The confession of the former PSG coach about Messi, Neymar and Mbappe
For many, having three stars of the caliber of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar Jr on the same team was synonymous with success in every sense of the word. However, in PSG 2021-22, it was not that way. The three superstars did not have the best of results, and despite being champions of France on multiple occasions, their great goal, the UEFA Champions League, was not even close to arriving. Now, the coach who had the privilege of directing them, already shares his opinion about them in an interview for Canal +.
At the beginning of July, the link between the Parisian institution and the strategist that lasted just one season ended, after he was involved in racist accusations and discrimination that led to a trial that will take place on December 15. The former Lille and Nice player could not lead PSG towards the desired goal, the UEFA Champions League, and had to settle for the Ligue 1 title, which is practically an obligation. Another disappointment, however, was the elimination in the round of 16 of the French Cup.
In short, Galtier returned to the scene: he made it clear that he left the club in the French capital without conflict, he explained the issue that affected him and was also consulted on a juicy topic: the management of great figures such as the Argentine, the Brazilian and Kylian Mbappé , who constituted a stellar attack from which more fruits were expected. For the coach, there were many factors for not being able to achieve success with these players, but he also assures that a lot had to do with the wrong decisions that he made.
What did Galtier say about Messi, Neymar and Mbappe?
Along the same lines, he delved into his analysis: “When you are PSG coach and you have these three players, you only have one obsession: how to combine them. Make them act for the good of the team, for the game, scoring goals and giving pleasure to “We always had (the need) to find the right balance, and it was a constant reflection.” On the other hand, he confessed that one of the most complicated things was the decision to have to take one of them out, since they did not want to go out. On the other hand, he admitted to being happy with what he got.
