As expected, the coach of the women’s section of PSG, Olivier Echouafni, officially left office on Thursday. He had allowed the club to win its first title of champion of France last week.
Olivier Echouafni leaves Paris Saint-Germain with his head held high, crowned with a historic title of champion of France. A few days after bringing down OL, winner of the last 14 championships, the Parisian coach leaves the capital after 92 games and three seasons on the bench of the Parisian club, as announced in a press release.
“I thank the exceptional group of players without whom this feat would never have been possible”
“It is a great pride to have written such an important page in the history of this glorious club, tells the coach on the PSG website. I thank President Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the leaders, the various staffs, the supporters and, of course, the exceptional group of players without whom this feat would never have been possible. I wish Paris Saint-Germain the best in the years to come. “
Two Champions League semi-finals before the title
In addition to this historic title, Paris Saint-Germain will have reached two new Champions League semi-finals under Echouafni as well as a Coupe de France final, lost in 2020 to the Lyonnaises on penalties. But after eight second places over the last ten seasons, PSG finally achieved its first goal last Friday by winning the D1 Arkéma.
“I would like to thank Olivier Echouafni for his involvement and his work these last three seasons, reacts the Parisian president Nasser Al-Khelaïfi. He allowed the club to win its first title of Champion of France at the end of a very disputed season, which marked the 50th anniversary of the club’s women’s section. I wish her the best for the future “.
