The reaction of the French press to Messi’s assistance in PSG’s victory
PSG managed to add an important victory in Ligue 1 over Brest, after the hard setback in the Champions League. Although those led by Christophe Galtier did not have their best presentation, the Lionel Messi-Kylian Mbappé connection once again gave victory to the current champion of the tournament. After the game, the French media “forgot” about Leo’s magnificent pass and only praised the definition of ‘Donatello’.
Not only do the Parisian ultras have a bad relationship with the top winner of the Ballon d’Or (7), but the press itself has begun a campaign to pressure the board not to renew the captain of the Argentine team, especially after what they experienced against Bayern Munich, within the framework of the round of 16 of the Champions League.
In this context, after the match against Brest, two of the most important media outlets decided to ignore Lionel Messi’s 300 attendance at club level and only highlighted what Mbappé had done, in the final stretch of the league commitment. ‘RMC Sport’, on its website, detailed: “Mbappé saves Paris after escaping exclusion”, where they omit the Rosario pass and only highlight the Frenchman’s goal. For its part, ‘L’Équipe’ titled: “Mbappé the saviour”. The French newspaper punished Messi hard after the Champions League and has been one of the main detractors of the ’10’ of the Albiceleste.
Could Lionel Messi stay one more season in Paris?
Despite the fact that the situation looks adverse and in the absence of official information, the only thing certain so far is that PSG is the only club that is negotiating with Leo for his future. However, FC Barcelona, despite its economic situation, is also excited about having the striker back.
