Galtier Reveals His Coaching Experience with Messi, Mbappé, & Neymar
Former Paris Saint-Germain manager Christophe Galtier is breaking his silence since being sacked this past summer. The Frenchman is commenting on several topics from his one season in charge.
One of the apparent questions Galtier had to answer was the experience of coaching Lionel Messi, Neymar Jr., and Kylian Mbappé. Coaching these three players would be the biggest task of his career. As a result, he discussed how he would plan to use them.
“When you become PSG coach and you have these three players, you only have one obsession: how do I combine them,” Galtier told CANAL+ Foot. “Afterwards, you have to find the right balance, and that has been a constant reflection throughout the season.”

« Quand tu deviens coach du PSG et que tu as ces 3 joueurs là, tu n’as qu’une obsession c’est comment je fais pour les associer. […]
Après il faut trouver le juste équilibre et ça a été une réflexion permanente tout au long de la saison. »… pic.twitter.com/BYOnGrbyEL

PSG decided to go in a different direction with their attack. The capital club allowed Lionel Messi to leave as a free agent to join Inter Miami. Meanwhile, Neymar Jr. left Europe after PSG agreed to a transfer with Al-Hilal for €90 million to send the Brazilian to Saudi Arabia.
Mbappé is now at the center of the project, but PSG is taking a gamble as the 24-year-old is playing on an expiring contract and could become a free agent.
