PSG: new third goalkeeper, Letellier “found it hard to believe” at the club’s call
He is the surprise recruit of the summer transfer window of PSG. Alexandre Letellier, 29, is back in his training club (2000-2010) as a third goalkeeper and even though he was without a club, after his departure from Orleans. At the microphone of France Bleu Paris Tuesday, the doorman explains the details of this incredible return and the contacts with the Parisian sports management at the end of September.
“At the time, it is hard to believe it. When you’re unemployed, you never expect a call like that, admits Letellier. It is my agent at first who tells me that Paris is interested in my profile. We take a little time to realize. Once on the phone with the people at the club … You stop thinking and sign. I was exposed to the project and validated directly. There were no questions to ask. “
Recruited as number 3 to compensate for the departures on loan of young Garissone Innocent and Marcin Bulka, Alexandre Letellier fully accepts his role and is “ready” if necessary: ”I am asked to bring a good mood, ” have a smile all the time, a top state of mind and try to put my partners in the right mood. This role doesn’t bother me. “
Having left PSG in 2010 to roam between Angers, Young Boys (Switzerland), Troyes or Orléans, Letellier is savoring this return to his favorite club and the possibility of working with Keylor Navas or Sergio Rico, two very high level goalkeepers. “It’s great to be able to work with them. When you see their career and their professionalism, it’s a pleasure to work with people like that every day. Beyond the athlete, they are at the top humanly ”, exposes this great Parisian titi (1.93 m).
There remains one last step with the classic hazing among footballers: singing a song in front of the whole group. “During the first training, I took the slaps behind the head. But I haven’t gotten to the song yet. I hope they forgot me… ”smiles Letellier. See you in Nîmes on Friday?
