Pointed out after the draw conceded by Paris Saint-Germain against Stade Rémois on Sunday evening (1-1), the “MNM” would be “totally trainable”, according to Jérôme Rothen, who questions the management of Christophe Galtier.
Less efficient than in the first part of the season, the attacking trio of PSG – Mbappé, Neymar and Messi – finds itself at the heart of criticism. Some observers believe that it is simply not possible to play with these three stars at the same time, they who are not really concerned with the defensive withdrawal. However, this is not the opinion of Jérôme Rothen.
“They are totally trainable and I find it incredible that we are debating about it and that some people are saying that we cannot win with these players”thus released the former PSG player on the airwaves of RMC, in response in particular to Daniel Riolo who, for his part, thinks that it is impossible to align an attack Mbappé-Neymar-Messi without unbalancing the team.
“That we don’t want to touch it before a match, I find that totally justifiable by the incredible stats of these players, continued Rothen. Then there is the form of the moment. It is in this sense that I say that they are trainable. The coach is still the one who sees them every day in training, who sees how invested they are. (…) There is no one better placed than Christophe Galtier and his staff to realize this. He has them every day. We cannot realize that. For me, the essential thing is that, when Christophe Galtier forms a team, it is that he says to himself “I am going to win with this team”. »
“This is where Galtier made a mistake”
For the host of the program “Rothen ignites”, the fault lies with Christophe Glatier, who does not dare to take out his star attackers during the match. “In the Reims match, you see straight away that there are a lot of players who lack investment, self-sacrifice, races, aggressiveness, he remarked. At halftime, there is nothing that obliges him to keep the players on the field! Whether your name is Messi, Soler, Hakimi or Bernat, if the guy you think is not concerned, you have the right to take him out at halftime. What will happen if you take out Messi? Do you think Messi is going to say “wait, you’re taking me out when I was good on the pitch”? No, everyone saw you bad, he’s not going to tell him anything. Why does Galtier never do it then? Well because I think he doesn’t want to and that’s where he makes a mistake. »
