Not everything can be pink. After receiving him as king, the French press had already begun to question the level that Lionel Messi had shown at Paris Saint-Germain.
And on its cover of October 29, L’Equipe, one of the main French newspapers, published on its cover the current situation of the Argentine star and confirmed that they were still waiting for his best version.
“Finally a good start?‘, he called the medium a picture of Leo on his knees. With the exception of the Champions League match against RB Leipzig (on the day he scored his first double for the Parisian team), the former Barcelona had to show his best version, and criticism is pointed at him and his teammates (especially Neymar-Mbappe) And of course to coach Pochettino.
“With his arrival at PSG closed in the summer, Messi has yet to reach the performance he gave at Barcelona, and there is still concern but impatience is starting to spread.‘, the sequel to ‘L’Equipe’.
Similarly, the Spanish newspaper “Mundo Deportivo”, echoing its front page, described the beginning of the season that Rosario witnessed in French territory as “secret”.
Messi will have a new opportunity on Friday to silence the criticism. Paris Saint-Germain, without Mbappe through injury, is measured for nothing more and nothing less than Rennes, the current Ligue 1 champion, a perfect moment to throw the team on his shoulder and show his level step by step.
