How Christophe Galtier remobilized his troops before the Coupe de France

Since the end of the World Cup, Paris Saint-Germain have suffered their first two league defeats. Any time outside against Lens then reindeer. On the pitch some players don’t give the feeling of having done everything to make things better and go beyond results, this is partly what annoyed the staff.

Without declaring a state of emergency, Christophe Galtier delivered the message to his players as he confided in the press conference. Especially during individual interviews. Last Saturday, in front of his group, in the dressing room of the training center, the 2021 French champion wanted to mobilize everyone.

He specifically pointed to the insufficient investment of his players since the world’s return. Necessary speech as PSG seem to be able to do much better. The lack of racing, technical flaws and lack of commitment is glaring against Rennes for example.

Neymar feels targeted

However, among some locker room execs, it goes without saying that Paris could make a better copy and awareness has come after two setbacks away from Taman. The next few weeks will allow us to measure it. Others, like Neymar feels targeted by what they might perceive as reproach. The Brazilian knows he is highly expected.

Christophe Galtier announced at a press conference that he aims to field the best team this Monday night in the last 16 against amateur Pays de Cassel. It has to happen with a few exceptions. Lionel Messi resting Hugo Ekitike should start with Kylian Mbappé and Neymar. In defense Nuno Mendes could return to 11. Marquinhos should be linked with Sergio Ramos. Once again the highly permeable world champion’s defense will be heavily watched. Christophe Galtier hopes to bring competition back to the weakened sector. Presnel Kimpembe should be back in collective session “in 8 or 10 days” according to the former technician from Saint-Etienne. The French defender is optimistic that he even hopes to enter the group that will face Bayern Munich on February 14.
