PARIS – Argentine footballer Lionel Messi, less than two months after signing a contract with Paris, has stated that leaving Barcelona was not a mistake. He is behind the decision even though he has scored one goal since the shirt change.
The 34-year-old contributed to the Champions League win over Manchester City 2:0, but he is awaiting the premiere in the top French competition. He also did not win in the previous round of the French Ligue 1, in which he played a full minute and unexpectedly lost Paris Saint-Germain to Rennes 0: 2. The vice-champion lost a winning streak of eight consecutive games since the start of the season, and at the top of the table is six points ahead of Lens .

The Catalans were unable to offer Messima a new contract due to the poor financial situation of the club. He made his debut in the first team “Parsi” in the 2004/05 season, winning 35 titles and scoring 672 goals in all competitions. “I’m happy with my decision, it wasn’t a mistake to go to PSG,” Messi said in a preliminary interview with France Football magazine, which will be published in full on Saturday.
