Neymar’s future at Paris Saint-Germain looks uncertain, but the Brazilian star, already back in training, is going to get some special treatment from Christophe Galtier.
To everyone’s surprise, PSG followers saw the arrival of Neymar at Camp des Loges from Tuesday, while the Seleçao striker was expected next Monday. Of course, all this comes at a time when the departure of the former FC Barcelona player is being discussed more and more intensely, following the words of Nasser Al-Khelaifi two weeks ago in an interview. Since then, and while Neymar was claiming from Brazil that all this was false, there was talk of contacts between the player’s father and Chelsea where the idea of bringing in the Paris Saint-Germain star was in the air. It is in this context that Neymar therefore returned to work, the very day when Christophe Galtier was officially inducted coach of the French champions. And that’s good, because number 10 was entitled to a very clear message from Mauricio Pochettino’s successor.
If he did not specifically mention the cases of Lionel Messi or Sergio Ramos, the former coach of OGC Nice made it clear that he was counting on Neymar this season, and that he had ideas to make the he Brazilian striker is not the ghost seen in recent seasons. ” Neymar is a world-class player, what coach wouldn’t want Neymar in his squad? There is a balance to be found in a team and that whatever the level in which you play. But I have a very precise idea of what I want from him. I have not yet met Neymar, and I will listen to his expectations. I want him to stay with us. When you have world-class players, it’s better for them to be with you than against you “Warned Christophe Galtier, who probably had the approval of Luis Campos before letting it be known that he was counting on Neymar. Because the Paris Saint-Germain coach has made it clear several times that it was Nasser Al-Khelaifi’s adviser who now managed all of this, including with regard to the stars.
Neymar kept at PSG? He will have to change
However, if Christophe Galtier is counting on Neymar, he does not want Neymar who is a tourist and not very involved in his club. And that too he made it clear. ” In relation to the defined objectives, we must have a common project without any compromise. I’m not going to revolutionize the locker room, I’m going to observe, listen and I know that I will have everyone’s support to make the decisions I should make from the moment one of the players, and whoever the player , will not comply with what the project is. There will be no compromise on this subject “warned the coach of the PSG, who hit the nail on the head during his first meeting with the players on the pitch at Camps des Loges. Facing his players, and away from the cameras, Galtier was clear according to Loïc Tanzi. The RMC journalist, who closely follows the news of Paris Saint-Germain, relayed the words of the new coach to his group: ” There will be no preferential treatment, only the pitch matters, no individualism and a collective that must be strong “. Neymar probably understood that the party was over at PSG. If this is not the case, he could quickly become disillusioned.
