Nice-Strasbourg: Christophe Galtier’s self-criticism

Date:

OGC Nice is at a standstill. This Sunday, on the occasion of the 17th day of Ligue 1, the Aiglons conceded a third defeat (without scoring a goal) in a row to the Allianz Riviera against RC Strasbourg Alsace (0-3).

When I make this observation, I just believe in asking the real good questions. I can’t blame my players for not running, but when you see that they make a lot of effort and that makes this kind of match, with an inability to recover the ball, to defend by advancing, to catch the ‘partner’s error, on the defensive aspect, and that on the offensive aspect, it is very difficult to destabilize a defense, a team, a block, I must be the first to question myself on what I ask to the players that they no longer manage to do “.

Plagued by doubts in recent weeks, the Azureans are no longer able to express themselves collectively. A worrying situation for the current 4th in Ligue 1 leading to a sincere self-criticism of the former coach of the Mastiffs, reigning French champions: “I have to do my self-criticism and believe me, it is very harsh. I am solely responsible for what we no longer see. When we are there, it is a profound questioning of what should be our way of playing and approaching matches. Am I asking too much of my players? Are they able to do it? Should things be changed to regain confidence and be less readable by the opponent? Because each time, we are beaten on our weak points … “ In full negative spiral, Galtier is therefore trying to understand what his players lack but time is running out and the next day against Stade Rennais promises to be complicated …
