Foot – Market – PSG
Arrived last summer, Lionel Messi is still breaking in at PSG. Asked by RMC on the subject, Angel Di Maria commented on the personal and sporting adaptation of the Pulga.
Last summer the PSG hit real hard by getting his hands on Lionel Messi, forced to leave the FC Barcelona due to the financial problems encountered by the Catalan entity. A colossal operation on the part of the PSG, and a size change for Lionel Messi, who had never seen a club change since joining Barcelona from Argentina during his childhood. The integration of the six-fold Ballon d’Or is therefore logically complex, and several rumors from Spain suggest that Lionel Messi and his family would already be nostalgic for their old life. Guest of RMC this Friday, Angel Of Maria was nevertheless reassuring about his compatriot.
“He is very happy, adapted and that is the most important”
« He is very happy. Her family is adapting well, her children are enjoying school. He has found his home. He adapts well with the people at the club. It is normal in football that he adapts over time. It’s not easy for him, he had his whole life in Barcelona. New home, new school, it’s not easy for him. For someone who is used to changing clubs all the time it is better, but he is not. He had his whole life in one place. But he is very happy, adapted and that is the most important “, Explain Angel Of Maria.
“He arrives in a team which had its marks”
On a sporting level, Lionel Messi must also find its marks in PSG. Used to playing in a team playing for him, the Parisian number 30 continues to adapt alongside Neymar or Kylian Mbappé and is sometimes in difficulty, despite very honorable statistics (4 goals, 2 assists in 10 games). Angel Di Maria recognizes this major change for the former star of the FC Barcelona, althoughEl Video is confident for the future: ” It is true that he must adapt to the way of playing of the PSG. This is why adaptation is not easy. He arrives in a team that had its marks. In a team at ease against, he likes to touch the ball, it’s a balance to find, not always easy. There is time, there is work… You know in football we don’t have time, criticism comes quickly, problems too. But the most important is that we are quiet together. The team feels good with him and little by little he will get better and better, score and things will go well. »
