Christophe Galtier thanks the PSG supporters for their warm welcome

Christophe Galtier thanked the supporters for their warm welcome at the Parc des Princes. PSG made the show on Saturday for their first home game of the season.

Speaking to PSG TV after the victory, Galtier expressed his gratitude to the home supporters.

“Thank you to the fans. It was a warm welcome. The stadium was packed; there was a great atmosphere. But the players were also keen to start well at home, and we had to show the same face as in the previous two matches , at the Trophée des Champions and in Clermont,” said Galtier.

The French coach then analyzed the match and said he was satisfied with the performance of his team.

“I found the team very interesting in the game, with a real desire to score goals, to combine with each other. We brought a lot of danger to the opposing goal. There was a little slack, or a little physical slip for 10 minutes, where it was more difficult to make coordinated and collective efforts, ”says Galtier.

He added:

“It gave opportunities to Montpellier. It’s probably related to both the heat and the physical condition of the players. It’s very hot at the moment in training. But overall we are obviously very satisfied. We scored five goals; we could have scored more. This is a good sign for what lies ahead.

However, Galtier would like to see improvements at the back as his team failed to keep a clean sheet.

“There are still these two goals that we conceded, which is never good. The goalkeeper and the defenders had a good attacking game. Obviously, there are grumblings on the defensive side when we concede goals; there there was this relaxation due to a small physical slip, but overall we are happy with this victory to have scored 5 goals, ”said Galtier.
