PSG: Galtier falls from above, Al-Khelaïfi wanted Motta

Proud of his work and sure of his skills, Christophe Galtier feels legitimate as Paris Saint-Germain coach. The former OGC Nice coach thinks he is Nasser Al-Khelaïfi’s number one choice. But in reality, the Parisian president had another plan in mind.

Confirmation in terms of results since the Parisians, leaders of Ligue 1 and qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League, are still undefeated in all competitions. Nevertheless, Christophe Galtier has an interest in continuing this momentum.

While the president preferred the profile of Thiago Motta. The Qatari had even asked his sports adviser to contact the Italian-Brazilian. The transfer window specialist then complied, telling the ex-La Spezia coach that he was not his priority.

Nasser Al-Khelaïfi did not oppose his new leader. But Christophe Galtier now knows what to expect, he who boasted of his legitimacy this week at the microphone of RMC. ” With the suit that was cut for me before my arrival. I heard someone say we were expecting George Clooney and it was Dany Boon who arrivedrecalled the native of Marseille. I wish many people to be Dany Boon anyway. I heard the remarks. »

Galtier will be disappointed

First, I was chosen by the president, thank yourejoiced the Parisian coach. Secondly, Luis Campos wanted me to come to reform a duo that worked well in Lille. After the daily presence of Luis and the permanent exchanges with the president, I feel legitimate. When I make a decision, there are a lot of people around the table that I ask to know if I’m right or not. Proud of his appointment, Christophe Galtier risks falling from above.
