Paris Saint-Germain head coach Christophe Galtier and football advisor Luis Campos are expected to remain at the club, despite another early Champions League exit, according to a report from Le Parisien.
The Qatari ownership has, surprisingly, opted for stability for the sporting hierarchy of PSG. The outlet reports that only the loss of the Ligue 1 title may cost Galtier and Campos their jobs. PSG have an 8-point lead on second-placed arch-rivals Marseille as we approach Ligue 1 gameweek 27. Les Parisiens will travel away to Brest on Saturday night. PSG still have to play some strong Ligue 1 teams, such as Rennes, Lens and Nice before the end of the season.
Le Parisien reports that PSG will oversee a squad rebuild with free-scoring Kylian Mbappé (24) at the centre of it all. PSG’s all-time goalscorer said he was not that surprised after his team were eliminated from the Champions League in the last 16 stage, saying it was the maximum they could do, implying that PSG have failed to build a squad able to win Europe’s showpiece club competition.
Le Parisien assesses that PSG need at least two defenders, two midfielders and two forwards. But such an overhaul requires budgetary means that financial fair play and PSG’s enormous wage bill do not allow. PSG will also need to sell, or reinstate, their loaned players that were already deemed surplus to requirements.
