Julien Fournier, Nice’s Sporting Director for the period August 2019 to June 2022, denounces Coach Galtier once complained about having too many black players and muslim competed in Nice. Romain Molina, a French sports investigative journalist, also quoted this information on his personal page.
RMC Sport said that as soon as the incident was made public on social networks, PSG President Al-Khelaifi opened an investigation targeting coach Galtier to find out the truth. If this allegation is true, the PSG captain could be fired immediately.
Last week, President Al-Khelaifi was present at PSG’s training session and chatted with coach Galtier for 10 minutes. The aim of the Qatari businessman is not to panic the players and focus on playing for the rest of the season.
Collectif Ultras Paris, one of PSG’s most passionate local fan clubs, called on the management to fire coach Galtier. In the match against Lyon on April 2, this group also constantly whistled and booed the 56-year-old strategist. In June 2022, PSG had to pay 10 million euros to Nice to welcome coach Galtier to work.
France Football revealed that it is difficult for coach Galtier to keep his seat in the 2023/24 season. Being eliminated in the round of 16 of the Champions League team made him criticized. In addition, this 56-year-old strategist cannot control the dressing room with big egos like Kylian Mbappe, Lionel Messi or Neymar.
In the event that PSG sacks Galtier, Sports Advisor Luis Campos will be one of the people who will decide on the club’s captaincy position in the 2023/24 season. Zinedine Zidane, Luis Enrique or Julian Nagelsmann are potential candidates to sit in the hot seat at PSG.
