PSG: Messi is frustrating, he should do more!

Author of 4 small goals in 24 Ligue 1 matches since his arrival at Paris Saint-Germain, Lionel Messi is not unanimous. For Ludovic Obraniak, the former FC Barcelona crack must do better.

Admittedly, unlike Neymar and Kylian Mbappé four years earlier, PSG did not break the bank to afford Lionel Messi, free of any contract and therefore free. But it is clear that nine months to the day after its signature in the capital, childbirth is painful. Obviously, with 13 assists in Ligue 1 and 5 goals in 7 Champions League matches, the Pulga has sometimes sold dreams. But his lack of realism or even his lack of involvement during certain outings largely annoyed in the spans of the Parc des Princes. Among consultants, too, it is believed that Messi must perform better.

We remain on our hunger »Obraniak Plague

On the chain shelf The Team, Ludovic Obraniak, champion of France with Lille, winner of the Coupe de France with LOSC and Bordeaux, did not fail to point out the lack of consistency of Lionel Messi’s performances this season. Arguments symbolized by the last meeting of PSG, against Troyes: “ Lionel Messi? We remain on our hunger. If he puts his 10 goals there, does that change the situation? Yes there is a form of bad luck since the gestures are still of quality. I think it’s 10 minutes from the end against Troyes where he comes for a one-two inside the game and finds the crossbar. But it’s too short, it only happens in the 80th minute. It’s true that we remain hungry… it’s terrible! Difficult to contradict the former Polish international. Still, Messi has played 12 of the last 14 Ligue 1 fixtures in full. Not always thoroughly?
