“I don’t want to congratulate Messi on winning the World Cup” PSG announces an unusual stance

It’s no wonder that France’s leading football club doesn’t congratulate the player who defeated France in the World Cup final. However, if the main character is Lionel Messi (36, Paris Saint-Germain), the story is different.

Messi started in the 2022-23 Ligue 1 round 18 home game against Angers held at the Parc des Princes in Paris, France on the 12th (Korean time). This is Messi’s first league appearance after returning to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) after the World Cup.

PSG played two league games after the World Cup break, but Messi did not play due to personal vacation, etc.

In the game that day, Messi fired a sensational pass to Nordi Mukiele in the 5th minute of the first half, and Mukiele, who received it, contributed a cross to Hugo Ekitique, contributing to the opening goal. Then, in the 28th minute of the second half, after receiving a pass from Mukiele, he shook the other side of the net in a one-on-one situation with the goalkeeper and even scored a goal. 슬롯사이트

PSG, who contributed to all the team’s goals with Messi, defeated Angers 2-0 and recorded 47 points (15 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss), firmly defending their lead in Ligue 1. Messi also ranks second with 18 attack points, following teammate Neymar (20 points).

At the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, which ended on the 19th of last month, Messi recorded 7 goals and 3 assists, sweeping away individual awards such as the Golden Ball and Help King. He also scored multiple goals in the final against France, and led Argentina to the top of the World Cup in 36 years by winning the penalty shootout.

As a team representing France, there was nothing for PSG to congratulate Argentina on their victory. However, because the main character was Messi, the team’s top star, it became a topic of conversation. It’s because the club’s representative has won the World Cup, and it’s strange to be quiet.

In the end, PSG had to announce that they would not hold an unusual World Cup victory celebration. The PSG Report, which mainly deals with PSG news, said, “The club thinks that the welcome message Messi received after entering France is enough.”

Messi also understood the situation. The media reported, “Messi doesn’t care much about not being celebrated at the Parc des Princes,” and “I understand the situation and now want to enjoy the season at PSG.”

Meanwhile, Messi and teammate Kylian Mbafe (25), who had been stuck in the World Cup final, did not participate in this match. The combination of Messi-Mbappe is expected to unfold in the next game.
