According to Talk Sport, former Liverpool midfielder, Danny Mills believes only a managerial change that involves the hiring of Mourinho or Simeone could make the Parisians become champions of Europe.

“If PSG want to win the Champions League, there are two managers out there that they have to go for. One is Diego Simeone, because I think if you give him the tools for the job defensively, they’ll be so good."

“And the other is Jose Mourinho, because he will build the team for two seasons and he will put together one of the greatest teams ever.”

PSG appointed Christophe Galtier as manager this season, but the Frenchman looks destined to be on his way out after another disappointing Champions League campaign.

Galtier addresses his PSG future

Meanwhile, Galtier has admitted his future may be out of his hands following PSG’s early elimination from the UCL by Bayern Munich, PM News reports.

He blamed defensive errors for the Parisians' loss to the Bavarians, after a 2-0 loss to the Bundesliga titans at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night.

The loss ensured back-to-back last-16 eliminations for PSG, who have played 137 Champions League games without lifting the trophy.

Galtier laments Champions League exit

Sports Brief also reported on PSG coach, Galtier admitting their only option was to accept their latest early Champions League exit and move on.

The Frenchman insisted the outcome of the last-16 tie against Bayern would have been different had the visitors scored first in the second leg.

The Ligue 1 leaders, who were looking to overturn a 1-0 deficit from the first leg, have once again exited the competition in the first knockout round.
