PSG Chief’s Dig At Inter Miami’s Lionel Messi Unwarranted

The president of Lionel Messi’s former club made a subtle dig at the exit of the current Inter Miami star. We take a little umbrage at that.

Ludacris Statements From PSG

I understand that as the president of PSG, you want to promote team unity, especially when your side starts the Ligue One campaign with just eight points from the first four matches and currently sit in second behind Monaco.

But to suggest your team is actually better without the power and prowess of Messi and Neymar Jr. is, quite honestly, nuts.

Oh, and resting on the laurels of Mbappe may not be the best move considering he may only be around for another season before bolting to Spain to join Real Madrid.

So, while the fund that owns PSG backed up a Brinks truck to fund three of the most prolific players in the world, it couldn’t buy them a Champions League title.

And Al-Khelaifi’s go-to was to suggest his team was more “united” than ever before.

Yet, you say nothing about the fact that Neymar suggested their time in Paris was nothing short of horrific, saying “he [Messi] lived hell, we lived hell, both he and I.”

Is that because your fanbase thinks they’re a little more entitled than they really are?

My guess is yes.

And while Al-Khelaifi may think PSG is more “united” now than before, me and La Familia will take Messi any day of the week.
