Mauricio Pochettino soon to be sacked, it is Christophe Galtier who will succeed him on the bench PSG. The French technician, number one choice in the mind of Luis Campos from the start, will face the most monumental challenge of his entire career. A choice of the red and blue direction which also pushes certain observers to question themselves. However, the former coach of Saint Etienne Where Lille still has its supporters.

Among them, we find in particular Alain Perrin. The former coach of theOL or of Saint Etienne knows perfectly Christophe Galtier for having had him as an assistant from 2004 to 2009.

With a dimension that stands out implicitly: pragmatism.

He knows what he can’t do.”

“He’s a pragmatic person who knows what he can’t do. He is not utopian in his ideas, and yet he has good ideas about the game. He likes to have possession of the ball and spectacular football that scores goals. (…) The foundations of a team are all the same recovering the ball, defending well and conceding as few chances as possible. Then, you have to have the technical quality and the talent to benefit from offensive creativity. When he has the players available, he will be able to produce this system of play. (…) He is pragmatic, he likes this 4-4-2 system which offers him a lot of possibilities and confidence because everyone works in the recovery to square the ground well. (…) It won’t get in the way because he knows how to adapt. He has experience as a coach and as a player to be able to change the system. What he wants is to put the players in the best possible conditions. »
