Paris Saint-Germain head coach Christophe Galtier explained why he sent Neymar to the bench after PSG beat Nantes 3-0 in Ligue 1 on Saturday.


What did Christophe Galtier say?

Brazilian striker Neymar has been in great form for Paris Saint-Germain this season but has been left out of the starting XI at Nantes. The French champions won alongside Messi, defeating French player Kylian Mbappe twice before Portugal’s Nuno Mendes finished third. Brazilian player Neymar was introduced for the final 27 minutes and replaced Kylian Mbappé.

Paris Saint-Germain head coach Christophe Galtier said they play a lot, every three days, then every four days. According to Christophe Galtier, everyone understands that they will not be able to play all 95-minute matches. The French manager says he has spoken about it twice. Christophe Galtier also said that the first time with each player, the second with the whole group, to tell them that it’s okay to be like that and that they should have the right attitude.


A little about the topic

PSG manager Christophe Galtier has cut his job keeping the Paris Saint-Germain superstars happy this season and already had to deal with the tension between Kylian Mbappé and Neymar regarding penalties. Neymar’s exit from the game came as a surprise challenge to Christophe and he was keen to point out after the match it was a matter of rotation due to the team’s busy schedule.

Paris Saint-Germain’s three goals against Nantes took their mark to 24 from six games, equaling the record (Man City in 2019-20 and Bayern Munich in 2020-21) for goals scored at this stage of the season in the 21st century by a team in the top five leagues in Europe.


What will happen after this for Paris Saint-Germain?

Christophe Galtier’s side will kick off their Champions League group stage campaign next with Italian giants Bianconeri arriving at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday.
