Leandro Paredes of PSG: “We treat Lionel Messi like anyone else”


Leandro Paredes spoke in an interview with Fox Sports Argentina where he discussed Lionel Messi’s incorporation into the current Argentina national team squad.

The Argentina and PSG midfielder has become a staple in Lionel Scaloni’s midfield. Playing 24 matches with the national team, Paredes is surely one not only for the present but for the future of the team. Speaking in the interview, here’s what Paredes had to say about Messi:

“We treat him just like another one (of the boys). That made it so that Leo incorporates much faster. It’s difficult, it’s not easy to treat him just like anyone else.

“We try to make it so that he feels comfortable, for him to know that we are all going in the same direction, that everyone will be with him. I believe that was very good not only for him but for all of us.”
