An appointment that the new Parisian coach is looking forward to. “We do this job to compete and experience emotions. Training is one thing, interviews another, but we live for competition, we obviously lack competition. It’s the first game. We want to enter this championship and as best as possible“, he said this Thursday, at a press conference. Remember that PSG has already had a first official meeting with the Champions Trophy, won hands down against Nantes last Saturday in Tel Aviv (4-0).

And coach Galtier to continue: “It’s not excitement, there is an exciting side, but a real desire to enter the competition. The stadiums are often full when the PSG moves. It’s often THE game of the season for the team that receives us and there is therefore an environment that makes you face adversity. This is also what being the coach of PSG, leading this team. There is this desire to discover this.” To discover the warm atmosphere of the Parc des Princes, Christophe Galtier, 55, will however have to wait for the second day and the reception of Montpellier, on August 13.
