Georginio Wijnaldum, Idrissa Gueye, Rafinha, Thilo Kehrer, Julian Draxler, Ander Herrera, Layvin Kurzawa or even Mauro Icardi, many are the undesirables of the Paris Saint-Germain side during this summer transfer market. A term that has, however, the gift of annoying Christophe Galtier, questioned on this subject in an interview given to the parisian. “Precisely, we are talking about these players who call themselves undesirable. Do you realize this name? We are talking about international players, players who can go to the World Cup. No, they are not unwanted! But there is a will on the part of the management to change things, to have a renewal. And in this context, we cannot stack the players every time a new coach arrives. In the end, that makes sessions with 27, 28 items”first launched Galtier before explaining this desire to slim down in more detail.
“It is difficult to work, difficult for the whole squad, but even more so for those who will have very little playing time. Believe me, on a human level, nothing was easy. But I wanted to be frank and direct and, with Luis, talk quickly with the players so that they have time to look back, reflect on the situation and not blame us, with a few days until the end of the market. , for not telling them anything. Was I wrong or right? Only the future will tell will say. But I’m sure you can’t work well with 28 outfield players in training, or with six or seven very unhappy players in a dressing room.”.
