This is the end of this press conference
And it changes from Pochettino’s. So we know that Renato Sanches will go to Paris this Thursday afternoon and that PSG still hope to recruit three players. Galtier may have the profiles in mind, but he didn’t make it clear at this press conference. Next game Saturday night 9 pm in Clermont.
Galtier is still waiting for three players
You asked how many, I will answer you three, after all, I know the difficulty of the transfer window. and we are not here to gather players. I want a certain number of players in my squad and players close to the level with healthy competition. Whether these three players will arrive soon, later or not at all, I do not know. But I know the club is doing everything to get the best team.
In Sergio Ramos
“Automatically, he is part of the executives in the locker room and it has happened to me in different clubs that there are executives who do not play, but I always rely on this profile of players who have an amazing career, and what is needed they bring in terms of professionalism. to each other and what they can bring to me through their experience that I don’t have and that I don’t have After Sergio got better, he didn’t miss any training session.”
“I am not and I do not want to be the ambassador of French coaches”
“There is always a part not of excitement, but a real desire to enter the competition. When Paris-St Germain travels, it is usually the game of the season for the home team and there is this desire to live in this all. What my colleagues say, it’s a pleasure. I make sure to be very supportive of my colleagues, we have a very difficult job. But I’m not and I don’t want to be the “ambassador of coach of France. I am the coach of Paris Saint-Germain. I am the coach of an amazing team, in a hyper-exposed club, a big club. I am happy to receive scores of support from all over the world, but it should stop there. When I go to play against them, they want to beat me.”
“There will always be competition, the player’s performance will always be put forward but we have to arrange the playing times so that everything is efficient and that we lose as few players as possible on November 13. Because after World Cup, we see, there is also a winter transfer window.
“Renato Sanches is expected this afternoon”
Galtier confirmed the arrival of Sanches. “He is a player with qualities that others do not have, especially MArco Verratti and Vitinha, he is very explosive, hits hard, has an impact. there is this opportunity in the market: he knows the French championship and the very high. level. he has to integrate. He’s behind in preparation but he’s really different in terms of explosiveness, breaking lines and catching defensive shots as well.”
With the return of Kylian Mbappé and the trio with Neymar and Messi. What is the key?
Glad to have Kylian back for first league game. He was very happy to be back in the competition. As for the famous balance, it is first of all a collective desire but also an individual responsibility. There are very close times when the team has not got the upper hand on the opponent, we must be careful not to give the opponent chances to run us. If you have a partner who makes an effort, it’s obviously contagious and makes the person next to you want to make the same effort. Then there may be moments in the game where we find ourselves with attackers, pistons who struggle to return and we must admit that sometimes we need to save time so that those who have been removed can return to the game. .”
Here’s Galtier in front of the media, and we then talk about the game system
“You get the feeling when you say you play 3 or 5 that it’s a defensive system, but I think it’s the opposite and it’s a system that can lead us to have more world in an offensive position . This system allows the attack of numbers and must provide the right balance to avoid these changes.”
Satisfied with the champions trophy
“We attacked together and we defended together. We conceded few chances apart from one from six meters and to be honest, that’s what we worked on this morning, we didn’t give away the chances too easily. of opponents.”
Galtier faces the club media
“Yes, we are good physically. The Champions Trophy was a good performance, which allowed us to take the pace. We prepared well, we had no muscular incidents, everyone was able to work well.”
A few minutes late
It remains to be hoped now that Galtier will be more talkative and open than Mauricio Pochettino whose confessions are painful to follow.
The transfer window
Here we are in the news and rumors this Thursday at noon: Renato Sanches is coming, it’s about to be formalized. Another midfielder could follow, this was the weakest sector last season, especially physically.
Wijnaldum will fly to Roma where he is expected to join Roma on loan.
