Football News Update: Jocelyn Prêcheur Linked to London City Lionesses Managerial Role

In a potential major move for the Women’s Championship club, Paris Saint-Germain’s head coach, Jocelyn Prêcheur, is in advanced talks to join London City Lionesses. The 42-year-old Frenchman, who has been in charge at PSG since September 2023, is set to leave the club when his contract expires this summer.

Multiple sources have confirmed that discussions between Prêcheur and London City have reached an advanced stage, with the club’s owner, Michele Kang, being a huge admirer of the manager. Kang, who also owns Lyon and Washington Spirit, has set her sights on guiding London City to promotion to the Women’s Super League.

Prêcheur Jr, who previously worked as an assistant to his father, Gerard Prêcheur, at Lyon, won the French Cup with PSG last season and led them to the semi-finals of the UEFA Women’s Champions League, where they were eliminated by eventual champions Lyon.

The potential move to London City would represent a significant coup for the Championship club, as Prêcheur is highly regarded in the women’s game. He has also previously worked in China as the head coach of Jiangsu Suning Ladies FC, where he won four trophies between 2019 and 2022.

The news comes as the football world prepares for a busy summer, with the UEFA Euro 2024 qualifiers, the Champions League final, and the FIFA Women’s World Cup all on the horizon. Meanwhile, the Africa Cup of Nations standings continue to evolve, and the Premier League, EFL Cup, EFL Championship, EFL One, EFL Two, and FA Cup will all be key battlegrounds for clubs across England.
