Often disappointing last season, the attacking trio of Paris Saint-Germain will evolve in different conditions under the orders of Christophe Galtier. The new Parisian coach could allow Kylian Mbappé, Neymar and Lionel Messi to express themselves better together.
Highly anticipated last season, and not just in Ligue 1, the “MNM” really did not meet expectations. Center-forward Kylian Mbappé carried Paris Saint-Germain throughout the exercise. But Lionel Messi and Neymar have rarely shone. The three attackers will therefore be observed again after the appointment of Christophe Galtier. A new coach whose 3-4-1-2 could, according to Walid Acherchour, unlock the attacking trio.

” I was very skeptical about their association last season, especially with regard to the lack of balance in the 4-3-3commented the columnist of the After. But my thinking has matured in recent weeks and I want to believe in it this year for several reasons. The first is the change of system which will make it easier for Neymar and Messi. They weren’t wingers last season and they couldn’t play in the 4-3-3. »
” They will have some defensive freedom, which will give better balance and more solutions with Mendes and Hakimi. With the three in front who did not defend or little, the two side could not go uprecalled the RMC journalist. The second reason is that at the end of last season, even if it was in small matches, I found them getting better and better in their automaticity. »
The MNM finally broken in?
” (…) And the third reason is that ultimately we have never seen the three at their best level at the same time. Mbappé has been extraordinary every time. But Messi had no preparation, there was the story of covid, the change of country… Neymar was injured for three months. I think the game will change this year because they work together during the preparation. For all these reasons, I want to believe it “, Positive Walid Acherchour.
