Christophe Galtier has taken over the role of Paris Saint-Germain’s manager. The Frenchman reveals key tactics ahead of the next season.
The 55-year-old peeked into various topics regarding how to bring back the club from its ruins. He discussed a variety of subjects, including his strategic ideas for this campaign, noting that he would not line up the team in the same manner as he had at Nice or Lille.
Galtier on PSG
Christophe Galtier said Paris is a different club compared to the other League 1 contenders. The former Mastiffs manager doesn’t see how the club can succeed by using simple tactics.
“We will automatically have to adapt our system of play to the squad that will be at my disposal, to the talented players that will make up that squad,” the Frenchman added.
“We won’t be able to play, and I won’t make Paris Saint-Germain play in the same way as I have done with other sides in the past, whether it was at Nice recently, but also at Lille or Saint-Etienne,” Galtier said according to PSG TV.
How does he intend to win titles?
Galtier has managed various clubs in France like Nice, Lille, and Saint-Etienne. He’s played against Paris Saint-Germain on many occasions & is well aware of the side’s playstyle. As a result, he would surely turn out to be a good manager during his time in the capital.
Christophe is well known for his 4-4-2 formation that was implemented during his days in OGC Nice. He never pushed higher and played things conservatively which resulted in a decent run for the club. However, this doesn’t work with the Parisians because their playstyle is entirely different.
PSG plays with the classic 4-3-3 and tries to maintain possession throughout the game. The defenders don’t press higher and the midfielders control the game at all times. This kind of playstyle demands extreme patience to win the ball & keep the opposition under pressure.
In conclusion, Christophe Galtier is an amazing manager. To win League 1 with Lille back in 2021 against Paris was his biggest achievement. The Frenchman knows how to play his cards on the table & will surely pull a stint with the Paris side.
