Racism scandal about PSG coaches? – WhatsNew2Day


Serious allegations against PSG coach Christophe Galtier. The 56-year-old is said to have racially abused his own players at OGC Nice last season. He is accused of this by his former sports director in an email that was leaked to the French media. Paris Saint-Germain have already responded.

Did PSG coach Christophe Galtier racially insult the OGC Nice players in a personal conversation with his then sporting director Julian Fournier? This serious accusation has been around since Tuesday evening after “RMC Sports” confirmed the authenticity of an email Fournier sent to the club’s owners last year.

In the said email, Fournier claims that Galtier told him that there shouldn’t be “so many blacks and Muslims” on the team. “He said to me: ‘Last night I was in a restaurant and everyone said to me, we have a black team’,” wrote the sporting director, who resigned his post in Nice early and spoke of irreconcilable differences with Galtier at the time.

Galtier is said to have said to him that the OGC Nice team does not match what the people in the city and he personally want. “There were no sporting arguments, only religious and race arguments,” Fournier wrote.

PSG determined against their own coach

As serious as the allegations weigh: “RMC Sports” emphasized after receiving the mail that it was “word against word”. However, those responsible in Paris take the matter very seriously. According to “RMC Sport”, internal investigations were initiated on Wednesday morning. The Parisians initially refrained from making a public statement.

If the allegations are confirmed, Galtier’s immediate dismissal would be unavoidable, it is said. Club boss Nasser Al Khelaïfi assured “RMC Sports” that nothing was known about the incidents when the coach was hired from OGC Nice last summer.

“If that had been known, Galtier would never have been able to sign for PSG. That would have been impossible,” the broadcaster quoted an anonymous source close to Al Khelaïfi as saying.

“If I tell you why we really quarreled…”

Last September, Fournier had already commented in detail on his quarrel with Galtier. Even then, he let it be known that something serious had happened during the months they spent together in Nice.

“If I reveal why we really quarreled, Christophe will never enter a dressing room again. Neither in France nor in Europe. These things hit me deeply. We had very different positions,” Fournier said at the time on the show “After Foot “.
