Foot PSG – PSG: Neymar and Lionel Messi sentenced in Qatar

Wednesday night in Madrid, PSG completely failed against Real. The Parisian stars have suffered the most criticism, in particular Lionel Messi and Neymar, who have been so disappointing since the start of the season. Two players who are no longer essential for Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

We knew it, the fiasco suffered against Real Madrid on Wednesday would leave its mark on PSG. But, it could exceed all expectations. The 3-1 defeat against Madrid was not only the end of the club’s European season but also the last chapter of an exercise that had been little mastered by the Parisians until then. The level of collective play has never been up to par, due to the questionable coaching of Mauricio Pochettino but also the notable shortcomings of the stars of the team. The two players who symbolize this the most are Lionel Messi and Neymar.

PSG will not retain Lionel Messi and Neymar

The two former acolytes of FC Barcelona, ​​​​who had walked to Europe in 2015 with Luis Suarez, were expected in Paris as the two guides to the European coronation. However, both are light years away from their Catalan level. The Brazilian remains to this day the most expensive transfer in the history of football with the 222 million euros invested by PSG on him in 2017. A price with little return given his repeated absences for matches for almost five years. years. As for Messi, his crazy Barcelona statistics gave way to a record of two goals in Ligue 1 and a personal investment below the union minimum.

All this did not escape Nasser Al-Khelaifi, who left for Doha shortly after the humiliation in Madrid, especially since their performance against Real was in the same vein. According to the Spanish media Don Balon, the president of PSG does not spare his two stars who bear some responsibility for Wednesday’s elimination. They no longer enjoy a special status in the locker room and, worse, their place at PSG is suspended. The boss of the Parisian club is ready to give them up at the next transfer window according to DonBalon. «  PSG are not putting Messi and Neymar up for sale, but they will listen to any market proposal for them “, they write. A way to signify the end of the club’s hopes for them. However, given their remuneration, it will be very difficult to imagine seeing them leave so easily, and that, PSG also knows it very well. But it is also a way of proving to Mbappé that there is now a leader in this team, and it is the Frenchman.
