This Friday, the Zinedine Zidane hypothesis at PSG came back to the fore. If the arrival of Zizou on the Parisian bench is Doha’s dream, Luis Campos continues to push for his choice of coach: Christophe Galtier.
Who will be the man called to lead PSG and its stars, Kylian Mbappé, Neymar or even Lionel Messi? While many names have been cited to replace the very threatened Mauricio Pochettino, two coaches seem to have a head start on the others for the press. They are Zinedine Zidane and Christophe Galtier. As the days go by, the balance tilts in one direction and then in the other. This Friday, the trend was clearly for Zinedine Zidane. Europe 1 even announced that a verbal agreement had been found between the former number 10 of the Blues and the Parisian leaders.
Doha wants Zidane but Campos votes for Galtier
Bringing Zidane to PSG has been an old dream of Doha for several years. However, this is not really the wish of Luis Campos. This is problematic when we know that the Portuguese was officially appointed sports adviser to the Parisian club during the day. The one who had built the strategy at AS Monaco then at LOSC, intends to do the same in Paris. He wants to think about recruitment in full consultation with the future coach…Christophe Galtier.

Indeed, linked to the Nice coach since their Lille collaboration, Campos is working to put him on the PSG bench next season as revealed Foot Mercato. He has already convinced Galtier to join the Parisian project and anticipates the arrival of players according to the wishes of the 55-year-old coach. A dilemma already arises at PSG. Doha wants Zidane, Campos wants Galtier. The arrival of Zizou would be an affront to Campos, who loves freedom in strategy and who has been given carte blanche for recruitment. Associating Zidane and Campos is perhaps creating a first major problem in the new PSG version 2022-2023.
