“Leo is finished …”, Messi is knocked out after his failed performance against Real Madrid

Nothing is going well for Lionel Messi with Paris Saint-Germain. The Pulga was however irreproachable in the Champions League since its arrival in the French capital. The proof ? In five C1 games, the seven-time Ballon d’Or has found the net five times. A state that contrasts his terrible performances in Ligue 1 until then. But that was before the round of 16 first leg this Tuesday against Real Madrid during which he notably missed the penalty obtained by the Parisian hero, Kylian Mbappé. A failure that earned him criticism from everywhere.

The most scathing obviously come from Spain even if the teamwith the note of 3 inflicted on Wednesday, is not tender either. « Once again, on an important evening, he missed a penalty », is sorry Mundo Deportivo. But arguably the harshest criticism came from the show The Chiringuito where the columnist Jordi Jota, who followed him closely during his stays in Barcelona, ​​dropped a terrible “Messi is finished” on air. “It pains me to see Messi like this”concluded the journalist.

However, in England, sobriety was in order. Gary Lineker, despite his disappointment, found some mitigating circumstances, even if his observation remains quite implacable. “Messi turns 35 in June. Ronaldo just turned 37. We should probably lower our expectations. They always do wonderful things, but even these football gods can’t defy time forever. » concluded the former glory of English football.
