The capital club took advantage of Christophe Galtier’s press conference on the eve of the shock against Lens to speak about the case.
Christophe Galtier knows his situation at PSG is particularly precarious. The Parisian coach no longer has any illusions and already considers that he will no longer be on the bench for the capital club next season. The tricolor technician can nevertheless count on the support of his leaders as he faces heavy accusations of racism since Tuesday and the disclosure of an email from Julien Fournier, then sports director of OGC Nice, to the management of ‘Ineos. An email in which the former leader of the Aiglons claimed that the native of Marseille had made racist and Islamophobic remarks about his players.
The first reaction from PSG on Wednesday was timid. On Friday, the club had a statement read in the preamble to the press conference for a severe update. But if the Rouge et Bleu support Christophe Galtier, it is more for the threats he has been subjected to since Tuesday than for the accusations made, relying on justice.
Let the truth be established by justice
“Serious allegations have been made in the media against our coach Christophe Galtier. Christophe responded clearly by firmly denying them and announcing that he was going to file a complaint. The Club supports Christophe Galtier after the numerous and unacceptable threats he has received and now wants the truth to be established by justice.” PSG said, adding: “While awaiting the conclusion of the judicial time and in order to protect the safety of all, the Club calls on everyone to assume their responsibilities and to calm down. »
And the PSG to recall its firm position on racism and Islamophobia. “Paris Saint-Germain, its management, its players and all employees, have no tolerance for intolerance on and off the pitch. The fight against racism and all forms of discrimination is a fundamental commitment of the Club, sued the capital club. Paris Saint-Germain will not let themselves be troubled by this episode, and everyone remains fully focused on tomorrow’s game. »
