Handball: Raul Gonzalez, PSG coach, would not be retained next year

What future for Raul Gonzalez? The Spaniard will no longer coach PSG Handball next season, according to L’Equipe. The future of the 52-year-old tactician, at the end of his contract, should be written in another club from next June, after five seasons in the capital. Information that the club, contacted by us, does not confirm.

According to the sports daily, “the leaders would begin a new cycle, in an economic context less favorable than when Gonzalez arrived four years ago. “According to information from Nemzeti Sport, a Hungarian media, Gonzalez would be on the shelves of Pick Szeged, the Hungarian champion. Spaniard Ferran Sole and Latvian giant Dainis Kristopans could also make the trip with their current coach to Paris.

To replace the former Vardar Skopje coach, with whom he won the Champions League in 2017, the French champion would think of his compatriot Xavi Pascual. The 54-year-old Catalan, three-time winner of the European title with Barça, is currently on the bench for Dinamo Bucharest, in the same group as PSG in LdC. The two teams also met barely a month ago, a duel won by the Parisians in Romania.

With Paris, Raul Gonzalez obtained four national championship titles (only 3 defeats in 114 games!), two victories in the Coupe de France and one in the Coupe de la Ligue. His record in the prestigious Champions League is however empty of title, with retained three 3rd place (2018, 2020, 2021).
