Galtier defends himself
It must be said that at the time of his extension this summer, the management had guaranteed him the arrival of a center forward who would offer him more freedom on the pitch. A broken promise.
Throughout the preparation, even long before, we discussed many times with the president and Luis Campos to have a reference striker, with another profile, Galtier defended. There is Hugo Ekitike, but he is a very young striker, we were looking for another striker who would allow us to finish off two real strikers, regardless of the system, so that Kylian could evolve more times in his preferential zone. . This player did not arrive, we did not manage to do it.
The coach costs Mbappé but…
After this failure, Mauricio Pochettino’s successor discussed it several times with his center. For Galtier, although Mbappé does not evolve in his best position, he remains very intelligent, able to integrate and analyze his position to adapt his movements according to an organization . In addition, along with players like Neymar and Lionel Messi. We talked at length yesterday (Sunday) at the end of the morning, we changed our expectations revealed the technician.
The 3-4-3 retained against Benfica
We are very sensitive to his comments and his thoughts because he is a very important player. , continued the former LOSC coach, especially attentive to Mbappé, but not yet willing to turn everything upside down for his striker. In fact, despite Messi’s package that could have led him to change the system, L’Equipe says that Galtier will maintain his 3-4-3 against Benfica on Tuesday (9pm) in the Champions League.
The tricolor international will once again be lined up on the front line, with Neymar and Pablo Sarabia as support. At the risk of exposing himself to a new controversial statement, and perhaps to maintain his credibility in the dressing room, the PSG manager does not seem willing to sacrifice his favorite scheme to satisfy Mbappé. Therefore, it would not be surprising if number 7 continued to show his bad mood.
