Galtier would field his strongest 11 against non-league side Pays de Cassel as 'It would be silly to rotate'

The French tactician looks to get PSG back on form after some disappointing results recently.

PSG boss, Cristophe Galtier claimed that he will play his “best team’ even against non-league side Pays de Cassel in Coupe de France since he wants to get PSG back into winning ways.

The favorites


will play Pays de Cassel at a neutral venue of Stade Bollaert-Delelis which belongs to Lens. Having lost their last two away games, Galtier wants to show their attacking prowess, especially after the 5-4 victory they had against Riyadh All-Stars in a friendly that saw Ronaldo and Messi perhaps face off for the last time on the pitch.

"It is a big match and a historic moment for an amateur club,"

he said ahead of tehir match with Pays de Cassel. 

"We are preparing seriously for it.

"We will play our best team. There won't be rotation. We need to get through this tie and the team needs to play at its best. I am working hard with the players to be focused on the mistakes that we need to correct.

"Especially in the style of play that we would like to have, we are looking for intensity and a direct approach. We have lost this in the last few weeks.

"In terms of wanting to press and win the ball as quickly and as high up the pitch as possible, there have been below-par performances in recent weeks, so we need to think about that.

"Both in terms of our setup and ability to press in the last few games, we haven't managed to do that for various reasons.

"The sooner we can get our intensity, rhythm, link-up play back, the better, particularly with only one game per week. It would be silly to rotate in certain positions."

Galtier went on to give an update on

Presnel Kimpembe

’s injury, saying:

"Of course, we hope to have Kimpembe in the coming weeks. He is scheduled to be in full training in eight or 10 days, and we will see how he feels.

"He is working very hard. Of course, he is a big loss for us. We know how important Kimpembe is in terms of his level of play, his ability to lead the defence."
