New details of Antero Henrique's future in PSG organization emerge
Nasser Al-Khelaifi, speaking for L'Equipe last Saturday, revealed unknown information about his relationship with PSG consultant Antero Henrique, sporting director Luis Campos, and the roles both have taken on and will have in the Parisian organigram starting next January.
Portuguese outlet O Jogo joined the conversation on Monday, revealing some new details about Henrique's job at PSG going forward and the tasks he'll be expected to complete.
First and foremos, as already made public by PSG president Al-Khelaifi, Henrique won't have anything to do with actual Paris Saint-Germain operations and affairs from January 2023 on.
Henrique, who returned to PSG last summer in a consultant role, had taken on the duty of finding buy clubs for unwanted players by the PSG staff and head coach Christophe Galtier. He won't do so at PSG anymore.
According to Al-Khelaifi, "Henrique will no longer manage first-team issues." Instead, Henrique is getting moved to a less role, in particular one at Portuguese club Braga.
Nasser Al-Khelaifi is moving Antero Henrique to the last team acquired by QSI, Portugal's top-flight Braga
QSI recently acquired a 21.67 percent capital of the Portugal first-division team Braga. Henrique will move to the Iberian country to operate along with Braga's board starting next calendar year. The deal between QSI and Braga was completed in early October after a year of negotiations.
The president of PSG revealed "there were problems between Antero Henrique and Luis Campos" in his interview with L'Equipe. Al-Khelaifi said that he's breaking that relationship because "each of them interfered in the work of the other," forcing him to ultimately move Henrique away from PSG.
The functions Henrique will have in Braga are yet to be unveiled. As has been the case in his recent professional career, though, Henrique is expected to have a role and a voice dealing with the transfer part of Braga's organization, now partly owned by PSG (by the way of QSI).
Braga, despite Al-Khelaifi's public announcement of Henrique's move to Portugal, have not made any official comment about the story.
Braga is now owned by a four-way investor body made of QSI (21.67%), along with Sundown Investments (16.69%), the own club (36.98%), and other shareholders (24.76%).
