Galtier praises important man Neymar


Neymar marked his 100th appearance in France’s top division with a fifth-minute assist from Lionel Messi at the Groupama Stadium; that means he’s now been directly involved in 15 of his team’s 26 goals this season (with eight points and four assists).

The former Barcelona forward has taken his tally to 121 goals in Ligue 1 (77 goals, 44 assists) – more than any other player in his first century since Opta began analyzing the competition in 2006-07.

“He gives it [us] better balance,” Gaultier said of Neymar during his post-match press conference. “He has the ability to repeat efforts, he has volume, intensity. He is generous to the team.

“It gives a good balance. He is able to substitute himself and also has dazzling and technical quality. He is a great animator. Obviously, great players have to perform in a match like this.

“Neymar has worked hard for the team and he came out a bit agitated and angry. It’s normal. He has impeccable manners. He is sharp and has big ambitions for the season – both in the club and in terms of personal statistics.”

Despite ​​dominating possession for long periods, PSG had to fight off a determined Lyon in the second half to take maximum points and extend their winning streak to six matches in all competitions.

But while admitting his side could have been more clinical, converting just one of 15 shots on target, Galtier insists his side deserved to win.

“We knew it was going to be a tough game, but we played a very good game,” he added. “We can still regret the number of chances missed or stopped by Anthony [Lopes], who played a very good game. The number could be wider.

“As long as you’re 1-0 up, you’re not immune to a reaction, Lyon insisted.” But in general, in terms of the game, both in possession of the ball and in clear situations, in my opinion, we deserved to win. “
