The famous Lionel Messi will take a 10-day break from his responsibilities with Paris Saint-Germain following a tense World Cup match in Qatar. According to current rumors, the Argentina captain has returned to the team in time for the January 7 Cup of France encounter against Chateauroux.
Messi will unavoidably meet Kylian Mbappe for the first time since the World Cup final as he gets ready to report for duty at PSG.
But when the majority of the PSG team takes a day off following a 1-3 defeat to Lens in the 17th round of Ligue 1 play, L’Equipe reports that Messi won’t be present in training with Mbappe. Nuno Mendes and Presnel Kimpembe, who are both recovering from wounds, are present. Throughout Messi’s training session, Ant will be present. In addition, despite prior fitness difficulties, Timothée Pembélé and Renato Sanches both make a comeback.
Messi will have a routine medical exam before taking part in a short training session before rejoining the rest of his team for full training.
The superstar, who is 35 years old, arrived, and the coach Christophe Galtier said: “He will without a doubt receive a warm welcome in his hometown. In terms of the reception he will get at the Park of the Princes stadium, I am confident that the crowd there will welcome him with enthusiasm. He received the most prestigious prize as a result of his exceptional performance throughout this World Cup. Above all, we must remember that Messi just scored a fantastic goal, and we must do so. We’d like to know more about what he’s been up to with the team since the start of the season.”
Prior to the World Cup final, there was a lot of curiosity about the pairing of Messi and Mbappé, especially after it was revealed that Mbappe looked up to Cristiano Ronaldo as his role model and thought the striker was “invulnerable” in the game. Messi battled it out with.
Mbappe’s PSG colleague Abdou Diallo previously stated the following: “Cristiano Ronaldo is regarded as the most significant player in the world by Kylian Mbappe. If you bring up Lionel Messi in conversation with Cristiano Ronaldo, Mbappe would argue with you for at least an hour. He thinks Cristiano is unstoppable.”
Messi has become one of Paris Saint-most Germain’s spectacular players after a difficult debut season (PSG). In 19 appearances across all leagues with Les Parisiens, the 35-year-old attacker has contributed 12 goals and 14 assists.
Ronaldo refused the European ‘stops’ to move to Al Nassr
Cristiano Ronaldo officially made his debut with the Al Nassr club last night, January 3. When CR7 was given the chance to play for the local club, Mrsool Park’s stands witnessed a gathering of more than 25,000 spectators.
Cristiano Ronaldo revealed at his first press conference with the Al Nassr club that he was being pursued by numerous European teams but ultimately decided to relocate to Saudi Arabia in search of a fresh challenge. This is also related to the debut. Along with the debut, this disclosure was made.
“I was interested in a wide variety of teams across the world, including those in Europe, Brazil, Australia, the United States, and even Portugal. There were several people who attempted to sign me. However, I was interested in working here. I was aware that I had to. Not only will I assist the club in the sport of football, but also in a wide variety of other endeavors.
I am quite happy with the decision I took. I have achieved everything I set out to do in Europe; I have competed for the top clubs and won every trophy there is. I created new standards there, and now I want to do the same in Asia.
This article also states that one of the reasons CR7 joined Al Nassr was to keep a commitment he made to the Juventus head coach while he was still a player for Juventus. Two years ago, Rudi Garcia was given this assurance.
“I faced Rudi Garcia in Lyon in 2020. At the conclusion of the match, I gave him my contact information and inquired about the next club he would be playing for. I gave him my word that I would always be on his side, no matter what. In the end, I was able to fulfill my commitment. Winamax Sport cited CR7 in their article.
In response to the 37-year-old attacker, head coach Rudi Garcia then expressed his excitement, as well as his enthusiasm to work with the player who has won 5 Golden Balls on the pitch.
“Ronaldo is a legend and the greatest player in the history of the game. Working alongside someone of his caliber is a privilege. Perhaps there is nothing more for me to teach him. In order to be of service to the squad, Ronaldo and I will discuss our previous endeavors. successful ball.
My intention for Ronaldo is to bring joy to his life. I want him to have fun and be successful while playing for Al Nassr.
Soon after the official unveiling of the new club, Ronaldo reported to the first practice with his new teammates. The Portuguese superstar is said to be on track to play in the Arab Pro League match between Al Nassr and Al Taee on Thursday of this week (5/1), as reported by the Daily Mail.
Ronaldo made his great debut in front of 25,000 supporters on Mrsool Park after undergoing medical examinations and signing a deal with Al-Nassr for the next two and a half years (until the summer of 2025).
If the former MU striker did not make a critical mistake in the first press conference in Al-Nassr, this would be a beautiful day. In particular, during the press conference that was held to unveil the new club, Cristiano Ronaldo made a statement that was described as “sʜᴏᴄᴋɪɴɢ”:
“For me, coming to South Africa (South Africa) is not the end of my career,” Ronaldo remarked during a press conference held on the evening of January 3 to inaugurate Saudi Arabia’s Al Nassr club. The conference was held in Saudi Arabia. “This is the reason why I want to make changes, and to tell you the ᴛʀᴜᴛʜ, I truly don’t care what other people think. I am taking full responsibility for the choice that I have made.”
Because he has previously been correct on Saudi Arabia, it’s possible that this is merely a little slip-up on his part. Nevertheless, Ronaldo is still subject to scrutiny as a result of this error.
Goal.com, a well-known football journal, was another publication that did not miss out on the chance to make fun of the Portuguese star. The headline in the newspaper read: “Give Ronaldo the map, will you please? Regarding South Africa, he made an embarrassing error in judgment.”
Jake Buckley, a commentator from Australia, also provided some comedic relief. On Twitter, he posted the following statement: “Saudi Arabia gave Ronaldo $200 million simply to hear him call them South Africa.”
In light of the fact that no major European club made an offer to Ronaldo before, during, or after his ᴅʀᴀᴍᴀ with Manchester United, the player ultimately decided to sign with Al Nassr. Ronaldo has the biggest annual salary in the sports village, which is approximately 200 million euros, and the Asian representative acknowledges this.
It has been rumored that Ronaldo will shortly compete against Messi while playing for Paris Saint-Germain in a friendly encounter that will take place on January 19 in Saudi Arabia.
