While Luis Enrique is announced as the successor to Christophe Galtier on the PSG bench, the decision-makers in Qatar have contacted the German strategist Julian Nagelsmann and imagine offering him Thierry Henry as his assistant!
Champion of France but eliminated in the round of 16 of the Champions League (as well as the Coupe de France), the PSG concluded its laborious season with a 10th defeat when Clermont came to the Parc des Princes on Saturday evening (2-3). Luis Campos, the club’s unofficial sports director, will soon dismiss Christophe Galtier from the coaching position in order to install a new technician on the sidelines.
After the refusal of José Mourinho (in addition to that of Zinédine Zidane), the Portuguese leader seems to have set his sights on Luis Enrique, who would agree to work with him (with the freedom to set up his possession football). Can Qatar once again bypass Campos? Foot-Mercato thus affirms, Sunday, that the decision-makers in Doha discussed with Julian Nagelsmann.
Thierry Henry in the staff?
A month ago, PSG had already contacted the young German strategist, free of any contract after his ousting from Bayern last March, as revealed by independent journalist Abdellah Boulma on April 5. This time, Foot-Mercato adds that the owner of PSG would welcome the arrival of Thierry Henry in the staff of Nagelsmann!
In the absence of “Zizou”, Paris could thus welcome another legend of French football. The former Arsenal striker is now a TV consultant for Prime Video and CBS Sports, following his mixed experiences in charge of Monaco and Montreal. Henry has already held the role of assistant in the Belgian selection at the last two World Cups, he can be an interesting relay for Nagelsmann with Kylian Mbappé and his teammates…
