First in Ligue 1, at the top of their Champions League group and above all displaying a very attractive face, Paris Saint-Germain have never seemed so strong. A major change from last season, which delights Christophe Galtier, who arrived this summer to replace Mauricio Pochettino on the Parisian bench.

When you’re in a club like the PSG, winning is an obligation. But you shouldn’t do it haphazardly, because you have to be attractive as well as efficient, which is not necessarily easy when you have to manage a locker room full of egos. This is especially the case with a stellar attack formed by Kylian Mbappé, Lionel Messi and Neymar, which did not prove entirely satisfactory last season.

“A lot of smiles, so good results! »

In a long interview with PSG-TV, Christophe Galtier explained that the secret lies in the balance between sports results and internal happiness. ” The results mean there are lots of smiles, but the reverse can be true too! Many smiles, so good results! “explained the coach of the PSG. This group cohesion is very important and there is the desire to do things together “.

“It is very important that when the players arrive here at the Training Center they are really happy to come to work”

Locker room unity has often been a problem for the PSG, especially with internal wars between players or clans… which seem to have disappeared for the moment. ” It is very important that when the players arrive here at the Training Center, they are really happy to come to work, to meet, to exchange and share every day “continued Galtier, who is making the best start this season for a new coach in the PSG.

“I am very natural, I am very frank with the players, very direct, quite simply”

Most football watchers have noticed a change in PSG, with players who finally seem able to sacrifice themselves for the collective, which has not always been the case in the past. However, do not count on Christophe Galtier to divulge his miracle recipe. “ Is there a particular recipe? No, I’m very natural, I’m very frank with the players, very direct, quite simply “confided the coach of the PSG, who will now have to stay the course at least until the end of the season.
