Christophe Galtier on the style of players expected during the transfer window
“The players have been identified, not just the profiles. We want to get the ball as high as possible and that takes a lot of energy. We need a squad with the best possible quality to play every three days while having this ability. to defend while advancing. You also need technical quality because PSG often play against low blocks.”
Christophe Galtier on the transfer window and the sale of players by Antero
“I said we were expecting recruits. Why only talk about Antero. Decisions are taken by the president, Luis Campos and me. It’s going well. We have identified the needs with our busy schedule because we will play every three days from the end of August to November 13. There is the reality of the market, commercial and economic. We have a lot of players under contract and Antero Henrique is counting on him to sell these players. But there is a lag between the sporting aspect where we are in a hurry and the economic aspect. We will have to chain every three days and it is not easy to integrate a new player at the level of automation. It penalizes us sportingly that the desired recruits do not aren’t here yet.”

“Getting suspended for a stupid protest error. The intensity must be there but with control. I talk to the players concerned about it. Marco is like that, we are not going to change him but he seems to me to listen . But we are not immune to an overflow. I tell my players that the o starts at eleven and that we must finish at eleven.”

“The hierarchy changes depending on who is on the pitch. Kylian number two shooter in this match against Montpellier. Neymar number two shooter in this one. Interpretation on the second penalty. Nothing happened on this penalty, it there was a discussion and Neymar felt good.”
