PSG is walking on water at the start of the season, but Christophe Galtier immediately wanted to let it be known that complicated things were going to happen. Especially in his choices for the stars of the team.
Everything is going perfectly well at the start of the season at Paris Saint-Germain, and Christophe Galtier has even allowed himself to start two games in a row with the same starting 11, which had almost never happened in a year and a half. with Mauricio Pochettino. Kylian Mbappé being injured, it is Pablo Sarabia who is doing well, but the Spaniard is of course not the center of attention at the start of the season. Lionel Messi and Neymar put on a show, for a flamboyant PSG which crushed Nantes in the Trophée des Champions and Clermont in Ligue 1. At the end of the match, it even turned into a treat for players who make even more of a difference when the defenses relax.
Mbappé back, his place is warm
The return of Kylian Mbappé, suspended against Nantes then injured against Clermont, is therefore expected against Montpellier next weekend. Christophe Galtier confirmed the very likely presence of the 2018 world champion in the next match, and of course assured that it would not be a problem to integrate him into the starting 11. ” Kylian is essential in this project. He had the will to stay here to fulfill very high goals. And for a coach, integrating such a player into this team is not difficult. “Said the PSG coach.

It’s hard to say anything else about who was the best Parisian player last season. Nevertheless, despite his status, Mbappé will be housed in the same boat as everyone else, including Neymar and Messi. This is the message that Christophe Galtier wanted to convey, who does not want to play the hosts of Club Med, and therefore recalls that there will be difficult decisions to be made, and that it may be weird for the stars. of the team. “ I have already mentioned this with the three (Messi, Neymar, Mbappé). We are at one game a week, that’s fine. But as you said, it’s going to be a very compact first half of the season. We will have almost 26 matches with the selections, and then there will be the World Cup. It will obviously be necessary to manage these matches as well as possible. When you ask them if they want to go out, the players say no, no one wants to go out. But it will be necessary to do it, and perhaps also sometimes not to start the match, to keep a strong team throughout the season. “, warned, on Canal, a Christophe Galtier who knows that the acceptance of being on the bench or not to do 90 minutes sometimes gives rise to tensions and controversies. Even if for the moment, PSG is far from such concerns.
