Why Lionel Messi Is Yet to Return to PSG
Having the world cup in the middle of a league season can be a positive and yet a negative thing for players, and what’s to say it isn’t the same for players like Lionel Messi who go all the way to ultimately win it, considering at the moment, current club, Paris Saint Germain (PSG) have some questions to answer in that regard.
Questions like how does the French club handle the pressure of Lionel Messi winning the world cup or perhaps when the Argentine is set to return to PSG for the continuation of the season.
The precise time that Lionel Messi will resume playing for his team, according to Christophe Galtier, manager of Paris Saint-Germain.
After Argentina won the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, Messi stayed behind and won’t return until after the Ligue 1 team’s match against Lens at the beginning of 2023.
Kylian Mbappe’s France lost to Messi’s Argentina in the World Cup final, which they won 4-2 on penalties.
Mbappe has resumed practicing with the French team, but Messi is enjoying the victory at home.
Galtier spoke to the media prior to PSG’s matchup with Strasbourg saying in a quoted statement:
“We did it on a case-by-case basis, there are the players eliminated very early who had ten or twelve days and who all returned on time.
“Those who went further like Hakimi who made a very big run. I’m thinking of Kylian and Leo. Hakimi and Kylian wanted to come back quickly with us in the group.”
“Leo due to his geographical location and his victory will join us at the start of the year after ten, eleven days.”
