Mercato at PSG: "The fact that these players do not arrive penalizes us", regrets Christophe Galtier


The PSG coach, who goes to Lille this Sunday for the French championship, judges the PSG transfer window a little too slow for his taste. He has

This Friday, two days before PSG's trip to Lille on behalf of the third day of Ligue 1, Christophe Galtier was at a press conference at Camp des Loges.

The coach swept the news of the club, in particular the transfer window in the direction of arrivals.

For him, it's not going fast enough.

Between Mbappé and Neymar, is there any discomfort after

the case of the second penalty against Montpellier

, last Saturday?


There is no discomfort.

We saw each other the next day to iron out all that, to tell each other what we had to say, between us.

We had a very pleasant week at work.

We prepared well for the match against Lille, I enjoyed all the sessions.

This epiphenomenon disappeared very quickly, the next day, after cleaning.

What is the hierarchy of set pieces?

It can only be scalable: it depends on who is on the ground.

Regarding Montpellier, it was precise: number 1 Kylian, number 2 Ney.

There was an exchange and a discussion between Kylian and Ney on the second penalty.

Will it always be these two players?

There may be Messi, Ramos… There is what I say and which must be respected, and there is the reality of the match and the moment.

Vitinha will soon be suspended.

Is discipline a subject of discussion with the players?

It's a subject, of course.

Being suspended for excessive protest penalizes the team.

From August 28, we will chain every three days.

I talk about it to the players concerned.

It takes intensity, but also control.

Marco Verratti is listening, but we are not immune to excesses, this concerns all players.

What do you like about the Vitinha-Verratti pair?

Marco has experience at a very high level.

He is very intelligent in his placement, he has a great connection with others.

Vitinha likes to strike, to project herself… I work a lot on this association.

You cannot have the same profiles.

What is important is the use of the ball.

Is it easy to integrate Mbappé into this Messi-Neymar duo, which has been flamboyant since the start of the season?

It was a trio last season.

He was very efficient.

He is constantly looking for himself inside the game. It's a real trio, not a pair and yes, it's easy to integrate Kylian (laughs).

Two weeks ago, you said you were expecting three more recruits.

Do you have any news from Antero Henrique, in charge of transfer negotiations?

Yes, I said two weeks ago that I was still expecting three recruits.

Why Antero?

I have read many things.

The sports management reports to the president, Luis Campos and myself, and it works very well like that.

We have identified the players we are missing.

There is the reality of the market and we have a lot of players under contract.

This is what the club is counting on Antero to reduce the number of contracts.

We chat every day.

There is always a gap between the economic and sporting aspect.

We, we are in a hurry, will soon continue, and we must not believe that it is easy to integrate a new player.

The fact that these players do not arrive penalizes us.

Will rookies have to match your game?

The players have been clearly identified by the president, Luis Campos and myself.

I want the ball to be recovered as quickly and as high as possible.

The rotation must not penalize our game, which consists of defending while advancing.

Will Neymar stay at PSG?

There are always plenty of surprises in the transfer window.

I didn't hear him say he asked to leave.

He trains well, he performs well.

He doesn't give me the feeling of a stand-by player.

The transfer window remains the transfer window.
