Even City’s Guardiola is ecstatic
“Wundertor” crowns the best player in the world
“Lionel Messi is the best player in the world,” said coach Mauricio Pochettino. English football legend Gary Lineker is also raving about him. His former trainer, Pep Guardiola, too. With his goal against Manchester City, Messi has finally arrived at Paris Saint-Germain.
For English football legend Gary Lineker, Lionel Messi’s first goal for Paris Saint-Germain was a “miracle goal”, the media praised the exceptional talent and the superstar was also in high spirits after his debut. “It was the perfect night against a great opponent. I’m very happy to have scored a goal. It was only my second game at Prinzenpark. I’m getting used to it little by little,” Messi said after the 2 -0. (1: 0) Home win of the Champions League against Manchester City at Canal Plus beaming with joy.
Especially for the Argentinian who left FC Barcelona without a transfer, his first goal in the new shirt should have been a little relief. And for PSG, the hope that the 34-year-old will now really take off. Especially since the goal came on Tuesday evening in a nice collaboration with Kylian Mbappé, who said he was ready to emigrate.
“I’m adjusting to my new team. The more we play together, the better our relationship will be on the pitch,” said the six-time world footballer, who was last injured and had to be absent twice in Ligue 1 “We have to grow together and keep doing our best. We still have a lot of things we can improve,” Messi said after his fourth game for PSG, also in the direction of Neymar and Mbappé.
Even Guardiola is enthusiastic
Because the trio of exceptional talents and alpha animals, who teleported arm in arm in front of the camera after the match in the locker room, have not yet really managed to convince together. “The teams are forming over time, little by little,” said PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino after the Parisians’ first victory against City and then gave additional praise to his compatriot Messi: “This is the best player in the world, without a doubt. “
After Idrissa Gueye (8th) put the hosts in the lead, Messi ensured success with his 74th-minute goal on Tuesday night. Paris lead Group A. Man City are third behind Club Brugge, 2-1 winners at RB Leipzig.
“The goal was fantastic,” even said city coach Pep Guardiola, with whom Messi celebrated Barcelona’s greatest successes. “You can’t control Leo for 90 minutes.”
