« It twists the neck of French bashing »
And it is the other French Ligue 1 coaches who have stepped up to the plate to Christophe Galtier. During an interview with the Figaro, Philippe Montanierat the head of Toulousenotably dropped: “ I’m glad he’s at PSG, it’s a blow to the »French bashing ». In 2018, Deschamps won the World Cup with the Blues, Zidane the Champions League with Real Madrid, Rudi (Garcia) was in the Europa League final with OM… French coaches are not the best in the world, but aren’t that bad either « .
» It makes me very happy ! »
Before Montanier, Antoine Kombouaré had also gone from his big comment on the appointment of Christophe Galtier to PSG. The coach of FC Nantes explained: » What I think he is today the coach of PSG? It doesn’t make me happy, it makes me very happy! I told him by the way. Firstly because he is a French coach, but also because he is a very good friend. I’ve heard people say: “Yes, but he’s from Marseilles…” But who cares about that. He is very proud, very happy, to have the chance to train Mbappé, Messi, Neymar, Ramos, Marquinhos… It is a gift that we offer him, it is up to him to make the machine shine. It would be a nice snub to see him win the Champions League. French coaches have nothing to envy to others. I am convinced that the majority of French coaches want Christophe to succeed « .
“I wish him the best”
Even on the side ofOGC Nicewe wished the best to Christophe Galtier following his departure from PSG. Dave Brailsforddirector ofIneos Sportsthe group at the head of Les Aiglons, explained: Christophe had a difficult opportunity to refuse with PSG, I wish him the best. The only thing I asked of him was to wear the Ineos Grenadiers jersey when he does his bike rides in Paris. His record speaks for him, he is a very good coach. But the style of play of the Aiglons was more inclined towards the offensive, towards the beautiful game, the return of Lucien Favre goes in this direction « .
