PSG Press Review: Neymar, Galtier, Xavi Simons…


Seen and read about PSG in the hex press this Thursday, June 30, 2022. Neymar could leave PSG, the reception of the new home jersey, Christophe Galtier which is unanimous before its formalization in Paris, the underside of Xavi Simons’ departure from PSV…

The daily The Team focuses on Christophe Galtier and the fact that he is unanimous within French football although he is still not officially the coach of PSG. The daily questioned a number of people about him and “his inexperience in a club of this standing, in his management of stars like Neymar, Lionel Messi or Kylian Mbappé or in the Champions League, the real justice of the peace of a Parisian coach, does not seem to worry our interlocutors.
Bernard Caiazzoits former president in Saint-Étienne, is certain that he will succeed with the Rouge & Bleu: “Wherever he went, he outperformed. He is someone who learns every day. For me, his departure was the beginning of the end. Beyond the friendship that binds us and our families, it was very hard for him to leave. I knew that we were never going to relive what we had experienced with him, the European Cup in particular.
Philippe MontanierTFC coach, believes he knows he will have the personality to manage egos and he has shown his qualities as a leader in complex situations: “He showed all his management qualities in difficult situations, like in Saint-Étienne, in Lille too when he succeeded Marcelo Bielsa. It’s one of his qualities. He has already trained cosmopolitan squads as well. He has the stature for that. »
For Jean-Marc Furlan, coach of AJ Auxerre, signing for PSG would be a risk for him: “It’s true that managing the club in the capital is not like when you are in Lille or Nice. You are taking a very important step. In terms of image, and all that, yes it’s a risk. There, you reach the capital, you have much bigger goals. »

The Team returns to the departure of xavi simons to PSV Eindhoven. On the PSG side, we “hoped to have him extend his first professional contract”. His signing for the Dutch club represents “a blow, at a time when the president Nasser al-Khelaifi announced its intention to refocus the Parisian project around training. The player knew how to be “a major element” of the Parisian U19s and especially in the Youth League. The daily explains that it remains to know the true content of the agreement between the Parisian titi and the PSV. If certain sources, in particular close to PSG, “refer to a buyout clause of €4m, other players in the file, in particular on the PSV side, deny any clause of this type.” A claim that goes against the information shared by RMC Sports and The Parisian this Wednesday, which ensured that this famous clause existed. But “it seems clear that the ball remains in the player’s court in the event of renewed interest from PSG in a return.”

According The Parisian, Neymar felt targeted by his president’s recent remarks Nasser Al-Khelaifi, and no longer seems to be in the odor of sanctity under the skies of Paris, and accuses the blow. Seeing his big band friends Red Blue placed on the transfer list like Leandro Paredes or leave the ship as Angel Di Maria, Neymar could lose weight and influence within the locker room of the PSG. An influence described by our colleagues from Parisian as harmful, pointing out that the Brazilian star ” would encourage some of its partners to take some liberties with the codes in force“. Moreover, the French media also advances the domination of Neymar on the dressing room which caused tensions within it with the Europeans of the PSGciting the names of Julian Draxler, Presnel Kimpembe or even the former players of the Paris Saint Germain, Adrien Rabiot.
Additionally, the newspaper The Parisian writes that in the spirit of number 10 of the PSG there is no longer any doubt: It is better to start from PSG“. Neymar would therefore be ready to leave, but would not make it easy for its leaders. They are ready to keep the player and sell him. Both scenarios are considered, and it is in this sense that the board Red Blue would have already checked the names of two attackers to succeed his Brazilian star.
If a departure should be recorded, the hardest part will be to find the best base. Indeed, some tracks are more credible and take more depth than others. The first mentioned is the one leading to Newcastle. In the middle of the year World Cup, Neymar does not wish to join the north of England. It’s always in Premier League that the suitors make themselves known: Manchester United and chelsea could enter the race. The Mancunians will have to separate from Cristiano Ronaldo if they wish to secure the services of the attacker of the PSG. It is in this sense that The Parisian claims that number 7 of Red Devils will not ” not compatible with the game philosophy advocated by Erik ten Hag“. Finally, the need and desire to strengthen in the offensive sector of chelsea could attract Neymar. In London, the Brazilian would find another: Thiago Silva. Former teammate at PSG and always with the same tunic in selection, the two men maintain a strong relationship. Moreover, the former player of the FC Barcelona could find Thomas Tuchel on the bench, the one who coached him at Paris Saint Germain. The German technician could cope with the desire and preference of the new owner of the Blues turning towards Ousmane Dembele.

The Parisian interviewed many supporters of the PSG and the latter are “snatching up” the new tunic for the coming season. A supporter, for example, explains that the new jersey is reminiscent of the old ones and absolutely wanted to flock it in the name of Kylian Mbappe : “Me, it reminds me of the old-fashioned jersey, when there was still Pastor and all that… It’s pretty much the same thing, but a bit smaller in band. Except that there, we have a player who is exceptional. Exceptional! The day I learned of its extension, I swore to myself that I would buy the jersey the day it was released. And the four sets of club shirts I will buy them. The fourth ! I’m looking forward to the exterior, the third one, the white one, is magnificent, after that there will be the black one and a little gold…”
