Manager Christophe Galtier has expressed his disappointment after PSG’s latest Champions League defeat, citing the team’s lack of discipline at the highest level and injuries to defenders Marquinhos and Nordi Mukiele. The under-pressure PSG man spoke to RMC Sport after the game.
PSG’s elimination from the competition after a 2-0 defeat against Bayern Munich (0-1 in the first leg) has marked the start of an inquest at the club. It was the second year in a row that PSG were eliminated at this stage of the competition.
Galtier criticised his players’ lack of discipline, particularly when Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting opened the scoring in the 61st minute after Marco Verratti had lost the ball.
“We had a good first half where we had situations. We were able to compete well, we had some good moments. (…) But in the second half, we conceded this really stupid goal. I’m not sure I’ll be able to do anything about it, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to do anything about it,” he said. “We were obviously under pressure from Bayern, we knew that. We had to be ashamed of playing long to break that pressure.”
“We had a lot of important absentees in the first game, a lot of important absentees in the second game. We had to change central defenders, obviously that weakened us.”
