Luis Campos wants a famous Portuguese managing PSG
What a turn of events! Luis Campos, the sporting advisor of PSG is feeling the heat on his seat and has decided to take the shortcut to salvage his position by making a surprising call to a Portuguese friend in case Christophe Galtier gets fired before the season ends or by June.
Jose Mourinho, currently managing Italy side AS Roma, is the man identified by Luis Campos as the one to save his life at PSG, according to a report published on Friday by Santi Aouna of FootMercato.
Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the president of PSG, is convinced changes needed to be made in order for his club to start getting better results. Luis Campos, clearly in the known of the plans of the president, has "contacted Jose Mourinho for a possible future collaboration" at PSG, according to Aouna.
According to the information gathered by Aouna, "recent contacts have taken place between Luis Campos and Jose Mourinho." The reporterd adds that "Mourinho and PSG have a long history of missed appointments," saying that the Portuguese manager "represents a credible alternative in the eyes of Luis Campos, who appreciates him, and Doha, who has never hidden his admiration for the coach."
In any case, the favorite option by the Emir of Qatar would be Zinedine Zidane, while there are also whispers speaking of a potential return of former PSG manager Thomas Tuchel to the French capital if Zidane rejects the Parisian offer.
Aouna thinks that "Galtier seems to be reaching his limits in the management of the stars of PSG" while comparing him with Jose Mourinho, who "has proven during his career that he was not afraid to impose himself."
The relationship between Campos and Mourinho is "good," according to Aouna, who adds that "Tottenham thought of giving Campos a position when Mourinho managed the London club."
Most importantly, though, Aouna makes clear that there has been "no contact between PSG and AS Roma" made official at this point. That makes sense, considering Mourinho is under contract with the Italian side until the end of the 2023-24 season, although Aouna also informs of a "cordial relationship" between Nasser Al-Khelaifi and Dan Friedkin, the American owner of Roma, which could make the move easier to the eyes of the reporter.
