They are 20 on the starting line. 20 Ligue 1 coaches with different objectives but similar pressure: that of the result. In contexts that are sometimes already tense, who will be the technicians to fall first? Overview of the most fragile positions for this 2022-2023 Ligue 1 season.
During the 2021-2022 financial year, Claude Puel fell first. ASSE decided to end its collaboration with the French technician following long months of tension, to finally replace him with Pascal Dupraz on December 21, 2021. Nico Kovacs (AS Monaco), Lawrence Battles (Troyes) and vladimir Petkovic (Bordeaux) were also dismissed following poor results or disagreements with their management. These five departures are in the average of recent seasons, Ligue 1 having become more and more demanding in terms of result. And this will be even more the case with the 2022-2023 version since the last four teams will go to Ligue 2, with no possible play-off. The tension will therefore be greater and the coaches even more under pressure.
Bosz already in danger
After taking over OL last season, To fart Bosch obtained several credits from its leaders. If the Dutch technician had the objective of qualifying Les Gones in Champions League, he failed. However, he was kept in office. If he seems to have the full confidence of the leaders, this balance seems fragile. Even more so with the arrival of new shareholders like John textor and after sometimes worrying preparation matches (defeat against Anderlecht 3-0 and 5-0 against Willem II). If he does not make a successful start to the season, To fart Bosch will clearly be suspended. OL must quickly grab the lead car and stay in the wheels of those who will compete for the title. Otherwise, it will be the first fuse, that’s for sure.
Tudor, leap into the unknown
He is the coach of whom we know the least and from whom we certainly expect the most. After Jorge Sampaoli, OM dreams of finding a coach with so much character and results. igor You sleep therefore has the heavy task of making the Argentinian forget while taking a Marseille team to the Champions League, two years after the fiasco of 2020 (4 games, 4 losses, 0 goal scored). Inexperienced on the European scene, Tudor will have to be solid if the crisis takes hold in the fall. In a still boiling Marseille context, he will have to have the shoulders to withstand the pressure.
Galtier will have no room for error
Surprise guest of the Paris transfer window, Christopher Galtier took the place of Mauricio Pochettino. Champion of France with the LOSC, he failed to take Nice to the podium despite a great first part of the season. Today at the helm of the prestigious Paris Saint Germain, the Frenchman is expected at the turn. Manage stars, shine in the Champions League, crush Ligue 1: Galtier will have no room for error. And as a bonus, he will have to make Mbappé play the band well, which has been lacking in Paris in recent seasons. The skeptics are already present, those who wanted a technician of international stature like Zinedine Zidane. Luis Fields chose Christopher Galtier, certain of his ability to come and offer PSG its first Champions League. The results will speak for themselves…
💥 Galtier: “I am discovering this extraordinary group. The group works very well. If you have no ego, you have no champions. And without champions, you don’t win. From what I’ve seen for two weeks, the group lives well and laughs well together. » pic.twitter.com/pXvu7zyJYy

Troyes is already thinking about it?
Just maintained in Ligue 1 last season, ESTAC has chosen to maintain its confidence in Bruno Irles. But behind the scenes, the Trojan club will already be preparing the rest, in the perspective where the results would not follow. Foot Mercato thus reveals that the profile of Stephane Dumont, current coach of Guingamp, pleases the Trojans. Whether Bruno Irles comes to leave, the technician of the Bretons would be in the first line. Even before the start of the season, it promises…
The prognosis of memosport.fr
To fart Bosch will be the first coach dismissed from his position this season…
