Two weeks after its presentation to the press, Christophe Galtier’s speech seems to have quickly won over the entire Parisian group. A strategy supported by the sports adviser Luis Campos, new strong man of the club of the capital. Behind the scenes.
Studious atmosphere. In Tokyo, the Paris Saint-Germain group once again provided the show on Tuesday. On the program, a reception in the presence of all the local sponsors with hoop games or duck fishing. On stage, there were smiles when it was time to toast with the guests of the day. Among them: the champagne brand Collet, but also the designer of the manga Captain TsubasaYoichi Takahashi.
The workforce accepts the new rules
This joie de vivre is also already reflected on the training ground of the Chichibunomiya Rugby Stadium. “Before talking about egos, we have to talk about these players who want to win, have fun,” said Christophe Galtier in the auditorium of the Parc des Princes on July 5. These words quickly conquered the Parisian locker room. The former Nice coach wanted to impose rigor and well-being on the pitch as quickly as possible. It’s done.
These new rules, supported by Luis Campos, have already been accepted by the entire workforce. Proof of this is the lunch, as indicated by The Parisian, now set up at Camp des Loges before or after training sessions. A way to strengthen group cohesion.
The euphoria of the start of the season maintained
The 25 players present in Japan for the summer tour also discovered a little more about the sessions of Christophe Galtier and his staff. Like that of this Monday, in front of nearly 15,000 supporters, 1h30 long in suffocating heat.
These training sessions maintain the euphoria of the start of the season. The scenes on the spot do not deceive, with exchanges on tactics, regular replacements and the desire to move the ball ever faster. All in good humor. It remains to be seen whether this will happen again this Wednesday (12:30 p.m.) during the first friendly match in the Archipelago against Kawasaki Frontale.
