Messi has confirmed his departure from PSG after a 2-year relationship with a sad ending – constant whistles and boos aimed at the goalscorer, 10 days left to celebrate his 36th birthday.
Much has changed after the 2022 World Cup, where Messi and Argentina defeated France in the final in Qatar to take the throne.
Messi’s form is also lower than before, unable to help PSG go further in the Champions League compared to last year – being eliminated in the round of 16.
And the boos and reactions to Messi increased at Parc des Princes, when his name was called in the starting line-up, every time there was a ball on the field, etc. Even on the day of PSG’s Ligue 1 championship, Messi also suffer a similar situation.
But Messi’s second season is not bad, with 20 goals and 20 assists, the highest score of Whosored in the PSG squad.
In an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport recently, Mbappe shared that he was embarrassed by the way Parisians treated Messi:
“We are talking about perhaps the greatest player in the history of football. It’s never good news when someone like Messi leaves the club.
Personally, I don’t understand why so many people are relieved when Messi is gone. He needs to be respected.
But, Messi didn’t get the respect he deserved in France. It’s a shame“.
Farewell to PSG, Messi did not have a reunion with Barca, instead he chose to move to the US to play football, Inter Miami co-owned by David Beckham.
Meanwhile, Mbappe’s future is currently heating up as he informed PSG that he will not trigger a contract extension and will leave next year.
The Paris team is given a clear view: either Mbappe signs an extension, or they will sell him this summer.
Real Madrid is in a ready position, MU is also mentioned as a strong candidate between the information about to receive a new owner from Qatar and Mbappe will be a super “blockbuster” at Old Trafford.
