PSG: Barely arrived, Galtier had planned a revolution

Posted on September 18, 2022 at 04:00 by Arthur Montagne

This summer, Luis Campos was appointed PSG football advisor, and it didn’t take long to find Mauricio Pochettino’s successor since his choice immediately fell on Christophe Galtier. And the two men then very quickly identified the changes to be made.

After a sluggish season, the PSG changed everything. Thereby, Leonardo was replaced by Luis Campos who therefore found himself in charge of appointing the successor of Mauricio Pochettino. And quickly his choice fell on Christophe Galtier whom he knows very well since their collaboration at the LOSC. And Luis Campos tells how the new coach of the PSG prepared its tactical revolution.

Galtier had planned everything

When I started talking with Christophe about this project, we first talked about the goalkeeper, then the full-backs who are very attacking, then the front three who are really football geniuses, how to integrate them. All this comes from the head of Christophe Galtier, why not play three to have more security. Afterwards, we discussed the midfielder, the midfielder must be different with different profiles from what there was at PSG, that’s why we made the changes. “says the football adviser of the PSG at the microphone of RMCbefore continuing.

“The idea is to have a team block”

The idea is to have a team block, not to have a big distance between the defenders and the attackers. It is also necessary that we do not have position players in midfield. We need players with a lot of volume, all-box boxes and to make the connection. When Christophe told me how he wanted to play with his players, it helped me a lot to think about the profile of the midfielder we had to get for this team. And I think Christophe made a very, very good decision, because the team at the moment is playing well and it’s playing well, especially when the players are involved in the team project and have understood the principles of the game. Our principles games, putting the opponent under pressure, as a team must do together », adds Luis Campos.
