PSG manager Christophe Galtier taken under Police custody for racial discrimination charges amid Luis Enrique speculation

Last season saw Mauricio Pochettino passed on the baton of Head Coach to Christophe Galtier, with the Argentine being the latest to help PSG win the elusive Champions League trophy. Well, it is fair to say PSG had an underwhelming Champions League campaign yet again under the Argentine’s watch. Manners aggravate, as the PSG manager is been taken under Police custody and PSG looks to restructure their squad with the probable arrival of Luis Enrique. 

Outbound PSG manager arrested for racial discrimination fiasco

The 56-year-old manager was taken into police custody amid the allegations of racial discrimination. The Argentine manager is accused of making racist and Islamophobic comments during his stint as the Nice manager in 2021-22. The police have also interviewed players and figures of Nice’s hierarchy. The allegations were bought to light when Julian Fournier revealed an alleged leaked email.

Although there have been no comments from the Argentine coach himself, his legal representatives released a statement which saidChristophe Galtier was amazed to learn of the insulting and defamatory remarks of Mr. Julien Fournier against him. Given the seriousness of the charges against him, which he disputes with the greatest firmness, Christophe Galtier immediately seized his lawyer to initiate, without delay, the necessary legal proceedings which are necessary.

Former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique set to finalize PSG hot seat

The Spanish fans had to travel back from Qatar with gloomy faces after their national team crashed out of the World Cup by getting beaten by Morocco in the round of 16. After the World Cup disappointment, Luis Enrique made the difficult decision to step down from his role as Spain’s manager. Several reports suggest, in just a few months, the Spanish manager is set to be seen back in the dugout.

The former Barcelona manager is going to be the latest one to try and help PSG reach greater heights. During his stint with FC Barcelona, the Spaniard lifted nine trophies which included two La Liga titles and a Champions League trophy. Several reports suggest PSG are going to tie the Spanish manager into a two-year contract. 


With the unclear situation of Christopher Galtier, PSG is looking for an early termination of the Argentine’s contract to enable the arrival of Luis Enrique. With less than a month and a half left for the season to start, Luis Enrique has a lot of pressure on his shoulders. Furthermore, the looming departure of Kylian Mbappe remains an ongoing concern and offers no help to the Spaniard’s prospects.
