Christophe Galtier recently found himself at the center of a controversy after a bad joke thrown at a press conference in response to a question about PSG’s movements. For Bruno Genesio this is ridiculous.
Coaching PSG is not an easy task … Christophe Galtier has to manage the ego of his players, his compositions, his tactics but also his statements. Any misspelled word is immediately picked up and can cause controversy. This is what happened recently in the PSG-Juve pre-match. A reporter wanted Galtier and Kylian Mbappé to answer a question about the weather when PSG flew to Nantes in Ligue 1. It was then that the new manager of the capital club replied that next time they would consider going to the yacht sand. A bad joke that quickly turned into controversy. Observers, politicians, almost everyone went there with their little sentence.
Genesio flies to Galtier’s aid
Stunned to see Galtier’s hay for a joke (in good taste or not, judging it will all be) compared to all the international football executives’ pedophile scandals that I was able to release for two and a half years.
Meaning of the political / media battles …

A controversy that, however, annoys other football figures. This is the case of Bruno Genesio, who in the past few hours defended Galtier at a press conference. According to him, this is going too far. “The joke is in bad taste, but I think it has gotten too big. To see ministers take the floor to slap a coach or a player, when there was absolutely no desire to absolve themselves of responsibility in relation to all this, I know, I know Christophe very well, I found it ridiculous. We are all aware of the importance we must have, of the gestures we must make every day, and not just when it comes to moving. We all have a responsibility in this sense if we want to pass on a planet in good condition to our children, our grandchildren. There may be other ways of looking at things, and if we are where we are today, it may also be because our politicians have a slightly greater responsibility than a coach or a football player. “, indicated in particular by Bruno Genesio, annoyed by the environmental hypocrisy around the exit of Galtier. At the end of Tuesday night’s match against Juve, the former Lille manager agreed on an awkwardness, but also recalled that it was humor.
