After just one year at the helm of Paris Saint-Germain, Christophe Galtier was let go at the beginning of the summer.
After several weeks of rest, the French coach decided to return to work in Qatar, where he recently joined Al Duhail SC.
This Tuesday, the former PSG coach began his Asian Champions League campaign with a match against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr. The Saudi team won the encounter 4-3, with CR7 scoring twice and providing an assist.
“He remains the best player in the world” During a press conference on Friday, Christophe Galtier was asked to comment on the performance of the Portuguese star. This gave the Marseille native an opportunity to pay a heartfelt tribute to the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who, according to him, “remains the best player in the world,” as reported by Football.
“When facing Ronaldo, there’s not much to do. He scored two magnificent goals. Words fail me to describe it. What he did is extraordinary for a 38-year-old player. He remains the best player in the world,” Galtier declared, who once coached a certain Lionel Messi.
