This is the end of this press conference.
He was a much less smiling Kylian Mbappé than the last time he appeared before the press, it was during his contract extension. He at least clarified his position “today” on the Pogba case, explaining that he prefers to choose to believe in Paul Pogba instead of his brother Mathias. He also clarified the nature of his relationship with Neymar. We’ll see them both on the pitch tomorrow night at RMC Sport 1 for PSG’s Champions League kick-off against Juventus.
On relations with Neymar
“It is the sixth year with Neymar. We have always had a relationship like this, based on respect, but sometimes with colder and warmer moments. It is the nature of our relationship that it is like this. I have a lot of respect for the player that he is. you have two players who have a strong character like that, you have moments like that, but always with respect and in the interest of Paris St Germain.
On penalties, who will shoot?
“We’ll see, there’s always a discussion. We have to see how the game goes. We’re not both close. 1 doesn’t mean you take all the penalties, that doesn’t exist in any club”. , and much less when you play with 3 players like that. We’ll see tomorrow, but there are no problems with that.”
“You have to accept, even if it’s not easy to do. The coach knows that as a striker you want to play and score, but the coach has a more global vision. If you think that when I leave I’ll have the banae, I don’t want it, but you have to accept the coach’s decisions, he is the captain of the ship”.
Does it correspond to what happens to the project sold at the time of the extension?
“It is neither the place nor the time. We are here for a Champions League match and it is better to talk about a Champions League match”. It’s a weird way to dodge the question.
On the Pogba case and his relationship with Paul Pogba
“No, today I’d rather trust a partner’s word. Today it’s his word against his brother’s word. I’m going to trust my partner. This is not the time to add anything to him, I’m pretty detached from all of that.” .
About Ashraf Hakimi
“He must maintain these demands. This year he came back with other daily demands. He knows the club is counting on him. It’s up to him to continue like this.”
Place now for Kylian Mbappé and the many controversies
“The start of the season has been a success, although I think it could have been better, although I had to prepare against time. You have to know how to distinguish between what happens on and off the field. The most important thing is to help the team.”
On private jet and train travel?
The controversy of the moment. Galtier laughs. “I suspected that we were going to have this question there. This morning we spoke with the company that organizes the trips and we will see if we cannot move on a sand yacht”
“Regarding the hierarchy, it is like this. I am happy with Gigio’s performance. Keylor is available to the team if there is a need, but I am happy with Gigio.”
A little extra pressure in this competition?
“No, no extra pressure. I really want to play it, show what we’re capable of. I didn’t say no pressure, I said no extra pressure.”
“I am confident in our ability to play and play to win. The players are beginning to find their bearings. We will have to insist on our attacking animation to create as many dangers as possible for Juventus.”
What we fear in Juventus
“There are very high-level players, a coach who knows this competition very well. It is very difficult to maneuver.”
Vitinha apt to start
“He did the whole tactical session and oppositions.”
The favorite PSG of the competition?
“No, that would be very reductive compared to the other competitors. Every year, 8 or 9 teams believe they can win the Champions League, many times they don’t go all the way, there are surprises, incredible scenarios. That the club has the ambition to win is legitimate. That we are favourites, I don’t think so.”
It is the beginning of the press conference, we start with Galtier
Who does not hide his pleasure. “I realized after our victory in Nantes that the players projected quickly in tomorrow’s match. It’s the first time I’ve seen the players project so quickly in a match, either collectively or individually. There is a desire to start this competition, with a magnificent poster.”
Vitinha, touched, is in the group but trained separately. For his part, Ángel Di María is not in the Juventus group and will miss his reunion with the Parc des Princes.

Why Kimpembe will not be sanctioned against Juventus
Despite his three yellow cards received last season in the Champions League, Presnel Kimpembe will not be suspended for Juventus Turin’s reception on Tuesday night.
Article 52.05 of the Champions League regulations states that “bans not served as a result of repeated bookings and single bookings issued in the UEFA Champions League […] they are annulled at the end of the season.” The three yellow cards received by Presnel Kimpembe last season are thus annulled, unlike the red inflicted on Alexis Sánchez with Inter, during the round of 16 against Liverpool.
