He has already dealt with this and knows what it is to manage great players. The Lille locker room also didn’t seem so easy to me with the Turks and a lot of internationals and young people like Bamba, Ikoné or Sanches. We had to compose and I think he proved that he was capable of managing this type of locker room (…) He is a very pragmatic person who knows what he cannot do. He is not utopian in his ideas and yet he has good ideas about the game, ”explains the former mentor of Galtier. 4-4-2, 4-3-3… What system with Galtier at PSG? will it be precisely Christophe Galtier’s game ideas for PSG, he who is a big fan of 4-4-2? Alain Perrin says: “He likes to have possession of the ball and spectacular football that scores goals. The foundations of a team are still recovering the ball, defending well and conceding as few chances as possible. Then you have to have the technical quality and the talent to benefit from offensive creativity. When he has the players available, he will be able to produce this game system (…) He is pragmatic. He likes this 4-4-2 system which offers him a lot of possibilities and confidence because everyone is working on recovery to cover the field well. He is also capable of playing in 4-3-3 as we did in Lyon. It won’t get in the way, he will be able to adapt because he has experience as a coach and a player to be able to change the system (…) He will also do this in consultation with the group’s executives because what interests him is to put people in the best possible conditions. He will know how to use the players in their strength and what they can do. He won’t ask a player to do what he can’t do. He is a consensual person, he will not try to impose visions that do not correspond to the choices of the players, ”says Alain Perrin. PSG players are therefore warned.
