The contrasting performances of Paris Saint-Germain are often singled out by observers.
Although Paris Saint-Germain have conceded only one defeat in all competitions this season, the impression left by Christophe Galtier’s team is not unanimous. After an exciting start to the season in terms of play, the defending champion has been more laborious in recent weeks. What generate certain reservations on the part of observers. After journalist Daniel Riolo, it was a former French international who made a harsh statement about the Ligue 1 leader.
“There, they are in championship mode, quiet”
Called to comment on the performance of Paris Saint-Germain, Johan Micoud expects much more from the capital club. “I found the first month of this PSG very pleasant. There was a real intensity, a real way of playing, a desire to impose his rhythm on the opposing team. I said to myself: there may have been a click and they will play like that in order to have this rhythm in the Champions League. But finally, it fell little by little and we found the PSG that we know. That is to say a PSG which plays its hand, which relies on its stars and which, collectively, no longer impresses me at all. »
” Against Angers, especially in the second half, we did not have the impression of seeing the last in front of PSG, continued the former player of the Girondins de Bordeaux. It is therefore quite surprising to see this PSG again put switches. There, they are in championship mode, quiet. And arrived in the Champions League, they will say to themselves: we will press the switch and put more intensity. Except it doesn’t work that way,” Micoud concluded.
