Paris Saint-Germain begins the defense of the French Ligue 1 champion title, Saturday, with a trip to Clermont. In Mbappe’s absence, Galtier relies on the pair of Messi and Neymar. The Brazilian knows the rules that Paris Saint-Germain imposes.
Paris Saint-Germain players discover Christophe Galtier’s working methods and if the French coach cannot reinvent football in daily work, it is especially important in managing his group the transfer of the former Nice coach. At the moment, the Republic of Players is no longer at the Camp des Loges, and indeed it is the Galtier-Campos duo that sets the law. Kylian Mbappe had hinted during his contract extension to 2025 that without the necessary detour, PSG would never be able to fulfill their European dream. And if the French superstar said very kindly, then his boss Nasser Al-Khelaifi directly warned players who did not focus 100% on the capital club to expect to be expelled. And inevitably, all eyes turned to Neymar, who regularly crossed the line. We now know Christoph Galtier’s new bylaws, and the number 10 must comply.
To ensure that Neymar will not spend his nights in front of the podium, television or in Parisian parties, PSG players are now expected to have breakfast before training at a specific time. Just enough to make sure they can work, no apology is tolerated for escaping this meeting, not least the Gastros who hit the Paris players the day after a big party. ” We’ve set rules for shared time, breakfast, and lunch slots. But no policeman is watching all the way back and forth. It’s just a normal life. We spend a lot of time together, in hotels or at Camp des Loges, you just need to set certain principles to be fun. Same for schedules: everyone has to be on time or else it causes accidents that can be annoying. In order to respect the people who are on time, I am on time, this is the basis ”, warns Christophe Galtier, in the daily Ile-de-France, who therefore would not want Neymar to be delayed so much and sometimes in a country that does not deserve a professional footballer.
In the daily life of the group, the PSG coach also laid down the rules when the group is together, for example on the use of the phone. “ I also heard that I ban phones on the table. This is a mistake ! I just ask them to cut the bells and not answer the table. But I’m not stopping them from watching a live football match anyway or getting an urgent call. In this case, they make a sign and isolate themselves, no problem “explains the Marseille native, who admits to speaking French in his locker room, but has not forced his players to do so. He has not confirmed the implementation of the player monitoring system in the various Parisian institutions likely to welcome his players late at night, including his number 10, Christophe Galtier admitted that in the last year, when he was in Nice, he heard a lot of things about ” Mess ‘, but he admits that he found that everything about PSG often took a completely crazy turn, including for a player like Neymar.
