LIVE – PSG-Auxerre: “A perfect afternoon”, Galtier in heaven after the Parisian manita

Christophe Galtier on Ekitike: “He was chomping at the bit, he was in frustration”

Present at a press conference, Christophe Galtier congratulated Hugo Ekitike after his first goal in the colors of PSG.

“Hugo had asked to talk with me. It’s very structured the way we had our exchange. He was chomping at the bit, he was frustrated. I told him to take advantage of every moment in the sessions and be in contact with the best players in the world. I told him that he was in an incredible squad. Progress comes through games and minutes played. When you’re in this kind of squad, progress also comes through training sessions. He had taken a blow to morale when he had not been established in Reims. He had let go at that time and that can be understood. The work of the staff (technical and medical) and mine was to remobilize him so that he regains the motivation to train. Session after session, he has recovered in the requirement, in the intensity and he was able, through the sessions, to connect with our great players. He takes the rhythm and benchmarks. For an attacker, he was unhappy in Lorient. He had situations even if he was behind the first goal we scored. This afternoon he came in and he scored. It’s very good for him. He was waiting for this first goal at the Parc des Princes. I saw his partners very happy for him and that’s a good sign.”

Galtier evokes a “perfect” afternoon

Christophe Galtier at the microphone of Prime Video: “The afternoon is perfect. I can’t even say almost perfect, it’s perfect. We only conceded one chance, we had a serious match, all the everyone wanted to play this match, no one was particularly concerned about the World Cup. It was probably me who was the most. That’s why I wanted to relieve Ney, Leo… Kylian stayed on the lawn but he is 23 years old. Ney had also stopped in the middle of the week during a session, Leo was coming back from an overload in the calf. I am happy with the entries of Renato and Hugo.

His next few weeks? “I’m going to take advantage of my family, my granddaughter. And then I’m going to Doha for four days to see three matches, including the match for the France team, alongside my president and my leaders.”

“It’s in the head”: the reassuring message from Kimpembe before finding the Blues

Presnel Kimpembe at Prime Video’s microphone: “I’m doing very well, I had the chance to play again for a few minutes, it feels good. Nothing to say. The weather is nice, there are people, it was a good match , we take advantage. My rhythm? I am very good, otherwise I would not have been able to play a few minutes. I played again without apprehension. I prepared myself well for that. It is true that I had difficult moments with these injuries, but if I returned to the field it means that everything is fine.

Did he doubt? “Doubted? No. I’m someone who likes to move forward day after day, I don’t like regrets, I always give the maximum to come back. It’s been done. The 90 minutes? It’s not a problem, It’s all in the head.”

Happy to go to the World Cup? “Of course we are happy. We have been thinking about this World Cup for a while, it was in the back of our minds even if we had obligations with the club. The first part of the championship is over, we will be able to focus on the France team. (On the injured) I’m not worried, there’s quality in this team, we’re lucky to have an incredible pool. Afterwards, it’s the coach who does his selection.”
