Jordan Galtier, the son of departing PSG coach Christophe Galtier, has been appointed Toulouse FC assistant coach, the club has announced. The 34-year-old assistant coach will join the staff of newly-appointed Toulouse manager Carles Martinez Novell. The Spaniard replaced Philippe Montanier two weeks ago. Jordan Galtier previously worked at AC Ajaccio where he was the U17 and U19 teams’ coach. He was then Ajaccio boss Olivier Pantaloni’s assistant for two seasons, from 2021 to 2023. The Corsican team, who finished 18th last season and could not avoid a Ligue 2 relegation, have agreed to release Galtier in order to allow him to join Toulouse.
It is a busy summer for Toulouse FC. The Garonne club has decided to overhaul his coaching department with the dismissal of Montanier. Besides, the 2023 Coupe de France winners are in talks with UEFA regarding their participation in the Europa League next season. The club’s owners, RedBird Capital Partners, are the majority shareholder of AC Milan. UEFA rules state that two clubs owned by the same entity cannot be guaranteed an entry in this particular combination of continental competitions, even if Toulouse are due to play the Europa League and Milan the Champions League.
