La Liga President Javier Tebas swiped at Ligue 1, claiming that Argentine striker Lionel Messi is not getting the same exposure at PSG as he did at Barca.
How was everything?
Lionel Messi joined Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer following his departure from Barça in the summer of 2021. The Argentine player struggled for consistency in his first year at the Parc des Princes but looks back to his best this season as Paris Saint-Germain struggles on the domestic and European fronts again. Barcelona, meanwhile, has been relegated to the Europa League in his absence, but La Liga president Javier says there’s a lot less talk about Lionel now because he plays in a less competitive league.
What did Tebas say about Lionel Messi?
The president of La Liga during a sports summit in Ole said that he thinks Lionel Messi is not only missed in La Liga, he is missed in football because the French league is what it is.
According to Javier Tebas, he thinks that no matter how much he has been in Paris Saint-Germain, he is much less followed than when he was at Football Barça. That’s why football misses Messi and they hope he has a great World Cup because they can all see him there again. Tebas says he doesn’t see all the fans watching Paris Saint-Germain against Nantes, he doesn’t. According to the Spaniard, with Barcelona in the league, he saw him much more often.
A little about the topic
Barça vice-president Eduard Romeu has claimed that it will be financially possible for Lionel to return to the club next summer. Lionel Messi has also been linked with a move to Inter Miami’s MLS outfit, with his current Paris Saint-Germain deal expiring in June 2023, but the 35-year-old Argentine has yet to make a final decision about his future.
