Celta Vigo frustrated by Luis Campos behaviour

Luis Campos, an external advisor of Celta de Vigo as well as PSG sporting director, continues to stir controversy with his frequent absences from the Spanish club affairs, further aggravating the concerns of Celta's management.

Last Friday, during Celta's match against Athletic Club, Campos opted instead to attend a conference at the Sorbonne while he was expected to attend the game in Spain by Celta's brass. That, reportedly, has intensified pressure from both supporters and the club's leadership who are starting to see Campos as a careless employee.

While enjoying support at PSG from Nasser Al-Khelaifi and Luis Enrique, Luis Campos has faced tough challenges at Celta de Vigo, where the team languishes at the bottom of La Liga with just seven points on 13 matches.

The precarious situation of Celta has prompted questions about Campos' role in the club's strategic planning, how it's simply not working, and ultimately if he's doing enough to help the Spanish club in the role he holds at the organization.

Recent reports have suggested Campos' apparent preference for PSG over the Spanish club, which would be obvious nonetheless considering the status of both clubs in the football landscape.

Campos last attended a Celta de Vigo match two weeks ago (Celta de Vigo vs. Girona), arriving just in time for kickoff and promptly leaving for Paris immediately after the final whistle.

Paradoxically, despite their dissatisfaction, Celta de Vigo reportedly plans to entrust Campos with responsibilities for the upcoming winter transfer window—a critical period for the Spanish club's survival in La Liga.

However, this decision comes amid growing discontent with both the team's on-field performance and the management's seeming uncertainty. Perhaps a failure in landing the proper players or saving the season by the end of next May brings an end to Campos' tenure in Spain.
