Xabi Alonso Linked to PSG Managerial Role : Christophe Galtier should no longer coach PSG next season. If several names to replace him are mentioned, three stand out : José Mourinho, Thiago Motta and more recently Xabi Alonso, the coach of Bayer Leverkusen.
The track was activated from Doha. Bringing it to fruition will not be an easy task.
The PSG coach has often been chosen by the Emir of Qatar and his advisers since the takeover of the club by QSI in 2011. These same protagonists should have the last word once again. Recently, a name has emerged: that of Xabi Alonso, the coach of the German club Bayer Leverkusen.
The profile may surprise, he is young (41 years old), has not yet won a trophy, he who has passed through the benches of the youth teams of Real Madrid and the reserve of Real Sociedad.
However, his rise in the standings with Bayer Leverkusen (from 17th place to 6th currently), but also his style of play, speak for him. The former Real Madrid midfielder is very popular with his players, to whom he is close, which does not spoil anything.
Initial contacts have been initiated but PSG will come up against two obstacles: the Spaniard’s desire to take over from Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid when the Italian leaves his post.
The second brake lies in the fact that his current club ardently wishes to extend it and as quickly as possible, while his name has also circulated in Tottenham.
The double winner of the Champions League as a player recently confided that he was “happy” in Leverkusen and that he was not worried about his future.
Luis Campos should be involved in the decision-making process
Already very active on the transfer market with more or less advanced tracks (Manuel Ugarte, Bernardo Silva, Lucas Hernandez, Victor Osimhen), Luis Campos, who will be in charge of the sportsman next season, is closely following the evolution of the file. of the coach.
The Portuguese has his favourites. José Mourinho keeps a place of choice as explained by RMC Sport. The Europa League finalist is still as motivated to join the capital club.
For the moment, he has not received a concrete offer, but he is ready. Not all components of the club are aligned with its profile. Luis Campos remains open. The club’s sports adviser is not closed to the track leading to Xabi Alonso even though he knows that it will be difficult to make it happen.
The other credible candidate is called Thiago Motta. Popular in Doha, where some believe he will one day coach PSG, the Italian is held in high esteem by President Nasser Al Khelaifi.
But is it cut out for this project?
The question comes up every time his name is mentioned. Relations between Nasser al-Khelaïfi and Luis Campos are said to have warmed up. That might help smooth things over. Christophe Galtier no longer has a lot of internal support. If he is still as combative and more smiling in recent days, his fate seems sealed.
