a player has made himself indispensable to Messi

Zapping Goal! Football club Bordeaux, PSG, OM, OL, ASSE: the top 10 top scorers in Ligue 1 in activity

Since July 11, an unwavering bond unites Lionel Messi and Angel Di Maria. The latter’s goal in the Copa America final against Brazil (1-0) allowed La Pulga to win their first international title. With that alone, Di Maria would have been in the good graces of the six-fold Ballon d’Or until the end of his days. But since then, Messi has arrived in Paris. And as L’Equipe explains in today’s edition, he relies heavily on his compatriot.

“It almost became a joke in the Parisian locker room. When someone is looking for Lionel Messi, just ask where are Leandro Paredes and Angel Di Maria. To eat as to change, the three compatriots rarely leave each other. The first few weeks, lunch at the Royal Monceau had almost become an unmissable event for this trio. The ex-Madrilenian plays a central role in the adaptation process of the six-fold Ballon d’Or. He even accompanies his compatriot on his family outings. In the sessions, Di Maria is also never far from La Pulga. To translate the instructions (even if the deputy Jesus Pérez uses a lot of Spanish) but also to inform Messi about the habits of the club. Pochettino was able to measure his central role with the star. « 

Di Maria, Messi’s first support in Paris

Since Lionel Messi put his luggage in Paris, Angel Di Maria has been supporting him on a daily basis. Whether in training, where he translates the directives, as outside, where he accompanies him for any approach.
