Lille coach backs PSG following recent criticisms they have received.

Paris Saint-Germain

who has been dealing with an injury crisis recently was under the fire of criticism despite their constant wins and their leadership on Ligue 1 table. Tuchel men who sit five points above


while dealing with a number of difficulties including the absence of their key-players, positive Corona tests, and suspensions were backed by Lille coach

Christophe Galtier

after receiving several criticisms.

"There are criticisms today of PSG that seem insane to me," Galtier told


. "We are hard on them.”

"They have been playing for a few weeks with a second team, which would be a good Ligue 1 team but which would not be champions. They are performing despite an incredible injury list.”

"It's more difficult in the Champions League, but when you have players like Mbappe and Neymar who are absent, it is normal that the team is less efficient.”

"Against Rennes, a team that plays Champions League, a very, very diminished Paris managed to win 3-0 without trembling too much.”

"I'm not here to defend Thomas, but it's tough. They have 10 or 11 out with this sequence of matches.”

"If we had 10 out, come back in two months and tell me what has happened in the meantime.”

"Besides, we are going to be faced with [an injury crisis]. We have Renato [Sanches] injured, Zeki [Celik] injured, two players who keep playing.”

"It happens with this incredible schedule."
