St. Etienne captain Loic Perrin doesn’t know whether his head coach Christophe Galtier will be at the club next season.
Christophe Galtier – over five years at St. Etienne
St. Etienne are 4th top of the French League but are now 7 points behind 3rd placed PSG after they have lost their last two games 1-0 – at home to PSG on January 26th and at Caen on Sunday.
It’s interesting that Frank de Boer’s Ajax have also lost their last two Dutch League games 1-0.
St. Etienne are now 9 points behind top of the table Lyon.
Galtier has been with the head coach position at Newcastle, but has said very little about it other than he will be at his current club through the ed of the season.
Club captain Perrin does not know if his head coach will remain at St. Etienne for next season:
“I do not know if he will still be there next season,” “I think it depends on results, ambitions, maybe offers.”
“Given the fact that he has done a good job it would not surprise me if he is approached.” “But then, he’s good here.”
The Marseilles born 48 year-old Galtier has been at St. Etienne since 2009, and has done an excellent job with little money available at the French club, but he has managed to get the very best out of the players he has available.
That’s a top requirement at Newcastle, since he will not be much involved with players being brought into the club and those who are sold.
But that’s no different than his current situation at St. Etienne.
Christophe would seem to be a good choice for the Newcastle head coach position in the summer, and certainly better than the two current favorites Steve McClaren (6/4) of Derby County and caretaker manager John Carver (3/1).
Galtier is currently down the list at 20/1 in 10th place in the betting on SkyBet.
