“Very close to burn-out”: The PSG coach settles his accounts


Passionate about sport, cinema and television (on screen as well as behind) since his childhood, Bernard has been a journalist for 10 Sport since 2018. More skilful with the keyboard in hand than with the ball, he decided to mainly cover a much-loved sport, criticized and hated both (football) and a sport that is not (wrestling).

Criticized when he arrived at PSG, Christophe Galtier is still struggling to convince the most skeptical, and the face displayed by the capital club at the start of 2023 does not help. The Parisian technician hears the criticisms of which he is the subject and responds to them before the trip to Marseille.

While the arrival of Zinedine Zidane was hoped for by many in the capital, it is finally Christopher Galtier who was appointed head of PSGtaking over from Mauricio Pochettino and finding Luis Fieldswith whom he worked at LOSC. A choice far from unanimous due to the inexperience at the very high level of the tricolor technician. Since then, Christophe Galtier has not silenced the most skeptical while the Parisian start to the season has not been easy, with in particular a complicated post-World Cup period in terms of play and results (6 wins, 2 losses, 1 draw).

“He is very close to burnout”

Galtier is very tired, he took ten years since he arrived at PSG. He is very close to burnout like all the others before himlaunched in particular the journalist Daniel Riolo this week. He doesn’t have a free hand, but he’s the only one who says he won’t take out one of the stars. He’s not even a DH trainer… He’s Jean-Claude Dusse, on a misunderstanding, we can win. » The chronicler of theAfter Foot is not the only one to blame Christopher Galtierwhich does not escape the latter.

“Not hearing criticism would be deaf”, reacts Galtier

Not hearing criticism would be deaf. I understand them. Then I won’t look for excusesrespond Christopher Galtierbefore facing theOM in the Coupe de France, interviewed on the show All Sports. It’s true (some weren’t kind to him when he arrived, editor’s note), they still are, tough and difficult. But it’s like that. Believe me, even if it is difficult to be the coach of Paris Sant-Germain, I am very happy and I give everything so that we can succeed in all areas. It’s a pleasure to coach Paris Saint-Germain, a real pleasure. »

“I knew it was like that”

Christopher Galtier therefore shows no regrets about his choice despite the criticism he is the target of, aware of the challenge that awaited him by signing for the PSG : “ When you are at PSG, you have an obligation of result. Everything is a priority at Paris Saint-Germain, you have to win everything, that’s how it is. Obviously it’s new (for him, editor’s note), sometimes you win and even if you’re not good the criticism is enormous. Sometimes you can be good and get stuck on a draw, the criticism is huge. It’s like that, you have to accept it, but coming to Paris Saint-Germain, I knew it was like that. »
