’s result afterwards, Galtier said, “Of course it’s disappointing, but we all thought there wouldn’t be any qualifying or elimination today.” “In three weeks, we’ll know how our team is doing, including if we’ve regained our freshness and added the players we need to play a full match at the same level as the last half-hour we played tonight,” said the coach.

Galtier will be hoping that PSG wins the next weekend when they go to Lille to try to get back to winning.
