WHAT THEY SAID: Speaking to Europe 1 Sport, Villeneuve said, "If you want a hysterical coach, there is no problem taking Mourinho given the mess at the moment.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: There have been doubts over Galtier's future at the club after PSG's poor performances this season. They were knocked out of the French Cup and Champions League but are on course to win the Ligue 1 title.

Despite all the rumours of him leaving the club, Galtier claimed that he has no plans of going out before his contract expires in 2024 and that he has already spoken to the director of football regarding the changes that the squad needs during the summer transfer window.
