International Players > Lionel Messi

At Barcelona Messi was the king, at PSG he is one more of the team

The Argentine Mauricio Pochettino took the Argentine player out 75 minutes into the duel at the Parque de los Príncipes.

Well they say that an image is worth a thousand words, and the one that Lionel Messi left in PSG's harrowing triumph against Lyon in the Parc des Princes for Ligue 1, is going to give a lot to talk about. The Argentine was replaced by Mauricio Pochettino in the 75th minute, with the duel still tied 1 to 1, and the gestures of the Rosario have caused a stir. Leo did not like the change and ‘Poche’ came to the front to explain and try to put cold cloths on the situation.

“We made the decision to remove Leo Messi due to a possible injury in the future. Important parties are approaching and it must be protected. They are decisions we make for the team. Everyone knows that we have great players, we have to make decisions. Sometimes it can be attractive, other times a little less ”, said the Argentine at the end of the match.

When Messi crossed paths with Pochettino, he buried his head in the ground and covered his face. The technician approached the striker and stretched out his hand, but that gesture was not reciprocal. In fact, the Rosario looked unfriendly to the former Tottenham coach.

During his time on the pitch, Messi enjoyed opportunities to score his first goal with the PSG jersey. What's more, the ‘30 ′ crashed a shot into the Lyon post. 

Lionel Messi: One more in the team

The truth is that Lionel Messi will have to understand that he is no longer master and lord as was the case in Barcelona. It is that in the Spanish team he was literally a king, and to understand why in France he still did not write his history, and because he is surrounded by great names who are at his height.
