Ligue 1: PSG reveal final decision on appointing Zidane as new manager

By - - [ Sports ]

Paris Saint-Germain have snubbed the chance to hire former Real Madrid boss, Zinedine Zidane, as their new manager.

The president of the Ligue 1 club, Al-Khelaifi, revealed this in an interview with Le Parisien.

Al-Khelaifi said: “We have decided for another option as new manager – the best option for our tactical idea.”

It is understood that Christophe Galtier will be their new manager.

Galtier, 55, led Nice to a fifth-place finish in Ligue 1 last campaign.

PSG hope to announce his appointment this week, with the two clubs close to an agreement that will see the Parisian side pay £8.6m to buy the manager out of his contract.
