In a surprising turn of events, Julian Nagelsmann’s anticipated appointment as the next manager of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) has been called off, as reported by L’Equipe.
The German coach and PSG were engaged in talks for several weeks, but on Friday, both parties decided against the move.
Nagelsmann was believed to be the preferred choice of the Qatari ownership to succeed Christophe Galtier. However, with Nagelsmann out of the picture, PSG is now exploring other options to fill the managerial position.
Initial reports had suggested that PSG had targeted Nagelsmann to lead the team, with Thierry Henry as his assistant coach. However, Henry withdrew from the deal, and Nagelsmann’s former assistant coach, Dino Toppmöller, has been appointed as the head coach of Eintracht Frankfurt.
According to L’Equipe, PSG is currently in talks with a Plan B candidate, whose identity has yet to be disclosed. The club aims to finalize the appointment and announce their new coach next week.
The unexpected turn of events has left PSG fans and football pundits speculating about the reasons behind Nagelsmann’s withdrawal. While the exact details remain undisclosed, it is clear that the club is actively exploring other possibilities to fill the managerial void.
The decision on the next PSG manager will be crucial in shaping the team’s future and aspirations for silverware. All eyes are now on Paris Saint-Germain as they navigate the managerial market to find the ideal candidate who can lead them to glory in the upcoming season.
