Foot PSG – PSG brutally destroys the South American clan
Paris Saint-Germain has put a French coach back on his bench, and in the process the club from the capital wants the players not to group together according to their origins.
After Antoine Kombouaré and Laurent Blanc, Christophe Galtier is the third tricolor coach to take up the post of Paris Saint-Germain coach. Upon landing in the capital, the coach understood that he was going to have to manage a workforce where the French language is not the norm and where it was visible in the locker room. For several seasons, we have been talking about a South American clan at PSG, it is true that the Brazilian and Argentine colony is important. But for Christophe Galtier and Luis Campos, reinforced by Nasser Al-Khelaifi, it is now time to mend the locker room and for that it was necessary to make Neymar, Lionel Messi, Leandro Paredes and others understand that this situation was unbearable for some young people. players. L’Equipe thus explains that El Chadaille Bitshiabu, the young defender of PSG, had urgently taken Spanish lessons in order to be able to exchange more easily with his teammates, who did not make an effort to speak our language.
Speak Spanish, imperative at PSG? It’s finish
For a few seasons, this situation had persisted and players such as Christophe Nkunku and Moussa Diaby, now gone, had made it known that this influence of the South American clan was unpleasant. In the heart of last winter, Le Parisien revealed that Presnel Kimpembe also complained about this fragmentation of the PSG locker room. As a result, Galtier and Campos quickly took charge, not by forcibly imposing that the players mingle and that everyone speaks in the language of Molière. On the occasion of the week spent in Japan, everything was implemented so that the players mix and not only according to their origins, and obviously it was to everyone’s taste. Of course, no one can stop Messi and Neymar from being close, but PSG want their dressing room to be united and not fragmented.
On the side of the staff of Christophe Galtier, things have the merit of being clear, we speak in French, which seems logical. Similarly, in a press conference, the Paris Saint-Germain coach remains in the comfort zone of his mother tongue, Mauricio Pochettino having never made the effort to speak in our language. Of course, we are no longer in the Middle Ages. Clinging to this symbol would be a bit ridiculous, but by working on group cohesion, PSG also wants to demonstrate that the players, however powerful they may be, no longer make the law and must now put themselves at the service of the collective. We will see if all this has any effect on sports performance in the Champions League.
