Marseille 0-3 PSG: Galtier thinks "PSG behaved like champions"

2 of 4

Is it a successful collective performance?

"Yes, we had a really good game. I went back to an organization that had worked for us the first four months and I also chose it in relation to the Coupe de France match that we lost to OM. They knew how to use the ball, and harass our team when necessary."

"It's an important victory which should cheer up our players and our supporters, who were omnipresent against Lille and all week with us, especially at the Parc on Friday (in the open public training session), even though they couldn't make the trip to Marseille (the authorities banned PSG fans from attending Sunday's game). We dedicate this victory to them."

Will you keep this system with three center-backs through the end of the season?

"The first idea was to go back to three with Presnel Kimpembe, but he unfortunately got injured. It was important to have a left-footed defender in my three-man line. Danilo was very good but I put him on the right and Marquinhos on the other side."

"The wing-backs must also be available. Nordi Mukiele had not played in six weeks and we knew he was going to have to gear up slowly. Nuno Mendes is a modern (overlapping) wing-back."

"We built the squad at the start of the season for this system. The absence of Neymar forced us to crowd the midfield. You also need midfielders who project the team and Vitinha and Fabian Ruiz have done that, freeing up spaces for Leo Messi and Kylian Mbappe. We will see if we stay in this system, but having won 3-0 at Marseille, it's not that we are going to invent things for the future."
