PSG Sacks Galtier, Appoints Luis Enrique As New Manager

French Ligue 1 Champions, PSG have appointed Luis Enrique as their new head coach after relieving Christophe Galtier of his duties.

The Paris-based club looked at a number of candidates to replace Galtier, who was sacked Wednesday – including Julian Nagelsmann, but settled upon former Barcelona and Spain gaffer.

Club president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi said Luis Enrique’s arrival will mark the start of a “new cycle, with a new style of play”.

He takes over at PSG during a turbulent time for the club which has seen Lionel Messi and Sergio Ramos have departed this summer, while Kylian Mbappe has confirmed he intends to leave on a free transfer next year.

“The attacking identity is non-negotiable — it’s my philosophy,” Luis Enrique said during his presentation on Wednesday. “You have to adapt to your players, my job is to get the best out of my players individually and collectively.”

“I am committed to putting a winning team together and I have no doubt that I will be able to do that and give PSG fans something they will like”. He said.
