PSG : Lionel Messi wants to set the record straight!

While his possible arrival in MLS has made a lot of reaction in recent hours, the Argentine still has a contract to honor with the club of the capital. And the Pulga intends to silence the critics before leaving Paris.

Almost a year after his unexpected arrival in Paris Saint-Germain, Lionel Messi has lived a year full of emotions. Surprised and sad to have been pushed out by the Blaugrana, the Argentine was uprooted against his will before landing in France. Unsurprisingly, after more than 20 years in Barcelona, La Pulga had a hard time adjusting to his new life. Criticized by the French media because of his performance far from his stratospheric standards (11 goals, 13 assists in 33 games, all competitions), the number 30 of PSG has undoubtedly experienced the worst season of his career.

Except that Messi does not intend to leave Paris before the end of his contract (2023).the latest rumors about his future also mentioned his possible arrival in MLS, at Inter Miami in a year. Messi would acquire 35% of the shares of the Florida club of David Beckham and would wear the hat of shareholder-player. An information quickly denied by his clan. While waiting to see if this American story is confirmed or not, the former Blaugrana wants to honor his last year of contract with the Red and Blue.

Disappointed by Pochettino

Accustomed throughout his career to be the number 1, the South American has certainly had difficulty blending into his new environment, but he intends to put the points on the i. Better integrated into a locker room that he has learned to know over the months, Messi has formed some special bonds with certain elements such as Marco Verratti or Kylian Mbappé.

Aware that he has had to change his role (less striker, more passer), the Argentine, who has a great chance to finish second in the Ligue 1 assists ranking behind Mbappé, has only one obsession: winning the Champions League with PSG. No question of changing the team for a player sufficiently marked by his summer change 2021. However, there are downsides to report. In addition to the whistles of the Park that have surprised him enormously, Messi would especially not really on the same wavelength as Mauricio Pochettino. The newspaper explains that the former Culé did not flourish in the game. With Pochettino on the hot seat, Messi is following the case very closely.
