Messi Definitely still does not succeed … If the Argentine genius already has three achievements in the Champions League, he still missed the opportunity to open his goals counter in Ligue 1, Friday night against Little (2-1 victory of PSG), thus linking a fifth consecutive match without finding the flaw in the French championship.
For this meeting against the Mastiffs, the Parisian number 30 was placed in false number 9 by Mauricio Pochettino, before going out at the break after feeling muscle discomfort. A position in which the former Barcelonan simply did not shine. His former partner in Catalonia, Thierry Henry, explained why.
“When there is a false 9, it takes real calls”
“When you play with Messi in false nine, someone has to take the depth, estimated the top scorer in the history of the Blues at the microphone of Prime Video. When there is a false 9, it takes real calls. We have seen Wijnaldum do it three or four times, but for him and the rest of the team, someone has to take it deep ”. This someone is obviously called Kylian Mbappé, but due to an ENT infection he could not be in the game.
