Author of a quintuplet which allowed Argentina to beat Estonia (5-0), Lionel Messi confirmed that he was in clear recovery with his selection. And inevitably some wonder if it is the same player who is at PSG.
Already brilliant last Wednesday against Italy at Wembley (3-0), Lionel Messi hit very hard on Sunday evening during a friendly match against Estonia which was played in Pamplona. Indeed, the sevenfold Ballon d’Or has simply signed a quintuple, only one goal less than what he did with Paris Saint-Germain throughout the season. Obviously, comparison is not right, and with the Argentine selection, Leo Messi does not evolve with Kylian Mbappé and Neymar at his side. But this stratospheric performance, which overshadowed Cristiano Ronaldo’s double against Switzerland at the same time, highlighted the dubious performances of the Pulga since joining PSG and Ligue 1. If some were delighted to see that the former Barcelonan was not yet a finished player and that it could be good for Paris, others hit hard on Lionel Messi Paris SG version.
Lionel Messi, 6 goals in a Ligue 1 season, 5 match goals
And on RMC, we went there with a good heart, wondering if it’s the same Lionel Messi who wore the Paris Saint-Germain shirt this season. ” This quintuplet is that of the brother of the guy who plays at PSG. I saw a big format of this game against Estonia and I saw the one against Italy, if I were a Paris fan, I would have it a little bad to see Messi running so much with the jersey of the Argentinian selection. His investment, his involvement, his races, the volume of play, it’s really staggering. Maybe see his friends, or drink another mate, but that’s crazy “, quipped Jonatan MacHardy during the After. And Nicolas Jamain, who presented the talk show, went there with his tackle: “ He’s his brother, his cousin, I don’t know, but he’s a guy we haven’t heard from for a year “. It is true that Lionel Messi is coming out of a not really sensational season with the champions of France, even to the point that an amicable breach of contract had been mentioned in the heart of winter. Since then, the Argentine star has completely denied this possibility, announcing that he wanted to shine for his second season at PSG.

Messi Ballon d’Or, a quintuplet that makes you smile
Nevertheless, on social networks, it sneered with this monstrous performance of the 34-year-old player, some Paris Saint-Germain supporters having difficulty digesting this. ” Messi rests at PSG and exults with the Argentiniane “, ” Now that MESSI alone has put on a Manita, we can launch the Messi Ballon d’Or propaganda », « And so ? What should we tell him? “Bravo Messi for being a legend elsewhere, you can suck at PSG, it doesn’t matter, you’re a legend elsewhere “. If tomorrow Barça recruits a great player but he becomes useless at Barça, how will you react? “, all this in the middle of the usual general brawl between fans of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, the “ penalty and other GOATs being out. Waiting, Luis Campos and Nasser Al-Khelaifi probably hope to recover an Albiceleste-style Lionel Messi during the resumption of the 2022-2023 season, because it is obvious, it is not the same player that we see at PSG and with Argentina.
