PSG New Coach: In, Luis Enrique; Out, Galtier

There’s a storm brewing in the Ligue 1 world: PSG New Coach announcement has hit the headlines. It’s none other than Luis Enrique taking the reins at Paris St Germain for the next two years, following a mutual decision to part ways with the previous coach, Christophe Galtier.

Who Is Luis Enrique?

Luis Enrique Martínez García, familiarly known as Luis Enrique, has taken the helm of the Paris Saint Germain (PSG) football team. This makes him the eighth coach to manage the Ligue 1 team since the Qatari consortium took over in 2011.

Luis Enrique, at 53 years of age, had been unaffiliated since his dismissal as the coach of Spain in December last year. He’s what you would call a titan. He led Barcelona to a tremendous treble victory in the 2014-15 La Liga season and coached Spain to the semi-finals of the 2020 European Championship. His journey with Spain ended after they were knocked out of the 2022 World Cup in the last-16.

Now, with a two-year contract under his belt, Luis Enrique is entrusted as the new PSG coach with the duty of securing the elusive Champions League success for the French champions, a feat that his predecessors couldn’t accomplish.

Galtier’s Exit

On the other hand, we bid farewell to Christophe Galtier. He might have been shown the door, but remember, this guy led PSG to an unprecedented 11th Ligue 1 title in his debut season. His departure comes on the heels of a 1-1 draw with Strasbourg, a game that solidified PSG’s lead at the top of the table, thanks to Lionel Messi’s goal.

The Club’s Official Statement

According to the club’s official statement, PSG made the decision to end Galtier’s contract at the end of the 2022-2023 Ligue 1 season. The club recognized his professionalism and commitment, praising him for helping the team secure a historic eleventh French Championship title and a Trophee des Champions. They also proffered a big salute to Galtier, and his assistants, Thierry Oleksiak and Joao Sacramento, for their dedication throughout the season. Good luck, guys!

The Future of PSG Coaching
