Christophe Galtier may find it difficult to digest this defeat. After falling for the first time of the season on January 1 in Lens (3-1), Paris Saint-Germain conceded their second defeat of the season this Sunday in Rennes (0-1), at the end of the the 19th day of Ligue 1. Jostled by a solid and valiant Breton formation, the Red and Blue showed a very pale face at Roazhon Park, like Lionel Messi and Neymar, transparent. At the microphone of Prime Videothe PSG coach did not mince his words. “I am above all disappointed, disappointed with our performance. We have already conceded a lot of situations and above all, we have created nothing. We had very few favorable situations, except maybe a little at the end when we pushed in a disorderly way. We focused on getting possession of the ball.”first launched Galtier, before going into details.

“We had too many players who fell between the lines without having players high enough to fix the Rennes defensive line. We knew we could be exposed to counters and transitions. I had taken the option of playing with 3 central defenders, the offensive sector would have had to be higher, more in contact with the Rennes defense, even if the Rennes block was very compact. And that our pistons, when they had made the difference, could have people in the surface. There are far too many game situations that haven’t been chances, because there was a total lack of presence in the penalty area. »

“We still did a lot of ball pushing tonight”

The 56-year-old French technician then pointed to his two established stars, unlike Kylian Mbappé, the last member of the MNM who only returned in the 55th minute. “There is always a plan for my two players, whether it’s Ney or Leo, but we must also be able to find other options. Do we have to completely unhook to animate the game? If Leo wins, we need to have a lot more attachment points up there, we didn’t have any. Ney and Leo stalled together in crowded areas. There was possession, but very few attacking situations.he explained.

Frustrated after the insufficient performance of his team, Christophe Galtier then discussed the points on which his players would have to work in the coming days. “We will have to find the right balance, percussion. When we gave, we did not offer. There has never been a vertical game. We have to find him. At the moment, we have an absence of verticality in our game, whether it comes from the sides, through our pistons, but also inside the game. When we have given the ball, we have to offer, be much more in motion. We still did a lot of ball pushing tonight. »

Galtier does not want to think about Bayern

To conclude, the former LOSC coach once again stressed, as in a press conference earlier in the week, that the cut linked to the World Cup had broken something in his team. Before being positive. “We had two sessions to work with everyone collectively. We will have time to work and find our principles of play with a lot more verticality and have a better attacking animation, with support and midfielders coming from the back lines so that we have the connection with our 3 attackers. Am I worried about Bayern? The match is both close and far, we will mainly focus on the matches we have to play, and find a lot more verticality and percussion in our game. “ Galtier will have work.
