Olympique Marseille vs. PSG: Christophe Galtier pre-match press conference
What are your thoughts on the training session open to the public at the Parc des Princes?
"It had been planned for a while. It was not linked to (current, bad) results. This is an important moment for our supporters who will be deprived of the trip to the Stade Velodrome. They have been exceptional since the start of the season, even in difficult times. Against Lille, when the match turned ugly, the public did not give up and instead pushed the team to seek victory."
"[The open training session] was also a moment of sharing. Thanks to the school holidays, there were families in the stands. Our Ultras were omnipresent and noisy, but there were also a lot of families, employees, ticket-holders… That's a good thing. It allows you to break a routine… I don't know if we needed it but it also allows you to show the importance of the next match."
Do you have a message to send to the supporters before the next meetings?
"When we don't have the desired result, a draw or a defeat, everyone is affected, concerned. People think that players can forget about a defeat in five minutes, but that is not true. I see it every day in the locker room. The players have great respect for the supporters, so when there is a victory it is often dedicated to them."
