The 35-year-old striker left Barcelona in 2021 and joined Paris Saint-Germain to further develop his career.
Lionel Messi made a shocking move in the summer of 2021 when leaving Barcelona – the team associated with his great career – to move to Paris Saint-Germain.
The Blaugrana was then unable to tie Messi to a new contract, due to salary limits from La Liga.
And joining the new berth also makes the owner of 7 Ballon d’Or encounter many difficulties. Messi had a rather lackluster first season in a PSG shirt and is currently facing speculation about his future.
According to former midfielder Jerome Rothen, Messi was mentally damaged after leaving Barcelona.
“Lionel Messi has been an extraordinary person since he arrived. It is difficult to say the same about a player who has made a big mark in the history of football,” the former PSG star told RMC Sport.
“But in fact that has greatly affected his performance. Very simple. The move to PSG failed for many reasons. But the most obvious thing is Messi feels abandoned by Barca.”
