Luis Campos lands at PSG

Publish on 10/06/2022 at 10:00


Transfer wizard Luis Campos - seen by many as a key figure in Monaco and LOSC's recent league wins - has signed on with PSG, and will serve as Football Advisor for the senior team, in charge of 'organisation, recruitment and performance'.

Ever since the momentous announcement that Kylian Mbappé had jilted Real Madrid and opted to sign a three-year big-money contract extension, the footballing world has been waiting with bated breath to see what developments would be at the capital club, where it was generally believed that Mbappé had certain requests/demands baked into his new deal.

And now the first big change - the arrival of Portuguese transfer mage Luis Campos, who built both of the only two teams that have challenged Paris Saint-Germain's Ligue 1 Uber Eats supremacy in the Qatari era - Monaco (2017) and and LOSC (2021).

Campos, 57, replaces outgoing Brazilian Sporting Director Leonardo, but won't fulfil the exact same functions as the Brazilian. According to the club's communiqué, Campos will be "football advisor" who is "in charge of organisation, recruitment and performance" of Mbappé's side with the aim of "taking it to the next level".  

'Cannot wait to get started'

Many believe that this will involve the shedding of a number of players such that Campos can build a new-look side around Mbappé - with whom he worked at Monaco - and the man of the hour sounded ready to roll in his new job when talking to club media for the press release.

"I am delighted to be joining Paris Saint-Germain, which I consider is the most ambitious and exciting club in world football," said Campos upon putting pen to paper. "I believe strongly in and share the vision of the Club and I cannot wait to get started to further unleash the great potential of this exceptional Club."
