The Paris Saint Germain (PSG) team presented its new technical director on Monday, Frenchman Christophe Galtier, who replaces Argentine Mauricio Pochettino.

The new strategist arrived with the optimism of “assuming the challenge”, as he referred to it, at the head of a team full of stars, but with some commotion due to the rumors that they could leave Neymar.

The French coach (55 years old), who according to a source close to the case was committed for two seasons, appeared before the press dressed in a dark suit and a gray tie in the Parc des Princes, just before a first scheduled training session on Tuesday afternoon.

“I am excited and proud,” Galtier said, according to the AFP agency, after arriving with PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

“I accurately measure the responsibility that has been given to me, that PSG have a great season. I have prepared for it. If I have accepted these responsibilities, it is because I am capable of facing them”, added the coach.

The new coach was emphatic about the versions that run about a hypothetical departure of Neymar.

Galtier cut off speculation, stating that he wants the striker to “stay” at the club.

“Obviously, I want Neymar to stay, because when you have world-class players it’s better to have them with you than against you,” he said.

The French coach also warned that there will be no player who is above the group, so his team “will be very solid, demanding, determined, to have the best season possible”.

“If there were, unfortunately, players who do not follow these guidelines, from the moment they do so, they will be removed,” he added.

“No player will be above what the group and the position of the group should be,” insisted the coach in his presentation to the press, stating that he hopes to have a “reduced” squad.

Galtier came from Nice, where he spent a year after having previously won Ligue 1 with Lille, where he managed the Côte d’Azur team to finish fifth in the championship, as well as being a finalist in the Coupe de France.
