After that, the 55-year-old coach continued his interest in the world of coaching. He was first assistant coach (1999–2009). From 1999 to 2004, Galtier was assistant coach at Marseille, Aris and Bastia. Then, from 2004 to 2009, he worked as assistant coach to Alain Perrin at Al Ain, Portsmouth, Sochaux, Lyon and Saint-Etienne.

In December 2009, Galtier was appointed head coach Saint-Etienne, where the club was in danger of relegation following the departure of Alain Perrin. In his first season, Galtier managed to bring his club to safety, finishing in 17th.

During Galtier’s tenure, Saint-Etienne finished in the top 10 of Ligue 1 for seven consecutive seasons. In fact, four of the 10 seasons ended in the European zone position.

In 2013, Saint-Etienne beat Rennes to win the Coupe de la Ligue, their first trophy in 32 years.

On 9 May 2017, Galtier announced he would be leaving Saint-Etienne at the end of the season after his contract expired. At the time he was the longest-serving Ligue 1 manager, having served eight years.

Meanwhile on 22 December 2017, Galtier became the new manager Lille, who is in 18th position in the league. However, they ended up avoiding the relegation place by one point in the 2017/2018 season.

During the 2020/2021 season, Galtier guided Lille to their first Ligue 1 title in 10 years and their fourth title in the club’s history. Galtier was praised by many pundits during the season for his tactics and ability to develop young talent, including Jonathan David, Renato Sanches and Mike Maignan.

For his efforts, Galtier was named Ligue 1 Manager of the Year for the third time.

On 25 May 2021, two days after winning the league title, he stepped down as manager. “I just have a deep belief that my time here is up,” he said at the time.

Galtier was later appointed as the new head coach of his fellow Ligue 1 club, niceon 28 June 2021. In his first season, he led the team to a fifth and final Coupe de France finish, where they lost 1-0 to Nantes.

However, Nice qualified for the Europa League play-offs as a result. He eventually left Nice on 27 June 2022, being replaced by Lucien Favre.

And, it was the adventure that inspired PSG’s management to put their trust in Galtier. They believe Les Parisiens are in good hands after appointing him on 5 July 2022.
