PSG manager Christophe Galtier praised star striker Lionel Messi after questioning what it was like to manage the Argentine icon on Thursday. A new head coach took over as Paris Saint-Germain manager this summer, replacing Lionel’s compatriot Mauricio Pochettino.

The boss of Paris Saint-Germain said that he couldn’t be surprised how good Lionel Messi is, because when a player has such a record, such a number of matches, such trophies, it’s because you are a very big professional. According to Christophe Galtier, Lionel Messi confirmed this right away for him. Messi does all the training, he is involved, he smiles, he exchanges with his partners, he is an inspiration to their players and the new manager loves to see him on the field every moment, say hello to him every day, because he is a role model.
Lionel won everything, he just missed the World Cup, but at club level he won everything. The Argentine has won individual awards, but he is not satisfied, far from it.
