THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED TO MESSI during his debut at PSG! Lionel’s first match for PSG!
MESSI’S DEBUT: HERE’S HOW IT WAS!
Yesterday the whole world was waiting for a historic moment – LIONEL MESSI’S DEBUT AT PSG! And it took place! Pochettino left Leo on the bench for the match against Reims releasing the Argentine in the 66th minute in the second half.
It’s interesting to note that the Argentine replaced Neymar, which means we didn’t have a chance to see the Messi – Mbappe – Neymar trio in action. By the time of Messi’s appearance on the pitch, the score was already 0-2 in favour of Paris as Kylian Mbappe scored twice!
It is worth noting that the entire stadium chanted «Messi!» – everyone was delighted. For the 31 minutes of play, including the stoppage time, Messi didn’t shoot on goal but made 20 accurate passes (a total of 21 with 95.2% accuracy) and made one successful tackle.
Leo has been fouled three times – more than any other player in the entire game. We also point out that the opponents didn’t pity Messi and he was even hit in the face once. But we have to pay tribute to the Argentine, he didn’t writhe in agony and bravely continued the game. Although Lionel didn’t make any effective action – it was obvious that he is only adapting to the new team. And Messi looked really tired after the game.
“Messi is still far from his best shape,” Mauricio Pochettino said after the game.
“I have been dreaming all day about Messi’s debut at PSG, who is considered the best player in history. But I haven’t even felt this debut. I was delighted with Mbappe’s game. He is truly the best player in the world! ” El Chiringuito TV journalist and Real Madrid fan Tomas Ronsero wrote in his Twitter account.
After the game, the Reims players lined up for taking a photo with Messi. The goalkeeper of the hosts Predrag Rajkovic asked Leo to take a picture with his son, and the Argentine didn’t refuse. We think this photo deserves your like!
PSG SHOCKED MESSI AND NEYMAR BY BUYING HAALAND? PIRLO IS THE NEXT BARCELONA MANAGER?! Football News
PSG GOES FOR HAALAND
La Gazzetta Dello Sport
PSG seriously claims the forward of Borussia Dortmund Erling Haaland, according to La Gazzetta Dello Sport.
The source writes that next summer the Parisians will try to buy the Norwegian in case they do lose Kylian Mbappe.
The Parisians are already preparing funds for Haaland and are confident that they will provide the amount of 75 million euros in compensation prescribed in Erling’s contract with Borussia.
What’s important, a great plus for a big club from France is an excellent relationship between the sporting director of the club Leonardo and Haaland’s agent Mino Raiola.
By the way, requests from the player’s representative are increasing every day! An update from Football Italia says that recently Raiola decided to demand a salary of 50 million euros per season for his client, instead of the 30 million set a few months earlier.
Although, even this amount will not scare off PSG. The Red and Blues expect that they will have no competitors in the battle for the Norwegian forward.
Initially, the club was afraid to compete with Real, but now the leadership of the Parisians is convinced of Madrid directing all resources to the signing of Mbappe and putting the option with Haaland aside.
LAPORTA WANTS TO SEE PIRLO AT BARCELONA
Gerard Romero, Cadena SER, Cadena Cope, Diario AS
Next up we have a fresh update from Catalan journalist Gerard Romero on the next Barcelona manager. An insider found out that Blaugranas’ President Joan Laporta is going to appoint Andrea Pirlo, replacing Ronald Koeman, though other people in the leadership are no supporters of the Italian’s candidacy.
“Pirlo is a personal bet of Joan Laporta. The Blaugrana president feels he has the gift of discovering the coaches and is thinking about it seriously.”
“The management, however, says they have better options on the table for the Barcelona bench. Laporta reflects on Pirlo but does not have the support of sports directors and technicians,” wrote Romero.
Even more information in favor of Pirlo is given by the publishers of Cadena SER and Cadena Copé. The first source states that Barcelona is definitely not negotiating with the head coach of the Belgian national team Roberto Martinez, while the second excludes the River Plate coach Marcelo Gallardo, whose name appeared in Spanish newspapers lately, from Laporta’s list.
And here is a piece from Diario As: Barça has established contact with Andrea Pirlo, already making an official offer. It is already on the table, but the former Juventus coach took time to think a bit.
Koeman gets angry at critics during press-conference
Well, it appears Ronald Koeman is losing his temper! So far, the Barcelona manager held a press conference before the game against Atlético and had a say on what he thinks of the criticism in his address.
“Sacking? The club have said nothing to me. I’ve learned that the president was at the training ground this morning, but I have not seen him. Even though he didn’t tell me anything, I have eyes and ears. I’m tired of defending myself, it still doesn’t make sense. One day I would like to talk about everything I think!»
“You are asking what kind of relationship I am with the president? I am not going to answer that question. Are they showing disrespect to me? I don’t think it is necessary to answer that either. »
“I don’t know what another coach can do in my place. Should I speculate on this topic? Nothing will change in the line-up until winter. »
“If I had a bag of money, Lionel Messi would still be on our team and I would invite other players to play in a more dominant style. But now I need to work with what we have,” concluded Koeman.
Solskjaer to change Man.Utd’s tactics after Ronaldo’s advice?
Looks like Cristiano Ronaldo is soon to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the head of Manchester United! This feeling came after the news from ESPN that the Norwegian manager had a meeting with the Portuguese, where they discussed the red devils’ tactics.
According to the source, Ronaldo talked to Solskjaer and his coaching staff, providing some tips aimed at increasing the team’s speed in the opposition half of the pitch.
Cristiano believes that his teammates should move the ball faster when attacking, and he, in turn, will be determined to score even more often, bringing maximum benefit to United.
It is noted that Solskjaer thoroughly listened to Ronaldo and has already made some changes to the training process.
