Since the start of the season, PSG have had impressive results, thanks in particular to the performances of their attacking trio. Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappé have incredible statistics in just three Ligue 1 matches. And Christophe Galtier does not hide his joy.

After two lackluster seasons, the PSG changed a lot of things internally, starting with his coach. Christophe Galtier actually replaced Mauricio Pochettinoand the results were not long in being seen. Indeed, after the large victory during the Champions Trophy against the FC Nantes (4-0), the PSG chained three magnificent victories in Ligue 1 against Clermont (5-0), Montpellier (5-2) and Lille (7-1) thus scoring 17 goals in just three matches. Impressive performances, especially on the offensive level as underlined Christopher Galtier.

Galtier ignites for the MNM

It’s a great satisfaction to see them happy on the field, and playing for each other. When such talents come together, it makes for a very enjoyable match. But there is also a collective expression within this team. I saw positive signals in the substitution, especially from the front three. That’s why I didn’t make any changes in attack. I saw them very happy together. It was very important, and it is part of this almost perfect game. Leo ran a lot, Ney too. Kylian is well placed in the axis. This is a very important point against a low block. Then, in the transition, with the technical quality and the speed, it goes very quickly “explained the coach of the PSG Sunday night.

Mbappé’s return changes everything

Injured on the first day, Kylian Mbappe made his comeback against Montpellier and has already scored 4 goals, including a hat-trick against LOSC. Christophe Galtier thus evoked the integration of the French international in his system: The animation evolves with the presence of Kylian, who was suspended then a little injured. We try to find the best possible balance. They played like that too last season in another organization. They played for each other with strong images between them, a lot of complicity, smiles. I liked this willingness to play for each other. »

Neymar, the key factor of PSG

Finally, Christophe Galtier also mentioned the start of the season of Neymar who scored 5 goals and delivered 6 assists in just 3 matches. ” Ney’ is the one who gives the most balance among the front three. He is a player who has a lot of volume, intensity. Compared to this system, which has advantages, but also disadvantages – it is up to my colleagues to find them – it is very important that one of the three attackers provides the balance. Otherwise it can be exhausting, annoying for us. We’ve been working for eight weeks now to get all players to make defensive efforts when they can. “, assures the coach of the PSG.
