Christophe Galtier: 'We're disappointed'

The Paris Saint-Germain coach and Carlos Soler spoke to PSGTV about the draw against Stade de Reims in matchday 20 of Ligue 1 (1-1).


 "Of course we're disappointed, we're angry about the first half when we didn't show anything. We lacked rhythm and intensity. There were a lot of technical errors and Reims would have deserved to score the opener in that first half. I changed our midfield by bringing Marco Verratti on and moving Ney into the middle of the pitch more. It seemed like it was the right option. We scored the opener and created chances and then the sending off happened, which was deserved. But even 10v11 we worked very hard and created opportunities. A few minutes from the end we thought we could hold onto the result and then bang!

Very ironically we had a lack of experience in that moment 30 seconds from the end and we concede from a ball in behind in transition. That's really disappointing with the experience we have in the team. Was it the accumulation of all the hard work we put in with a man down in the second half? I don't know but of course this goal is very damaging."


"It was a very tough game. To start off, in the first half we saw the Reims managed to make it hard for us. We knew they would. We weren't able to break their defensive lines. In the second half, we were finally able to score, and we had a lot of chances. In the end, they got the draw with their last chance. They had chances. It's tough because we wanted to win and distance our rivals in the league because none of them won this weekend. It didn't happen tonight and it's up to us to get back to it in the next games that will be very important."
