On its website, Paris Saint-Germain has formalized the departure of Lionel Messi. The club thanks the Argentine for his two years at the club.
It is in a press release that the announcement of the departure of Lionel Messi (35 years old) was recorded by the club of the capital. A formalization that PSG supporters feared and which is now a reality. After two seasons under the Parisian colors, the Argentinian world champion in 2022, will have won two French championship titles and a Champions Trophy.
“Leo, thank you”
Two words written on the club’s website, synonymous with end clap. Arriving in 2021, Messi had played his first game in Reims on August 29 of that year. An earthquake for Ligue 1, a delight for football lovers. Since then, he will have registered 32 goals in all competitions and 35 assists. His first jewel against City at the Parc des Princes in the group stage of the C1 had marked the spirits. After 74 games in the jersey of PSGthe club wanted to thank the player for the contribution made to the championship as well as to the institution.
A mixed season
“Thank you to the club, to the city of Paris and to its inhabitants for these two years. I wish them the best for the future.” said Lionel Messi. This year, he will have registered 16 goals in 31 Ligue 1 games and 16 assists (two lengths behind his Argentine compatriot, Angel Di Maria), which makes him the best passer in the championship. But the Parisian adventure will not have been at the end of the expectations of the Pulga. Coming to bring his genius, but also to try to bring PSG its first Champions League, there will have been many disappointments on both sides.
Paris Saint-Germain paid tribute to Messi in a 1min28 video, retracing the goals and technical exploits of the Argentinian. The club said it was “proud to have had the best player in history in its ranks”. From now on, it is in Barcelona, Miami or Saudi Arabia that the future of the sevenfold Ballon d’Or should be written, unless a new suitor enters the dance.
