Christophe Galtier believes that we should not blame all the evils of PSG on his attacking trio, which is also the strength of the team.
It’s already the next match for PSG. After another hitch against Reims (1-1), the club from the capital travels this Wednesday to Montpellier, for the 21st day of Ligue 1. With the obligation to show a different face than in recent weeks.
Unhappy Sunday nightChristophe Galtier called his players to order. “That’s what I said and repeated to my players this morning, we have to find the requirement, individual and collective efforts, something that we saw very often in the first part of the season. The taste for efforts for others, it is difficult to find this in the month of January. Everyone must have an awareness of what they give to the team”said the Parisian coach this Tuesday at a press conference, relays RMC.
After Reims, the debate has been revived on the lack of defensive investment of the trio of PSG stars, Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappé and Neymar, which tends to unbalance the team. For Christophe Galtier, this is obviously not a problem, since the Parisian coach has tried to defend his stars.
“The MNM? If they had achieved what they usually achieve, we would surely not have this debate.
“We have three incredibly strong attacking players, I think it’s 55 goals, 34 assists since the start of the season. Tell you that we have to deprive ourselves of one of the three players to be balanced? It is a mistake, he complains. There is the observation of a match which means that, yes, we cannot be satisfied with what we did in the first period. We just have to find a better balance, more legs, freshness so that the team becomes what it was. »
Obviously, it is therefore up to the eight other Parisian players to run for eleven. Because Galtier is ready to forgive his attackers everything, as long as they are effective in front of goal. “Let’s take the Reims match. Kylian and Leo haven’t achieved what they usually achieve on an attacking level but it’s not a question of state of mind. If they had succeeded in what they usually succeed, we would surely not have this debate, thus believes Galtier. On the organization and balance we must find something else, we are working on it. It jumped out at us all against Reims in the first half, what we produced was downright insufficient. Whatever the system, everyone must give more on the pitch. » But some a little more than others, right?
