“We’re all ready for Kylian’s return, me first. By deciding to remain at PSG, he despatched a really robust sign, confirmed his need to achieve success and be among the many first to win this magnificent trophy with Paris. Kylian is a pensable in-element (he insists on each syllable) of PSG. Final season, he led PSG in an unbelievable approach. He will likely be again on this naturally robust trio. Cannot wait to see what he’ll give. “
On the Mbappé extension
“When he stretched, I did not know I used to be going to teach PSG. Above all, I used to be very completely satisfied for Ligue 1. I’ve at all times been very completely satisfied to see the arrival of nice gamers like Messi, Neymar, Ramos and others. Earlier than them. It’s. very optimistic for Ligue 1, for PSG. And some weeks later, after all, I used to be even happier together with his selection (laughs). “
On the duty to talk French
“I’m going again to the obligations as a result of the whole lot I hear bothers me slightly! I, at group stage, communicate solely in French. This doesn’t stop me from asking my employees to translate some issues to keep away from misunderstandings. However there isn’t a obligation to talk French within the locker room. There are Argentines, Portuguese, Spanish … Why ought to they communicate French? I labored overseas. After I met a French-speaking individual, I spoke French to him. These obligations are pure fantasy! I even heard to say that I forbid telephones on the desk. That is not true! I solely ask them to show off the ringtones and to not reply on the desk. However nonetheless I do not prohibit them from watching a reside soccer match or to obtain an pressing name. In that case they make a name. signal and islander, no downside “.
On established guidelines
“We have additionally set guidelines on time slots, breakfast and communal lunch. However there isn’t a policeman to observe their each come and go. des Loges, you simply have to ascertain a couple of ideas to make it gratifying. The identical goes for timetables: everybody should be on time, in any other case accidents are created that danger annoying. For the respect of people who find themselves on time, I’m punctual, that is the premise “.
If he anticipated to see a gaggle the place everybody does what they need
“Under no circumstances. Final 12 months, despite the fact that I used to be centered on OGC Good, I heard sure issues … However I by no means thought I might find yourself in a brothel, ever! Solely right here I notice that the whole lot is extrapolated (smiles, ironic) Yesterday (Monday) for instance I discovered that Gana Gueye was in Liverpool for the medical examination when he had simply completed coaching with us. All this to say that I’m satisfied that you just can’t have an important season if you’re not addicted from a framework outlined by the sports activities administration, by the coach but additionally validated by the gamers “.
On the hierarchies within the workforce
“The one hierarchy I’ve established is the selection of the goalkeeper. It is tough for Keylor (Navas), however that is how I work, I did not need ambiguity. I want to decide on a no 1, then it is as much as him to be environment friendly, realizing that he (Donnarumma ) is pushed by an important goalkeeper, with an important document. As for the captain, it was clear for me to proceed with Marquinhos. For the vice captains, I feel extra of a gaggle of reference gamers, of “leaders” with profiles, backgrounds and completely different connections within the locker room. When I’ve to make choices about crew life or presumably a few participant who’s out of the field, I first speak to my managers. “
On his response to Campos
“I reply him: unbelievable, I am in. I did not hesitate a second. I made him repeat it anyway, to make sure he was speaking to me about PSG. He had simply informed me about an important venture. It was earlier than the final day of the match. championship, after I was taking part in a decisive match to ensure OGC Good completed fifth or higher, that I acquired the discover asserting Luis Campos at Paris Saint-Germain. There, I inform myself, that is the venture. “
If Campos is a “key” match in his profession
“I had heard, after I was in Saint-Étienne, that Luis had one eye on me and one other on Leo Jardim for the Monaco venture. After I determined to cease after eight years at Saint-Étienne, I noticed his arrival in Lille very rigorously. I even bear in mind asking Luis to satisfy him and present him my true need to work with him. Would I be in Paris at present if Luis wasn’t there? I do not assume so. We met one another, to work with him. collectively … (mimes a curler coaster), as in a pair, in truth. Luis and I complement one another, and when one in every of us intervenes within the space of competence of the opposite, he does so with nice respect “.
On their approach of working
“Luis defines, with the president, the sports activities coverage that the membership desires to implement. There I don’t intervene. With Luis and my employees we labored rapidly on the sport mannequin, on the group, with respect to the gamers who had been going to remain. We thought of one of the best ways to get them to play. After which there’s all this work he excels at, particularly the evaluation of the gamers who need to compose a squad to make the crew attainable. When Luis talks to me about Vitinha, I’ve three or 4 flash of him at Porto and he says to me: look, look. He is aware of find out how to analyze the strengths of a participant in a really exact approach, there’s numerous speak up there, about this puzzle now we have to do, and it is very tough, he is aware of what profiles I need, through which sector, in relation to such animation and such group, does he search for them, discover them, and I haven’t got 1 / 4 of an hour within the day after I take into consideration one thing aside from my group, ent coaching and group throughout, departures, arrivals , discussions with the brokers, no! It isn’t for me, and that is what I need. “
Sur le market
“I’m knowledgeable daily of the actions that will happen on the earth of labor. Once we go away for a brand new venture, when the gamers have been there for a very long time, we need to renew, deliver freshness and novelty. However I do not know who will go away, how the issues. The switch window is so difficult, so tough that I can’t let you know what is going to occur. The essential factor was to double our pistons with the flexibility of Nordi Mukiele. I’m not for doubling all positions I want to combine our greatest kids. having versatility permits to keep away from the doubling of positions “.
On the “undesirables”
“Particularly, we’re speaking about these gamers who’re known as undesirable. Do you notice this designation? We’re speaking about worldwide gamers, gamers who can go to the World Cup. No, they don’t seem to be undesirable! However there’s a need on the a part of the administration to alter issues. , to have a renewal. And on this context, we can’t accumulate gamers each time a brand new supervisor arrives. Ultimately, that one has made periods with 27, 28 parts. It’s tough to work, tough for the entire squad, however much more so. for individuals who have little time to play. Consider me, on a human stage, nothing was straightforward, however I needed to be frank and direct and, with Luis, to speak to the gamers rapidly to have time to show round, replicate on the state of affairs and never be blamed , a couple of days earlier than the switch market, for not telling them something. Am I proper or fallacious? Solely time will inform. However I am certain you’ll be able to’t work correctly with 28 subject gamers in coaching, or with six or seven very sad gamers in a dressing room “.
