PSG's Present Situation Is 'Not Acceptable' — Galtier

Christophe Galtier

Paris Saint-Germain's coach Christophe Galtier has expressed his disappointment with the team's recent performances, stating that their situation in Ligue 1 is "not acceptable".

PSG, who were ten points ahead in late February, now lead the table by only six points ahead of two important games.

On Saturday, they will face Nice, who are on a 12-match unbeaten run, followed by second-placed RC Lens.

If Lens win their match against Racing Strasbourg on Friday, they will move within three points of PSG.

"These are important matches. Nice are on a huge unbeaten run since (coach) Didier Digard took over.

Then we will be hosting Lens, but first, there is Nice," Galtier said at a news conference on Friday.

"We are all aware that we must do more, including myself. We must also show more personality and have a lot of pride.

"Our situation is not acceptable. We must not act, but react."

Galtier also warned that their lead in the table is not a guarantee they will win the title at the end of the season.

"We obviously have to get out of this spiral. There is an 11th title at stake for Paris St Germain. That's what I told the players, we have a six-point lead.

"But what do we do with these six points? Do we leave ourselves in a deadlock or do we react?"

Kylian Mbappe, who is suffering from hip pain, will be available for Saturday's game against Nice.

The forward criticized the club on Thursday after they featured him in a video to promote season ticket sales without informing him how the interview would be used.

Galtier said that the incident had been cleared up, but did not go into further details.

"It's very difficult to comment on, it concerns Kylian and the club. Kylian was in a very good mood this morning, he was smiling, he cut short the training session with hip discomfort, but it will not compromise his participation in the Nice game," said Galtier.

"I know there have been a lot of discussions between the management and Kylian. The incident, or misunderstanding, has been cleared up."
