PSG ‘will SACK title-winning manager Christophe Galtier after tonight’s final Ligue 1 game of the season against Clermont’… with Jose Mourinho linked as his potential successor
- PSG will reportedly part ways with Christophe Galtier at the end of the season
- 56-year-old led Les Parisiens to their 11th Ligue 1 title in his first season in charge
- Round of 16 Champions League exit soured the former Lille boss to club chiefs
Christophe Galtier is set to be sacked by PSG after just a single season in charge according to reports.
The former Lille boss signed a two-year deal with Les Parisiens in July, but will not take charge of the club next season according to a report from French publication L’Equipe.
With the league title already secured, PSG play host to Clermont Foot at the Parc des Princes on Saturday night, which will reportedly mark the final time Galtier takes charge of his side.
The decision is said to have been finalised by PSG owner Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, following Galtier’s failure to progress beyond the last 16 of the Champions League.
Galtier enjoyed a perfect start to life in the French capital, with his side going into the winter break undefeated in Ligue 1 with draws against Monaco and Stade Reims the only blemishes on an otherwise perfect record.

56-year-old led the club to a record-breaking 11th Ligue 1 title with a draw against Strasbourg last week
The 56-year-old also guided the club through the Champions League group stage for a last 16 clash with Bayern Munich.
However, results began to suffer following the World Cup, and Galtier’s side endured a run of just one win in four league games in January.
The poor run of form would only continue the following month, as PSG suffered yet another disappointing European exit, losing 3-0 on aggregate to Die Roten and marking the fifth time in the last seven years that the club had been eliminated at the Round of 16 stage.
Despite the disappointing run in the league continuing into February, the side never surrendered their lead atop of Ligue 1, with a 1-1 draw against Strasbourg last week enough to secure a record-breaking eleventh title.
Sportsmail revealed last month that the club were already looking for potential successors to Galtier, with Roma boss Jose Mourinho emerging as a leading candidate to take the role.
The legendary boss has just one year remaining on his current deal at the Stadio Olimpico and may look for a new challenge after his side were defeated by Sevilla in the Europa League final on Wednesday.
