Luis Campos expected to work for PSG and Celta Vigo next season
PSG and Celta Vigo sports advisor Luis Campos, who has been splitting his time between both clubs through the season, is expected to extend his stay in both Paris and Vigo next season according to the latest reports.
Spanish media outlet La Voz de Galicia revealed a few weeks ago that Campos' deal with Celta Vigo includes a one-year option that can be executed at the end of this season allowing Celta Vigo to keep him in tow for another year.
Celta Vigo's head coach Carlos Carvalhal, as well as Campos, are expected to be re-signed next summer in order for the Spanish club to retain both for at least one more season even though the results have not been extraordinarily great. That is, at least, what the president of Celta, Carlos Mouriño, would love to accomplish.
Receiving criticism from both PSG and Celta Vigo fanbases, the Portuguese advisor is still highly coveted and valued by both clubs' boards and staff members.
Celta Vigo are in 11th place in the La Liga standings and have lost only two games in their last 14 matches. PSG lead the Ligue 1 and are inching closer to winning a record-breaking title in a few weeks.
Carlos Mouriño spoke to La Voz de Galicia about Luis Campos earlier this week, saying that he "likes long-term projects," before acknowledging that "in football, the results usually don't allow you to do that." The president thinks that retaining Campos would allow Celta "to find stability and take a leap in quality," seemingly based on Campos' decision-making skills and the players he might target and bring to Celta.
The Spanish club will trigger the option on Campos' deal, forcing him to stay at Celta one more year. Carlos Mouriño would like to continue with Luis Campos, but also his recently-signed manager Carlos Carvalhal.
Campos is already working on the recruitment of players for Celta Vigo and also dealing with the contract situation of some of those already under contract in order to build a better squad ahead of next season.
