Pointed out, Marco Verratti received the support of his trainer Christophe Galtier.
Less efficient this season – when he is in good shape -, he who has multiplied the physical glitches, Marco Verratti has not been spared criticism lately. Chouchou du Parc, the transalpine environment is targeted by a frank Parisian supporters, who go so far as to demand his departure. A departure that would run through the head of the Little Owl, according to certain rumors.
Present at a press conference this Friday, two days before his team’s trip to Auxerre, Christophe Galtier, judged the critics “a bit harsh” to Marco Verratti. Before that, he gave news of the Italy international, doubtful this weekend due to a contusion in his left knee.
“I think the criticism is a bit harsh”
“He took a blow to the knee which prevented him from training collectively, confided the Parisian coach. He trained individually. We will see on Saturday, but we are hopeful that he will be with us in Auxerre. Marco is a very important player, when he’s not there, it shows in the game. As the team has a moment, he had a shot less well. Our slump coincided with the absence of many executives. But I find that the criticism is a little harsh compared to what he does on the ground. »
