Once tipped to replace Christophe Galtier at PSG, Thiago Motta has seen his rating skyrocket this season. The leaders of the capital club could make him Luis Enrique's successor in the medium or long term.

Arriving on the Bologna sidelines in September 2022, Thiago Motta is currently having an exceptional season. His men are virtually qualified for the Champions League since they occupy fourth place in Serie A, after 29 contested days. His rating continues to rise and the former midfielder should have no shortage of suitors in the coming months.

Last season, PSG leaders considered him to replace Christophe Galtier. Ultimately, Luis Enrique was chosen, but Motta's name could resurface in the future with the Rouge et Bleu. “I don’t know when it will happen but it is in any case clearly Thiago Motta’s desire to come to PSG, a club which had a profound impact on him when he was a player,” indicates Pierre Ménès in a video broadcast on his YouTube channel.

A destiny all mapped out

Thiago Motta took his first steps as a coach in the summer of 2018, taking care of PSG's under-19s. “It doesn't surprise me for a second that such a player became a great coach. I hope to see him one day on the PSG bench. We must not forget that when he was coach of the reserves, Antero Henrique constantly put obstacles in his way. recalls the sports journalist.

“PSG is my home. This is where I stayed the longest. I have won many titles there as a player, my ambition is to win others, including the C1, with this club as coach”warned the former midfielder when he left his post as U19 coach at PSG in June 2019.
