The 2022-23 season is in its final stage, and Paris Saint-Germain has one hand on the Ligue 1 title, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of drama to discuss involving the capital club.
On this episode of PSG Talking, I’m joined by Ethan from PSG Fan Club Boise to discuss the 3-1 win over RC Lens at the Parc des Princes. We also touch on the Christophe Galtier allegations, and debate the latest transfer rumors.
Up first, we recap the win over Lens. The match was hotly contested initially, with Lens giving PSG all they could handle, then in the 19th minute, Lens midfielder Salis Abdul Samed received a straight red after a dangerous tackle on Achraf Hakimi. Down to 10 men, the sting was taken out of the Lens attack, and PSG scored three goals in 9 minutes before halftime. We debate what we liked about the match, what we didn’t, and share our overall thoughts on the victory.
Next, we discuss PSG’s manager, Christophe Galtier, who is embroiled in controversy dating back to his time at OGC Nice in 2021. The alleged contents of a leaked email indicate that Galtier made racist and insensitive remarks during a meeting in 2021. While we don’t know if the contents of the email are accurate and Galtier has not only denied the allegations but taken legal action, we discuss how PSG should handle the situation and whether sacking Galtier is more difficult now.
We wrap up the show by discussing transfer targets and whether PSG should go all in for superstar Victor Osimhen, or sign several players instead to fill in the holes in the squad. We also share what we’ll be looking for during PSG’s final seven matches and we highlight former manager, Thomas Tuchel, who is having a rough go of it at FC Bayern Munich.
