it's a coaching job like elsewhere

", promises Christophe Galtier, immediately adding "

on the ground


Because outside it is anything but normal or ordinary work.

Formerly stationed in Saint-Etienne, Lille and Nice, the 56-year-old technician is gradually discovering his new environment, in full light.

The particularity is that we have very high-level, world-class players.

Then there is everything that this generates, the exposure of the club, of the players but also of my position, with international visibility, it is an incredible sounding board

", he notes on the club media.

And to continue:

So you have to be as natural as possible in day-to-day management with the players, making sure that everything that is said remains as confidential as possible because afterwards, everything is greatly amplified.


To discover

  • Calendar and results Ligue 1

  • League 1 standings

The Marseillais was able to notice this with the controversies surrounding the atmosphere at the Parc des Princes at the start of his term of office and, more recently, that of the "sand yacht"... On the ground too, nothing escapes the eye. informed or not of the observers, more numerous around the Parisian meadow than elsewhere.

You also have to be very careful, and not let yourself be overwhelmed by criticism

, ”Galtier slips in passing, probably referring more to the game.

We have to be more of a killer because we are creating a lot of situations for ultimately few goals in the last matches.

Christophe Galtier

Speaking of the game, Christophe Galtier aims to "

reinforce (the) strengths

" of his team and "

limit the number of errors made at the start of the season, give the opponent less chance of believing that it is possible.


The coach of the 2021 French champions also wants (and above all) to see a “ more killer



We create a lot of situations for ultimately few goals in the last matches.

We must insist on this

“, he swears.

PSG have actually scored “only” seven goals in their last five outings, as many as in the previous three matches, with a fireworks display of 21 in the first four games of the campaign.

In the meantime, the capital club have won 10 of their first 11 matches and have yet to lose.

It's a very good start.

The results mean that there are a lot of smiles but perhaps also that there are good results because there are a lot of smiles

very natural, very frank with the players
