  1. PSG needs a new coach, Tuchel or Zidane. Get rid of Luis Campos, he’s small club mentality; talent is global and portugal is not the global hub of talents, it’s Brazil, Arg and France. Look at Bayer, City and Real, transfer policy is so efficient. Almost everyone they bought performed well.

  2. PSG signed Soler, Fabian, Sanches , Vitinha and Ekitike to replace Dimaria, Icardi and Paredes and they also loaned out Sarabia just after the world cup. Once Messi moved to PSG all their big stars and good upcoming youngsters were getting little to no time on pitch and both Mbappe and Neymar didn’t like to get subbed. So PSG sold its stars and bought some average players in their midfield who would have no issues being on bench, which is why they have been suffering. Also Marquinos injury didn’t help them yesterday. The young teenager defender made a wrong pass to Verrati who was surronded by Bayern attackers and lost the ball. Regardless of this defeat PSG , a state owned club would like to keep Messi. Having Leo in the team means attention from media all over the world. If Messi wasn’t playing for PSG , nobody would be talking about their yet another exit. However, Messi will wait till the end of this season to renew his contract, i.e. after the dust settles. But Messi and PSG are so incompatible that even next season nothing will change for Leo or PSG. Also, going back to Barcelona will be a blunder. He should extend with PSG for one more season and then go to MLS where he will be given a cut of the league’s revenue.

  3. Some of you care way too much about the Champions League. We achieved the greatest prize of them all. But some of you are bothered by a bunch of trolls on the internet? Stay off social media and do not bother with the pundits. Messi has a World Cup and has won literally everything.

  4. We should all expect haters to criticize us now. This is the way it is. It is lonely at the top. Messi has answered all the questions and so has Argentina. There are 3 stars on the jersey. France has 2, Spain has 1, and Italy and Germany have been a non factor for over a decade.
    This is true, most of the best players currently in the world are from South America. That will not change in the near future. But without South America, European Football would be dog shit. Imagine all the Brazilians and Argentines playing in their own local league only. Those would be the best leagues in the world, and not even close.

  5. Evra again opening his mouth against Messi when he lost. Proper Messi hater. The guy who use racism victim tactics to max. potential.

    • Have you seen Thomas Müller’s statement? He prefers to play against Messi rather than against Ronaldo. Messi is harmless against Bayern and Germany. He recalls the defeats against Barca 7-0 and 8-2 and against Argentina 4-0 in 2010 and the 2014 final. Too bad the stats back up his statement. There is an article in Olé about it.

      • But Messi defeated him in 2015 when he scored his one of most iconic goals. Also Messi has more UCL than Muller. It is not messi fault if his defender and keeper concede 8 goals.

        • Champions league and world cup is not easy to win. Always Big teams have advantage. PSG is not a big team in champions league. Manchester City also struggling.
          Real Madrid almost always shining…! Just think, if Messi was in Real..!

        • True. Sad fact is that teams with Müller have won more often against teams with Messi. The goat can’t help it, like you stated. 2015 was the last time Messi won the CL. 8 years ago already.

  6. Penaldo fan boys and Messi haters have came out of cave after PSG exist. After World cup, football had became unbearable to them, now they came out just to hate Messi meanwhile their favorite is playing in saudi league and will never come close to World cup. Messi dont give shit about PSG and his first priority were Argentina and Barca, after Barca only Argentina is his priority and he fulfilled his dream of World champion. Messi is the only player with most ballon dor and WC and Copas. Let their idol pull crowd like Messi did in Argentina after WC victory or immense support and respect he got during World Cup tournament. Their idol can by Instagram bots or twitter trolls but not love and respect Messi get from genuine football fans
