The Parisians retained their league title with a draw against Strasbourg.

Christophe Galtier has insisted he deserves to stay as Paris Saint-Germain’s manager next season.

The Parisians won their ninth Ligue 1 title in 11 seasons with a 1-1 draw against Strasbourg on Saturday. However, the domestic trophy won’t satisfy expectations from Galtier’s star-studded squad.

PSG struggled for consistency during the second half of the season, with Bayern Munich knocking them out of the Champions League in the last-16 round.

As the club prepares for another busy transfer window, reports about Galtier’s possible sacking are intensifying. Speaking after his side’s title-winning match, the French manager said: “I deserve a second season at Paris Saint-Germain!

“I repeat it once again because no one wants to hear it but it was a very special season. We had to stay the course even when we thought everyone had their heads under water. I pay tribute to my players who have not given up. I am very happy and I don’t want us to trivialize [this title win]!”

PSG are reportedly considering a move for Luis Enrique as Galtier’s replacement. The former Barcelona and Spain manager is available after rejecting Tottenham’s offer earlier this season.

PSG will play their last match of the season against Clermont Foot next Saturday.
