Messi is ‘very happy’ to open the scoring
Lionel Messi scored his first goal last night after signing for PSG. The French club needed to open their scoring as soon as possible – Messi is happy to be able to do that.
Messi left Barcelona to play in the fourth match after signing for PSG. Played two matches in the French League, two in the Champions League. As a new club, Messi may not have been able to shine like himself in these matches.
Even after that he could have scored a goal earlier. The crossbar stood in front of him in two matches. Discussions started about why he was not getting the goal. The Argentine star has been able to pull the rush in those discussions by getting the goal tomorrow.
Messi could not hold back his joy after getting the first goal. “I am just happy to be able to score,” he said.
New place, new team, a bunch of new teammates. After leaving the club for a long time, adapting to all this is not an easy task even for a star like Messi. “I haven’t played much since I came to PSG,” he said. This is my second match at the Parc des Princes. I am slowly adapting to my new environment, new clubs and new teammates. ‘
Messi’s chemistry with Neymar and Mbappe was not bad. Messi’s goal also had a small help from Mbappe. For now, Messi’s goal is to sharpen his coordination with Neymar and Mbappe. “The more we play together, the more we can work for the team. Everyone needs to improve together. At the same time the value must increase. We played well today. We have to do our best in the matches ahead. ‘
It is also exciting that Messi’s first goal for PSG came against Manchester City yesterday. Messi played for Barcelona from 2008 to 2012 under Pep Guardiola. Messi has never scored a goal against any of Guardiola’s side since he resigned as Guardiola coach in 2012. That’s what he did yesterday.
Guardiola, however, congratulated Messi, saying, “I always wish Messi well. I want Messi to be happy at PSG and enjoy every moment here. It was great to meet Messi today. ‘
