In the quest for Pochettino’s successor, Christophe Galtier still appears to be the big favorite against the now famous mystery candidate whose name still does not filter. France Bleu Paris, however, provides a clarification: Galtier is the name of Campos, the other candidate is proposed by Qatar.
Mauricio Pochettino is still officially the coach of PSG and his succession would now come down to a struggle between two names, one of which is clearly identified as that of Christophe Galtier (Nice). The newspaper Le Parisien had unveiled this final duel a few days ago, RMC has also recently joined this trend and France Bleu also agrees on this choice to be made between two technicians, with several interesting details.
First of all the confirmation that Christophe Galtier is a name pushed by the new sporting director Luis Campos, even his priority. The former manager of Lille proposed the name of his ex-coach in the north to the president of PSG Nasser Al-Khelaïfi and it is the Parisian president who will decide on this file. But according to the latest news, it is Galtier who holds the rope to take over from Pochettino, even if no negotiations have been started with OGC Nice where he is under contract until 2024.
But it is on the side of the famous mystery candidate facing Galtier that we learn the most. The name is still as well guarded, since it would have hardly been pronounced by the press according to recent echoes, and Bruno Salomon of France Bleu adds in particular a precision: it is a name pushed by Doha, therefore directly by the Qatari leaders, hence the great vagueness around this candidate for the succession to Pochettino whose identity does not filter.
When it comes to imagining the future of PSG in Qatar, it is often the name of Zinédine Zidane that stands out and the Spanish press announced earlier this week that Zidane was going to Qatar in the hours to come. No one saw him there, but the main interested party has, on the other hand, been very present in Ibiza since Tuesday evening (at least with his family, a presence that he does not hide on his social networks.
