Author of a double on Saturday evening in Montpellier (4-0) during the 37th day of Ligue 1, Lionel Messi found colors at the end of the 2021-22 season. Criticized or even heckled by the Parisian public in recent months, the Argentine star finally seems to be fulfilled in the French capital.
Will the seven-time Ballon d’Or get a huge revenge during the 2022-23 financial year by having a great season with the French champion? Some are convinced of this, like his teammate Ander Herrera. “I think he had some very good games here. He hit the posts eight, nine times (10 posts). We often talk about the goals he scores, but he makes the team play (…) We are very optimistic after a season of adaptation for him. We are going to see the best Messi next season (…) It is a pleasure to play with him and to train with him. It’s incredible (…) We also have to accept that after 20-25 years in Barcelona, it’s not easy to change club and country. I’ve already done it. It’s not easy to change your habits every day. I think he did well during his adaptation season. But, we are very optimistic with him for the next season. He is an incredible and very humble player. He likes to work every day, to enjoy the training and the players in Paris. We are very lucky to have him here in Paris and in France”entrusted the Spanish midfielder to the microphone of Prime Video.
