Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) coach Christophe Galtier has praised Neymar’s professionalism and revealed that the Brazilian is always available in training.
Neymar was in outstanding form for PSG in the 2022/23 season, impressing the crowd not only with his goals but also with his creativity. The former Barcelona ace has made 16 appearances for Galtier this season, recording 12 goals and nine assists in all competitions.
Speaking at a press conference ahead of the Ligue 1 game against Ajaccio, Galtier praised Neymar for his commitment and assured him that he was in top physical condition. The French manager said (via RMC Sport):
“Neymar manages to follow up because he has no problem and is very efficient. Regarding Neymar, he arrived on time, physically and mentally ready at the start of his preparation. He is always available during training. He is serious and fit. There are no secrets in football. If he’s good physically, muscularly it allows him to keep going.”
Unfortunately, Neymar will not make the trip to Corsica on Friday evening (October 21) as he is suspended due to a series of yellow cards. Sergio Ramos, who saw a straight red at the Stade de Reims two weeks ago (8 October), will also miss the game through suspension.
Christophe Galtier confirms PSG will play four defenders against Ajaccio
Christophe Galtier’s PSG have had a lot of success playing with three defenders this season. The Parisians have primarily opted for a three-man defense and are unbeaten in 11 Ligue 1 games, recording nine wins and two draws.
Against Ajaccio, however, Galtier is set to change things and confirm he will field a four-man defense in Corsica. Galtier said:
“It can be fresh [playing with four at the back]. I’m still thinking about the order of the games. We have a commitment to results. Everyone thinks the game will be easy for PSG, but we struggled in Reims. We play four in the back. That’s the only information I can give you.”
With Ramos suspended, Presnel Kimpembe recovering and Nuno Mendes out with a hamstring problem, it will be interesting to see which four defenders Galtier will field against Ajaccio on Friday.
