Christophe Galtier, the recently appointed head coach of Paris Saint-Germain, has introduced a new set of rules at his new workstation.

Galtier took over the hot seat from the sacked Mauricio Pochettino and is keen on imparting his ideologies to his star-studded squad from the onset. He is currently with his team on a preseason tour of Japan.

Marca reports that the former Nice and Lille head coach has received the backing of the new director of football, Luis Ocampos, to see what he deems fit with the squad.

The first rule he has introduced is that any player who arrives late for training without any valid reason will be denied entry to the club's facilities and sent back home.

Galtier has also banned the use of mobile phones during team meals. The French coach believes that the squad should use that time during team meals to know each other and bond well.

The team meals will also be taken as a group going forward. The players have in the past separated themselves into groups.

Like any other head coach before him, Galtier has been tasked with the responsibility of leading PSG to Champions League glory. The closest they have come was in 2020 when Thomas Tuchel led them to the final.
