Christophe Galtier is “really worried” about Paris Saint-Germain’s prospects when they face Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday.
With Lionel Messi joining Kylian Mbappe on the sidelines due to injury, PSG slumped to a 3-1 defeat at the latter’s old club Monaco on Saturday.
It marked PSG’s third defeat from their last seven Ligue 1 matches.
Galtier placed Achraf Hakimi and Sergio Ramos on the bench, while he confirmed a virus had struck the camp, with Fabian Ruiz also absent.
Bundesliga champions Bayern, 3-0 winners over Bochum on Saturday, head to the Parc des Princes for the first leg of a Champions League last-16 tie next week, and Galtier is concerned.
“There was a lack of intensity. It is the current state of the team. I can’t hide behind that,” he said in a press conference.
“The state of the team is like this. It is strange but true. It is bizarre to say that as a PSG manager, but it is the current reality.
“I am worried about the match on Tuesday night. If I wasn’t that’d be something serious. We’ll see if some of those that couldn’t start the match will be able to play on Tuesday.
“We have a very weakened team and we’re worried. In this period, you have to stay clear-headed. I understand the fan’s anger. There is anger.”
The match is over.
