When he coached Paris Saint-Germain, Christophe Galtier did not hide his admiration for Lionel Messi, whom he considered the best in the world. After 4 months, his outlook changed after meeting Al-Nasr, led by Cristiano Ronaldo.
” I had the honor of coaching the best player in the history of football », Thus, Christophe Galtier bid farewell to his position as coach of Paris Saint-Germain last June, but especially to Lionel Messi. Although he only stayed in charge for one season, Galtier was happy with his experience only because of his collaboration with Messi. If some followers appreciated this honor from the Parisian coach, others saw only a simple polite expression. In fact, Galtier has struggled to establish control over La Pulga all season. Were they, in the end, just empty words?
Ronaldo is the best player in the world according to Galtier
We’ve been tempted to believe so since Tuesday evening. The new coach of Qatari club Al-Duhail, Galtier found Saudi club Al-Nassr in the AFC Champions League. On the other hand, Messi’s old rival Cristiano Ronaldo caused his team suffering, as he scored a wonderful brace. In front of journalists, Galtier did not hide his admiration for the Portuguese. It even placed him at the top of the global hierarchy ahead of Lionel Messi.

” Against Ronaldo, there is not much to do. He scored two wonderful goals. Words cannot describe what he has done is exceptional for a 38-year-old player. He remains the best player in the world “, he said of CR7. Did Christophe Galtier have a message to send to Messi with this statement? We don’t know, but one thing is certain, changing your mind repeatedly will not have the same effect in the long term.
