Christophe Galtier, appointed PSG manager, replaces Mauricio Pochettino

PARIS (AP) — Christophe Galtier became Paris Saint-Germain’s seventh coach in 11 years of Qatar-backed ownership after Mauricio Pochettino was fired on Tuesday.

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi introduced Galtier to the media at a press conference and said: “We are facing a new era, a new atmosphere, new goals.”

Galtier said he felt “emotional” and “proud” to take on a two-year contract.

“We have to work the right way to make people happy,” Galtier said. “I’m prepared. If I accepted this job and this responsibility, it is because I am capable of it.

Galtier has said there will be no services for star players who have long been seen as over-indulged at PSG.
