Christophe Galtier said it is too early to talk about his future as Paris Saint-Germain manager after the French club’s elimination from the Champions League.
Bayern Munich knocked Paris Saint-Germain out of the Champions League with a 3-0 aggregate win in the round of 16. Bayern Munich, who had secured a 1-0 win in the first leg, cruised to a 2-0 victory in the second leg to dump PSG out of the competition.
An exit from the Champions League in the round of 16 stage is a disappointing result for a side as star-studded as Paris Saint-Germain. Despite their dominance in Ligue 1, European success has once again eluded PSG.
PSG have also already been knocked out of the French Cup, and now, following their elimination from UCL, Ligue 1 remains the only competition they remain in contention for the title.

PSG’s elimination from the Champions League will understandably raise questions about the future of Christophe Galtier. Their premature elimination from Europe’s premier club football competition could end up costing Galtier his job as the PSG manager.
Speaking after PSG’s defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League round of 16 second leg, Christophe Galtier said it is too early to talk about his future.
Christophe Galtier admitted that his future depends on PSG management and the club president. He also said he is focused on seeing out the 22/23 campaign with PSG.
“It’s really too early to talk about it. My future obviously depends on my sports management and my president. There is a disappointment, that’s how it is,” Christophe Galtier said.
“The club pinned a lot of hopes on this competition. I’m staying the course, I’m still focused on the end of the season with a lot of energy and determination.”
Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain will now turn their attention to Ligue 1, where they are the defending champions. PSG enjoys an eight-point lead at the top of the Ligue 1 table.
PSG have 63 points from 26 matches in Ligue 1 so far in the 22/23 campaign. Second-placed Marseille have so far earned 55 points. Paris Saint-Germain will take on Brest in a Ligue 1 fixture in their next game.
