Sacked by Paris Saint-Germain and replaced by Christophe Galtier, the Argentinian returned to his experience with the capital club in the Argentine press.
It was one of the many soap operas of this summer: who was going to take the place of Mauricio Pochettino? While Zinedine Zidane was announced on the side of PSG, it was finally Christophe Galtier who took the place of the Argentinian.
Interviewed by the media Infobaethe former player and coach of Paris Saint-Germain returned to his departure.
“I’m calm, I accept the circumstances we had to go through. It all ended quite late. We signed the termination of the contract one day before the start of the pre-season, between July 3 and 4, and it is clear that it is difficult at the moment because all the projects are closed for me.
I adapt to new circumstances and I always have in mind to progress and above all to analyze everything that has happened in the last 18 months at Paris Saint-Germain and, as we always say, the experience must be used to progress, he added before taking stock. I think it was very positive in view of his 18 months in Paris. In sporting terms, we have won the Cup, the Supercup and the Championship in a year and a half, but it is clear that PSG’s project is to win the Champions League and not winning it can always be considered a failure. (…) But sometimes in football there are factors that cannot be controlled. did he declare.”
That’s not all. The former Tottenham coach also took the opportunity to return to the elimination of PSG against Real Madrid in the Champions League.
“I think Benzema’s foul on Donnarumma existed and if it had been reviewed by VAR, today we would be talking about Madrid’s elimination. But it was a trigger that gave Real Madrid a lot of faith , a different energy on their pitch, but that’s football and it shouldn’t be analyzed beyond football, it’s a game in which, many times, the luck factor and obviously the emotional factor play a role ( …) I believe we did a job in which we were honest, we worked as hard as we could and we had this misfortune in the last minutes against Madrid”.

Finally, the native of Murphy mentioned the level of Ligue 1 as well as the pressure he received from the Parisian public.
“Dominating the French championship or national competitions means that the fans themselves do not give him the importance he deserves (…) So I think he is underestimated, that he is not not valued but of course winning is an obligation and if you don’t win it looks like a total disaster There is no excitement in winning either It’s all focused on the Champions League and sometimes that distracted a bit”
Note that the technician has still not found a new challenge.
