PSG - Christophe Galtier was obvious for Luis Campos: "I called him before my wife and my mother"

The Zinedine Zidane fantasy? He didn’t even dwell on it for a second. Luis Campos assured this Friday on RMC that Christophe Galtier was his first choice as PSG coach. “When the president (Nasser Al-Khelaifi) invited me to take over this position, the first thing I did was call Christophe Galtier. I called him before my wife and my mother. I know his values, his abilities, what he can bring”he explained during the show Rothen ignites.

Luis Campos was appointed Paris Saint-Germain “football adviser” on June 10, while the arrival of Christophe Galtier at the head of the first team was made official on July 5. The two men had collaborated successfully in Lille. “I got along very well with him.develops Campos. We don’t have a lot of time (…) To win quickly, you have to be surrounded by the right people.”

“What worries is the lack of reaction from Galtier”


The strong man of the Paris transfer window says he is seduced by the diligence and professionalism of “his” coach: “This (Friday) morning, I arrived at 8 am at the training center. Christopher (Galtier) was already there. I left (in the afternoon) and he continued to work with his team.” At LOSC, this duo had laid the foundations for a title of champion of France (2021). It is at the top of Europe that they will have to lead PSG to be qualified as a success.

We don’t get to perfection

In the meantime, his adventure at PSG did not necessarily start as Luis Campos hoped. He does not hide it: the summer transfer window is not necessarily to his liking despite the arrivals of Vitinha, Renato Sanches, Hugo Ekitike, Carlos Soler or even Fabian Ruiz and Nordi Mukiele. “We don’t have the perfect balancesaid the Portuguese, who arrived this summer after the dismissal of sporting director Leonardo. We have enormous quality in the squad, no doubt about it, but in the end, we don’t achieve perfection. This is a serious problem for uss.”

His concern? The missed Milan Skriniar, even if he does not say it clearly. After weeks of talks, Paris failed to snatch the Slovak defender from Inter Milan. And that upsets the PSG football adviser. “It’s good to have quality players but when you play with three central defenders and one of them is injured, it puts us in difficulty, Lance Luis Campos. We couldn’t get the player we’re missing. The transfer window is a puzzle and when we are missing a piece, the puzzle is not complete“.

Without language of wood, the former key asset of LOSC and AS Monaco did not hesitate to send a spade to Antero Henrique, former sports director of PSG mandated this summer to ensure the departures of undesirable players. . “When I arrived, there were 54 players and we said we needed 21-22 players and integrate some young people, he explains first. With financial fair play and the 54 players, we needed to start reducing the squad. We have set up a different model with a person responsible for the economic part and me responsible for the athlete, but the two must work together, with the athlete as a priority.“. Enough to cause a stir in the spans of the Camp des Loges.
