The curious explanations of Christophe Galtier after the red of Ramos

What’s next after this announcement?

The games follow one another and PSG begins to stick out its tongue a little. After his weak and late victory against Nice last weekend (2-1), then the tie obtained at Benfica (1-1), now the leader of the French championship has not been able to win in Reims this Saturday (0- 0). At the end of a particularly tense 90 minutes in which both teams had great chances to open the scoring, we especially remember the great fact of the game: Sergio Ramos’ red card before the break. At ten o’clock inevitably, the deal immediately became much more complicated for the players in the capital.

“The red card is penalizing but it is not what caused our bad first half. We needed more variety in our game. I found that my team was better outnumbered. We played better, there were more movements, more fluidity.Christophe Galtier retains after the meeting at a press conference. We created one chance in the first half and two in the second. We made more moves but the end of the match was very stormy for everyone and we can regret it because we have to be better than that.

Galtier: “I am convinced that Sergio did not want to insult the referee”

The Parisian coach evokes two episodes of this end of the match where scuffles between the players of the two teams were linked. The referee of the match, Mr. Pierre Gaillouste, distributed in all directions (Hakimi, Gravillon, Neymar, Mbappé and then Locko) in the space of three minutes. It’s also proof that this PSG still has a hard time controlling all his emotions when things don’t go his way. Above all, Galtier believes that Sergio Ramos probably did not say anything very bad to the referee. He downplayed this event, saying that the Spaniard had let out some annoyance.

“He gets a yellow card. I don’t know if he is to blame. Well, I haven’t seen it. I already experienced it a few years ago in a Nîmes-Lille. There is a football language problem. I’m sure Sergio didn’t mean to insult the referee. He released an expression that he heard hundreds of times throughout the week on the court, that we also hear in the league, when we are angry we have words, we hear words but it is an expression. I think the referee took it when he knew how it was going, I had the same problem for José Fonte in Lille. The referee had taken it as an insult against him when it is an expression that is usually said on the ground. Maybe, but the referee decided otherwise.
