It’s a double confrontation that will largely tip the balance one way or the other in the 2022-2023 season for Paris Saint-Germain. On February 14 and March 8, the capital club will face Bayern Munich in the knockout stages of the Champions League. Like his predecessors who will have suffered the consequences, Christophe Galtier will be largely judged on the results recorded in C1. Appointed on July 5 as the new coach of the reigning French champion, the tricolor technician spoke for the newspaper brand the pressure that will weigh on his shoulders against the German ogre.

“A sports project was defined with my arrival”

The 56-year-old manager, who responded on the future of Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé, sent a message on his personal case. Under contract until June 2024, the Marseillais believes that Paris Saint-Germain is committing a “mistake” to question everything with each European failure. “I think it’s a mistake to think so. There are 10 teams that each season want to win the Champions League and only one succeeds. And so, the other nine who failed, do we have their coaches to thank? Nope.”

The former Lille coach, who arrived last summer from Nice, thinks he landed at the Parc des Princes to work on the long term. “At PSG, a sports project has been defined with my arrival and that of Luis (Campos). A project defined by the president, and this nuance is very important. At the end of the season there will be an analysis. But it won’t be because we got knocked out in the round of 16 in an unbelievable scenario like Barcelona or Madrid. The analysis must be done on the daily work of a full season, and if this work puts us on the right track. This is how you have to analyze things.”
