Luis Enrique, the former manager of Spain and Barcelona, has been appointed as the head coach of Paris St-Germain, replacing Christophe Galtier, who was dismissed despite winning the Ligue 1 title in his first season. The 53-year-old Spaniard has signed a two-year contract with the French champions.
This is his first coaching role since he resigned as Spain’s manager in December following their defeat by Morocco in the 2022 World Cup round of 16. Previously, he had a successful tenure at Barcelona, winning nine trophies in three seasons, including a remarkable treble in his debut campaign. In 2018, he took over as Spain’s manager and guided the team to the final of the Nations League and the semi-finals of the European Championships in 2021. However, he stepped down after Spain’s elimination in the Qatar World Cup. Now, Luis Enrique assumes the responsibility of leading PSG, who are currently undergoing a period of transition.
