Lionel Messi said goodbye to Barcelona, joining PSG at the last summer market on a free transfer. This is considered one of the two biggest shocks of the transfer period, besides Cristiano Ronaldo’s reunion with MU.
Despite receiving a lot of expectations to shine with the duo Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, until now, Messi has not really integrated into the team’s playstyle. Plus the lack of luck, M10 has only 1 goal after 5 appearances in all competitions for PSG. It was a masterpiece against Man City in the second round of the Champions League group stage.

Despite these difficulties, in an exclusive interview with France Football magazine, Messi believes he has made the right decision. This is the first time Messi has accepted to speak in front of a media since joining PSG.
“I made no mistake when I went to PSG,” Messi insisted. This quote is the most prominent one, and the entire interview will be published by France Football magazine on October 9.
Just revealed a sentence, but clearly, fans can understand, Messi has no regrets when parting with Barca after 21 years of attachment. The Argentine superstar did his best to stay, even accepting a 50% salary reduction, but then everything fell apart. The fault is not Messi’s, and when he has tried his best, he has no regrets.
Messi answers exclusively France Football
Not to mention, Barca is now in crisis with many problems, from the performance on the field to the club’s finances. Even coach Ronald Koeman admits that Messi’s excellence has overshadowed Barca’s weakness.
“Messi hid everything. He played well and helped us win a lot. Of course, he had good players around him, but it was he who made the difference. Thanks to him people also get better. This is not criticism, this is what is drawn from actual observation.”
