Lionel Messi arrived in France as a hero, viewed as the man who could bring the Champions League to Paris Saint-Germain. The Argentinian will leave the club without having achieved that goal and only having created his best streaks. Messi’s PSG time is difficult to call a success, regardless of the fact that the move to Paris helped him achieve the magnificence of the World Cup he was destined to win and did not harm the Qatar-owned club’s brand.
It was an enchanting conversation for PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi and the fans of the club, who were eager to see their team win European Football’s most prestigious award.
Messi was the final piece of the puzzle. PSG has gone backwards with Messi. Christophe Galtier is on the bench.
It’s important to find a reason why Guardiola, despite his former mentor at Barcelona often describing Messi as the greatest player of all time, didn’t insist on bringing a mature Messi to City.
Guardiola’s team is through to the Champions League final this season and are playing at a standard PSG would not reasonably expect, despite having Messi and Kylian Mbappe in a similar squad.
The Collective Impact of PSG’s Obligation to Go After Whizzes is Debilitating.
They should try to build a side that is more adapted without the 36 player this month. This has cost an estimated yearly compensation amount of $32,1 million ($30,1 million) after charges.
From cheers and scoffs
Early this year, Messi’s allies were sneering at him in the Parc des Sovereigns.
Before he did that, he had skipped preparations for an unapproved trip to Saudi Arabia in order to fulfill his responsibilities as the travel industry ambassador for the Inlet State.
Messi was suspended for a week and could not sign another agreement in Paris.
Before Saturday’s final match of the season, Messi had scored 32 goals in 74 matches for PSG.
It was a difficult season for him in France, as he struggled to find his feet after being removed from Barcelona.
This season, he has been even more critical. He has fought against the idea of a French league on several occasions.
The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner fostered a fine understanding with Mbappe. He seemed to acknowledge that Mbappe was the point where the group converged.
Messi is the only player to have scored 16 Ligue 1 goals and made 16 assists this season.
Two Ligue 1 champion’s medals have been added to his collection.
Analysis – Is it Ridiculous to say that?
By the way, Messi still has an influence on the people that have worked with and against him.
The award for French Player of the Year was given to him regardless of whether Mbappe won it.
I never thought that his analysis was valid, even though he’s 35 years old and the World Cup is in season. But I believe he has scored more than 40 goals in all of the rivalries.
Messi and PSG have the perfect opportunity to continue their journey.
