Attached to a system of four defenders, coach Christophe Galtier is considering reviewing his plans to switch to a three defense at Paris Saint-Germain. Objective: to place Lionel Messi in the best conditions.
Christophe Galtier is still not officially the coach of PSG.
The formalization is dragging on due to the difficulties encountered by Paris Saint-Germain to find a separation agreement with Mauricio Pochettino, but there is no longer any doubt: Christophe Galtier will be the next coach of the capital club.
The technician is already there to finalize the contours of his two-year contract plus an optional year… and work on next season.
Finally the defense of three Paris?
As such, L’Equipe tells us this Sunday that the native of Marseille is in full reflection on his future game system. It’s no secret that the Azuren is a big fan of 4-4-2. With the departure for the moment uncompensated for Angel Di Maria, this organization seems too unbalanced and unlikely in the state Paris and we could more expect to see Galtier opt for a 4-2-3-1 or a 4 -3-3. According to the same source, the future Parisian coach could however surprise us.
Indeed, Galtier would consider reviewing his plans and could be tempted by a three defense! With Marquinhos, Presnel Kimpembe, Sergio Ramos and perhaps soon Milan Skriniar available, it is true that this system is quite tempting and Pochettino tested it himself at the end of the season when Ramos was available. Offensive, the side Achraf Hakimi and Nuno Mendes could also benefit from it. For the defector from Nice, this organization would above all aim to get the best out of Lionel Messi who would thus be completely relieved of defensive tasks thanks to a reinforced axis. After a lackluster first season in Paris, Galtier intends to fully exploit the potential of the Pulga.
Galtier ready to adapt
Often presented as dogmatic, the 55-year-old coach seems willing to show flexibility this time. His choices will be dictated by the profile of the players under his responsibilityexplains a former collaborator of Galtier, while ensuring that he has a very high adaptability. Of course, this is the reflection at the moment T: the resumption from July 4, the evolution of recruitment and the various preparation matches will undoubtedly open up new prospects for the future Parisian coach, who will perhaps have completely changed from here to July 31, date of the Trophe des Champions, the first official match of the 2022-2023 season against FC Nantes.
