PSG, Galtier kicked out

While the PSG coach believes he deserves a second season at the head of the Parisian club, Jérôme Rothen believes that the former Lille resident has not convinced enough on the bench of the Rouge et Bleu.

The reception of Clermont on Saturday on the lawn of the Parc des Princes should be the last match for Christophe Galtier in the PSG coaching suit. A year after his arrival at the head of the capital club in place of Mauricio Pochettino, the former midfielder should in turn take the door. If the Rouge et Bleu have preserved the essentials by winning the 11th league title in their history, premature eliminations in the Champions League as in the Coupe de France and the difficulties in Ligue 1 should precipitate its loss. A perspective to which the interested party obviously does not subscribe.

“I personally feel that I deserve to continue, thus informed the Marseille technician. Why do I deserve it? Because I gave it my all this season, with a lot of energy. We knew, I knew how to stay the course in very, very difficult times, whether on a personal or professional level.

You had your chance, but you don’t deserve to stay

In the eyes of Jérôme Rothen, the balance sheet of the Parisian coach is however too weak to give him the right to a second chance. “I’m sorry Christophe, you missed your year. At all levels. You had your chance, but you don’t deserve to stay at Paris Saint-Germain. Afterwards, I think it will bounce elsewhere. He deserves it too.” he asserted, adding: “Yes, he is a champion, but has being champion today for PSG unfortunately not become commonplace? And so behind, what makes it possible to say that the coach has brought interesting things? It’s the style he has, the typical team he puts in place… When you have a squad like that of PSG, there must be clearer outlines than this year. There is no typical team, no style. At the start of the season we were told ‘we are going to defend with three’, then we went back to four, we came back to three midfielders, sometimes to four midfielders… He tested a lot of things. But when you test so much with these players, it’s because after a while you lose control, and it showed in the game.

“There have been nine defeats in the last 27 games. A defeat every three games, noted the former French international. When your name is PSG it’s inconceivable, he added. And then there are the victories and unfortunately for Christophe Galtier, he never had a very clear choice, he protected the statutes… There is only one controlled victory: the 3-0 in Marseille. The rest of the time, even against Angers, Troyes, Ajaccio, he lacked control at times. »
