Christophe Galtier has been named on Tuesday the new coach of Qatari-owned French champions Paris Saint-Germain.

The 55-year-old Frenchman quit as coach of Nice in June and replaces Mauricio Pochettino, who was released from his duties earlier on Tuesday.

Galtier -- who guided Lille to the Ligue 1 title in 2021 -- is PSG's seventh coach since the Qataris bought the club 11 years ago and will be expected to finally lift the Champions League trophy.
