While the Lionel Messi case is settled, Paris Saint-Germain ensures that the fate of Christophe Galtier remains to be defined. Can we believe it?
“We have not made a decision, neither on the coach nor on the players. » The sentence was launched on Saturday evening by Luis Campos, the sports adviser of PSG. Officially, according to the club of the capital, nothing is recorded for Christophe Galtier. Surprising when L’Equipe, a few hours with this 38th day of Ligue 1, assured the decision had been made to separate from the French technician.
Can we trust Campos’ words? Information provided by clubs must always be treated with caution. Thursday, at a press conference, Galtier announced what everyone suspected: that this match against Clermont would be Messi’s last with PSG. In the process, the club denied, assuring that its coach had expressed himself badly. Forty-eight hours later, Messi’s departure was officially confirmed by PSG.
Thursday’s denial was therefore a lie, perfectly explainable: PSG wants to control its communication, the timing of its announcements. For Galtier, either there is one final lock to break (next week’s meeting with Campos), or the club simply wants to wait one or two days, so as not to do like Bayern who fired two of their leaders for a few minutes. only after obtaining the title of German champion.
In the meantime, Galtier reacted to this article announcing his official departure. “I saw that my cell phone was vibrating a lot when I turned it on so I thought something was up.he confided in a press conference. I read this information from L’Equipe, I spoke with Luis Campos during the day and it was agreed that we would meet at the beginning of the week to take stock of this season. And afterwards, we will see what decisions the management will take. »
