Messi: PSG Best Place For Me To Win Champions League Again 

Messi: PSG Best Place For Me To Win Champions League Again 

Lionel Messi has said joining Paris Saint-Germain after leaving Barcelona gives him the best chance of winning the Champions League for a fifth time.

Messi signed a two-year contract with PSG on Tuesday, just days after Barcelona announced he was leaving the club he joined 21 years ago.

But despite the upheaval, the forward says he is now focused on bringing success to the French capital – particularly in the Champions League, which has proved elusive so far.

When asked if PSG – who were runners-up in 2020 – could make the final step, Messi said: “I think this team is already done and ready.

“There are some new transfers but they have been very close and they are ready.

“I just came here to help – I’ll give my best. My goal and my dream is to win this trophy again and I think that Paris is the best place to have a chance to win it again.

“It’s not easy. Sometimes you can have the best team in the world and you don’t win the Champions League – this is football.

“Paris has been so close to a victory in the Champions League. In the best competition, the best teams are playing.

“It’s very difficult to win it. You need a very united squad. This dressing room is very united but you also need luck.

“It’s a very special competition and that’s why it’s so beautiful and so important – we all want to win this competition.”

Messi’s most recent triumph in the Champions League came in 2015, when a Barcelona team spearheaded by him, Neymar and Luis Suarez beat Juventus in Berlin.

    With the benefit of hindsight, it is now clear that the long affectionate hug between Messi and Neymar after the Copa America final was a harbinger of things to come. Apart from the financial rewards, Messi must be looking forward to reuniting with his buddies Neymar and Di Maria.
    And who would not like to play with the explosive Mbappe? Messi would relish the idea of wrecking havoc alongside the Frenchman. I see Mbappe leading the line, with Messi, Neymar and Di Maria playing behind him, switching positions, and bamboozling the heck out of their opponents.
    I’m not a betting man, but if I had to bet on a team to win the Champions League, PSG are looking good for the money. A team that parades the FANTASTIC FOUR – Messi, Neymar, Mbappe and Di Maria. Alonside several other top players. And a good coach to boot.
    I expect the FEARSOME FOUR to produce a tremendous display of attacking football this season, in all a competitions.
