Chosen by Paris Saint-Germain for his talents as a scout, Luis Campos also arrived in the capital this summer to help Christophe Galtier restore discipline in the Parisian locker room. The new PSG sports adviser has already imposed several rules on the players.
Luis Campos learned discipline at PSG
New chapter, new rules. This summer, Paris Saint-Germain decided to launch a new project by bringing in Luis Campos, in a role of sports adviser, and Christophe Galtier, who replaced Mauricio Pochettino as coach. A duo that has been given an ambitious roadmap.
The two men, like their predecessors, still have the objective of winning as many trophies as possible for PSG, in particular this first Champions League after which the club from the capital has been chasing so much since the arrival of the Qataris in 2011. But the duo , who has already collaborated with Lille, has also been given the task of restoring discipline at the behest of the Paris workforce.
Latecomers are penalties of a ride home
At the dawn of the 2022-2023 season, the message is clear: Parisian players must be examples of professionalism. Which has not always been the case in recent years. Now, latecomers and some unprofessional jug components are banned. In any case, this is the idea on paper, and it will be necessary to see over time whether the new PSG organization chart is capable of bringing this discipline back to the players.
To achieve this, Campos has already set the first rules. Thus, a player arriving late at the training center without a valid excuse is sent home, explains L’Equipe. According to the daily Le Parisien, the players now have the obligation to take their breakfasts and lunches with the whole team at the training center. And without their mobile phone. The objective is to spend a real convivial moment together, without outside distraction.
Create a new cohesion
The idea of Campos is to create a real cohesion between all the players and to put an end to the clans, generally composed of elements having the same language or culture. For this, all players must spend as much time as possible together and present themselves as soon as an opportunity arises. The manager also wants to put in place a code of good conduct between players, in addition to the charter of ethics signed by each Parisian recruit.
Just present, these new rules are well received in the locker room. According to the feedback, the Parisian players have developed a great accomplice since the recovery. All seem to adhere to this objective of discipline during this period of summer preparation. But this is only the beginning. And it will be necessary to see if the membership is still total in a few months, when the season will be well launched and the choice of Galtier could be some unhappy.
