Welcoming Strasbourg at the Park of the Princes in the second round of Ligue 1 was also the time when PSG launched 5 rookies of the team in the summer transfer window. Of course, the name that received the most attention was Messi.
The Argentine striker made his grand debut in front of 50,000 fans in the stadium. He also has his share and message to the club’s fans. Specifically, the Argentine superstar said:
“I just had a really special week. I want to thank the fans for the truly incredible love and welcome you have given me. I am happy to be here, starting a new journey in my career.
I hope we will enjoy it together and have a really great season.”
Messi has a meaningful message for PSG fans
Obviously, bringing back Messi makes every PSG fan very confident in the possibility that the team can own the Champions League title for the first time in the club’s history. The Argentine superstar is of course an indispensable name on the attack in the near future next to Neymar, Mbappe, Di Maria or Icardi.
In the last match against Strasbourg, Messi did not play because he was not physically fit, because he had only 2 training sessions with the new club. However, it is likely that the 34-year-old striker will make his debut in Ligue 1 when PSG meet Brest in the third round.
He and the club’s rookies had a grand debut
Although there was no Messi or Neymar in the last match, PSG still got an extremely easy victory over Strasbourg with a bold score of 4-2 to win all 6 points after 2 matches.
The biggest goal of this club this year is of course the European Cup title. In addition, 3 domestic tournaments are almost within reach of representatives of the French capital.
