Galtier invited to draw inspiration from Tudor


The match against Reims on Sunday evening would have highlighted Christophe Galtier’s inability to assert his authority over the team.

Paris again dropped points in Ligue 1 on Sunday evening. Against Reims, the capital team conceded a draw at home. Even if the goal conceded came in stoppage time and PSG played with ten, this result is not outrageous. Will Still’s team did more than stand up to Galtier’s.

“Galtier is a prisoner of his attacking trio”

Paris therefore failed in its task. But, he might have been able to win if there had been more focus and generosity in the late game effort. This is what his midfielder Danilo Pereira notably deplored at the final whistle. The Portuguese regretted the fact that the team did not know how to “suffer together”.

This observation, the famous journalist Stéphane Guy has also made. For him, the underperformance suffered is partly due to the reluctance of attackers to participate in defensive work. And for that, he highlights the responsibility of the coach. “The defensive performance of the front three, we don’t see anything about it,” he said on RMC. I think he (Galtier) works on it in training, but Messi and Neymar don’t race. It is still the basis”.

The former presenter Canal+ advises Galtier to follow the example of his Marseille counterpart Igor Tudor. “Galtier is a prisoner of this attacking trio. He has to put them on. They are untouchable. Galtier cannot do it. Tudor released Mattéo Guendouzi, OM’s hyped player, at half-time. Galtier wouldn’t be able to do that. He doesn’t have that freedom. It’s a political club. The goal is not to build the best team. It is a complete reversal of sporting benchmarks”.

Same story with his colleague Daniel Riolo, who never misses the opportunity to bring down the Parisian team and its management. “They’ve never been so bad in a whole month like this. We tried this week to sell us articles on Galtier, the yellow vest crisis. Attention, a flat 4-4-2… The hierarchy (of those who must sacrifice themselves for the collective) is drawn according to the results. There, Messi and Mbappé released a great World Cup, so it’s Neymar who sticks to it. Neymar ran and ended up burned. So much, he is not used to it”.
