Looking for a new coach for next season, PSG are thinking of José Mourinho, failing to be able to attract Zinédine Zidane, but would have made Thiago Motta their number 1 lead.
THE PSG are already actively preparing for next season. While he hopes the departure of Lionel Messi (or even Neymar), Luis Campos, the unofficial sports director of the Parisian club (officially sports advisor) is working on the next summer transfer window as well as on the name of the future coach. The days of Christophe Galtier at the head of the Rouge et Bleu are indeed numbered.
If Zinédine Zidane remains the ultimate dream of the Emir of Qatar, the Portuguese leader has obviously worked on two other tracks. His compatriot José Mourinho, with whom he worked 10 years ago at Real Madrid, is considered. The immense experience of the “Special One” could be beneficial for Paris Saint-Germain, even if no one knows if his management can suit the team led by Kylian Mbappe.
Motta number 1 according to Riolo
Another name comes up insistently in the media, that of Thiago Motta. The former PSG defensive midfielder, now 40, has been in charge of Bologna since last summer, having captained PSG U19s Genoa and La Spezia. His profile as a tactician and young leader of men is appreciated by Luis Campos and Nasser Al Khelaïfi. Daniel Riolo, Tuesday evening on RMC, estimated that the Italian-Brazilian was number 1 on the shortlist!
Campos has a meeting in Doha in the coming days with the owners of PSG to discuss the terrible “Galtier affair” and the replacement of the French champion coach with Lille in 2021. It will then be a question of handing over the reins of the Parisian team to a coach who has won 5 European Cups (Mourinho) or to a coach with no title track record (Motta). Is it already the final duel?
