Prêcheur and PSG have reportedly mutually agreed to end their collaboration, although Division 1’s 2023-24 season had barely begun and despite being on the verge of facing serial league champions Olympique Lyonnais this Sunday night at the Parc des Princes. Both outlets understand that assistant coach Jocelyn Prêcheur will follow in the footsteps of his father and replace him as PSG Women’s manager.
Le Parisien adds that PSG Women’s U19 manager Paulo César will link up with Jocelyn Précheur’s staff as an assistant coach. Last season, Gérard Prêcheur was not adamant he wanted to carry on as PSG manager, mentioning the need for the Division 1 side to bring guarantees in order to build a great club. “Being competitive is not enough. I want to finish my career with a desire to win“, Prêcheur said.
Le Parisien understands that France international Kadidiatou Diani’s departure to arch-rivals Lyon played a part in Prêcheur’s decision to leave. Prêcheur also reportedly had numerous disagreements with PSG Women’s Sporting Director Angelo Castellazzi and Deputy Sporting Director Sabrina Delannoy.
