Luis Enrique will be presented as Paris Saint-Germain’s new head coach with the departure of Christophe Galtier to be announced imminently, sources told ESPN on Tuesday.
It was reported on June 6 that PSG sporting director Luis Campos had informed Galtier he would be fired, and the two parties have spent recent weeks in talks over the termination of the manager’s contract.
Galtier has been summoned to criminal court on Dec. 15 as part of an investigation into racism allegations at his former club Nice.
PSG is expected to present Luis Enrique as the club’s new coach in a news conference on Wednesday, it was further gathered
PSG reached a full contract agreement with Luis Enrique earlier this week and he started working on the squad, recruitments and preparation. However, the French club was waiting until a contractual termination agreement was reached with Galtier first before making the announcement public.
The former Spain and Barcelona coach had expressed interest earlier this year in managing in the Premier League. He has been out of a job since leaving Spain after their elimination from the 2022 World Cup.
