Before the arrival of Christophe Galtier, Nasser Al-Khelaifi made it apparent that the PSG would undergo certain changes. Even on a team that included Neymar, Messi, Mbappe, and even Sergio Ramos, the issue was comprehending that the club was superior to everyone else.
At the first press conference given by the technical director, the message was unmistakably in that vein.
Having Luis Campos, the new sporting director, on his side, the coach made it plain that he would not be relinquishing control of the decision-making process.
However, it was vital to follow up with deeds after the initial verbal exchange.
After consulting with Luis Campos, the head coach of Paris Saint-Germain, and then with the players, the coach has instituted new dressing room rules, which have already been implemented in Japan as part of their current trip.
Marca has been told by insiders at PSG that nearly all of these restrictions are intended to increase the importance placed on discipline. Consider this to be the most crucial.
Home is where the tardy people are.
PSG training facility, Camp des Loges, has a history of players arriving late, as anyone who has visited recently will attest. There was obviously a penalty for the lateness. You must arrive between 8:30 and 8:45 a.m. for Galtier’s bootcamp. And everyone who shows up late for no apparent reason will be turned away and be forced to return home.
Phones must be put away during meals.
Players will be unable to use their phones during meal times such as breakfast and lunch. Even though both Galtier and Campos believe that the team is a good one, the two men want a more fluid relationship between them. In order to maintain a positive vibe, they believe that living together more and using meals as a time to joke and share experiences with one another is the best way to do it.
Camp des Logs will host breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
When the new sports city in Poissy, which contains the first team’s home and the youth academy, is complete, this step will be much easier to implement. For breakfast and lunch on the majority of days, Galtier had already made it known.
In recent years, the Paris Saint-Germain dressing room has been divided into tribes or groups: Messi and Neymar, Mbappe and Achraf, Ramos and Keylor Navas, etc.
Exactly the kind of response you’d expect.
Neymar’s response and commitment caught attention in their first weeks of living together, with the club confirming the team’s excellent response. He looks to be preparing a retaliatory blow against his coach despite the fact that Galtier’s club put the Brazilian up for sale this summer.
“There will be norms of coexistence that I will offer to the group,” the coach said. Negotiable and non-negotiable items will be present. “I’ll talk to the players about their responsibilities outside of the sport, but the extremely stringent laws must be observed,” he said.
“It will come organically,” he concluded. We’re not even in the military. I’d never make a decision without consulting others’ thoughts first. ‘ Having the support of my supervisor and the sports department is the most crucial thing. For the good of all, there must be justice and order in the locker room. Discipline within a group is essential for success.
