It appeared that the PSG club had made a deal to prevent friction between the two finest players when they returned to the squad after the 2022 World Cup, according to Marca. The rivalry between France and Argentina with Mbappe and Messi finished in a very drаmаtic match.
PSG has regularly offered Messi permission to take time off in order to celebrate the 2022 World Cup, and he has taken advantage of this. These remarks were made by Head Coach Christophe Galtier and Mr. Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the President of the Club.
It just so happened that Mbappe made the decision to resume training with PSG a little more than two days after the conclusion of the 2022 World Cup. Before being granted permission to take a few days off with his close friend, defender Achraf Hakimi, he participated in two Ligue 1 matches, winning Strasbourg 2-1 (scoring the game-winning goal) and losing to Lens 1-3. He scored the game-winning goal in the victory over Strasbourg.
At the same time, Lionel Messi made the announcement that he would be returning to Paris Saint-Germain, where he had previously been greeted by two welcome lines consisting of players and staff.
According to Marca, even though there was a valid explanation for why Mbappe and Hakimi were not present at the welcome ceremony that was prepared by the PSG team, this only served to accentuate the friction that exists between Mbappe and Messi.
In addition, PSG manager Christophe Galtier has stated that Lionel Messi will play in the club’s Ligue 1 encounter against Angers, which will take place at the Parc des Princes in the middle of the following week. Angers will be the opponent.
According to the publication Marca, it is likely that Mbappe will be unable to participate in both this game and the one in which PSG fans will pay tribute to Messi because he has just recently returned from holiday and has had very little time to relax.
“Bukayo Saka is as excellent as Messi heir”
The legendary Tony Adams compared Bukayo Saka’s play through the first half of the season to that of the great Lionel Messi. Saka had a strong showing.
Bukayo Saka is just as excellent as Messi.
Bukayo Saka’s talent and adaptability are unquestionable attributes.
The English player’s bravery has been put to the test after encountering challenging obstacles such as missing the go-ahead penalty in the final of Euro 2020 and being unable to represent his club in the Champions League. Both of these setbacks have resulted in the player being unable to play in either competition.
There is currently no new contract in place between Arsenal and Saka.
With 7 goals and 6 assists in all competitions, the English player has helped the “Gunners” climb to the top of the Premier League standings this season.
Legendary Tony Adams recently compared Saka to Messi – who just won the World Cup with Argentina.
“I think the best player this season is Saka. He is truly extraordinary. I criticized Southgate at the World Cup for taking him off the pitch.
Everything that Saka does is as good as Messi, but of course Messi is at the end of his career. Even if you doubted Saka and he missed a penalty in the Euros, he’s back. Every time I watch him, I see him creating goals and scoring goals. This is a top footballer, the best player in England and Arsenal’s best player.”
Saka contributed three goals for England in their journey to the quarter-finals of the World Cup 2022. The value of this player is continuously increasing after stellar performances for club and country.
