Addressed by an activist holding a sign on which was written: “Climate in danger, Galtier complicit”the former coach of LOSC and OGC Nice wanted to respond to the individual, who was then evacuated from Studio 104 of the Maison de la Radio: “Dear Sir, do not confuse humour, which may be inappropriate or misplaced, with disrespect for the planet. I have a lot of respect for everyone. I am very careful. I have just made a two-day round trip with the SNCF to see my son who was having surgery.” While the environmental activist accused the PSG coach of having run an empty bus from Paris to Lyon, Christophe Galtier then added: “I prepared my team to win”implying by this sentence that he had no decision-making power over logistics at Paris Saint-Germain.

The conference was then able to end without a hitch between Christophe Galtier and the public present.
