Heavily criticized for the start of the season chugging the Parisians, Thomas Tuchel saw Christophe Galtier take his defense.
Relatively spared from injuries since the start of the season, Lille has in turn paid a heavy price for the international truce. While the matches are linked at a frantic pace since the resumption, especially for internationals, Renato Sanches and Zeki Celik came back injured from their stay in selection.
A situation which provoked the anger of Christophe Galtier. ” It is the aberration of an incredible calendar. Those who made this international calendar have lost all reference to what high-level football is », He regretted in an interview with The team. It was also an opportunity for the Lille coach to be surprised by the criticisms recently suffered by Thomas Tuchel while the PSG accumulates downtime, whether due to injury, Covid cases, or fatigue.
“There are criticisms today on PSG that seem insane to me. We’re tough on them. They have been playing for a few weeks with a second team, which would be a good Ligue 1 team but which would not be champions. They perform well despite an incredible absentee list ”, he said, adding:“It’s more difficult in C1 but when you have players like Mbappé and Neymar who are absent, it is normal that the team is less efficient… Against Rennes, a team which plays the C1, a very, very diminished Paris arrives to win 3-0 without shaking too much! I’m not here to defend Thomas (Tuchel) but it’s heavy, they have 10 or 11 absent, with the sequence of matches… ”Words that will warm the heart of Thomas Tuchel.
