OGC Nice: Christophe Galtier looks back on Lionel Messi’s debut in Ligue 1


After its surprise defeat against FC Metz (0-1) on Saturday night, OGC Nice had to give up its second place to Stade Rennais, winner of FC Lorient (2-0). And to relaunch, the task promises to be difficult since the Aiglons will move on the lawn of the Parc des Princes, Wednesday at 9 pm, to challenge the PSG, solid leader of the championship. Present at a press conference before this shock at the top of the table, Gym coach Christophe Galtier notably mentioned the case of Lionel Messi (34). If the septuble Ballon d’Or did not have a perfect start in the Parisian jersey despite its three assists against ASSE on Sunday (3-2), the former coach of the Mastiffs recalled the importance of the adaptation time necessary regardless of the standing of the player concerned.

“Lionel Messi has spent 99% of his career in a club, he arrived at 13 at FC Barcelona, ​​it is normal for him to take some time to adapt, to adapt to the club, to his partners, to the game model also to his life. Afterwards, as you said so well, maybe against Saint-Étienne it was difficult, the playing conditions were also not easy for him, the fact remains that on set pieces, he drops the balloons, he puts them where they need to be. It will be a real pleasure to meet him and I repeat once again, we are privileged to have this player in our championship, I enjoy watching him, I hope we will not see him too much on Wednesday evening.”
