Paris-Saint-Germain coach, Christopher Galtier have been omitted from a 5-man shortlist for the UNFP (Union Nationale des Footballeurs Professionnels) award, the French equivalent of the English PFA.

The former Saint-Étienne, Lille and Nice coach is having a difficult time with the French capital club-side. They have lost nine games in all competitions in 2023, double the number of games they lost in all competitions under Pochettino last year (4).

As a result of PSG’s disappointing result, the Marseille born PSG coach was omitted from the 5-man shortlist that includes Lens’ Franc Haise, Marseille’s Igor Tudor, Clermont’s Pascal Gastien, Lille’s Paulo Fonseca and Toulouse’s Philippe Montanier.

Lens’ coach, Franc Haise is the favourite to be crowned the Ligue 1 coach of the year, with the winner set to be revealed during the Trophées UNFP ceremony on May 28.

With 75 points from 35 games, Les sang et Or are on the verge of qualifying for the Champions League next season. They currently sit second in the Ligue 1 table, six points behind PSG.

“We’re going to have to work hard to finish as high as possible.” Haise said last week. We need to give everything to have a better season than the others.”
