Leo Messi has only been in Paris for a week and his incorporation has meant a new dimension for PSG. The Argentine star has monopolized all training sessions, increasing the safety of Camp des Loges and increasing the number of cameras that have access to the first 15 minutes of each session of the Parisian team. According L’Equipe, the device generated to follow the day to day of Rosario is something historical within Ligue 1.
The French newspaper indicates that, although Messi has been very discreet in the dressing room, unlike Sergio Ramos, his simple presence has generated an extraordinary effervescence in the squad. The homegrown players who train with the first team, Dina-Ebimbe, Michut, Gharbi or Kalimuendo are the ones who have shown the most enthusiasm and respect for the former Barcelona player, dreaming of having a minute this season to be able to live an unimaginable experience months ago.
What’s more, several PSG players have stopped their departure due to the simple arrival of Messi. According L’Equipe, There are many members of the Parisian team’s squad who have decided to continue in the French capital despite Pochettino’s lack of opportunities. Everyone sees it possible to win the Champions with the Argentine international and they do not want to miss the opportunity to experience the Messi effect from within.
Both Pochettino and Messi hold daily conversations so that the integration of the brand new signing of PSG is immediate. Messi will not debut tomorrow against Brest as he is not 100% physically and his debut could take place on August 29 against Reims. The Argentine coach does not want to force him and will only give him minutes when he considers that he is ready to compete at the highest level.
On the other hand, Kylian Mbappé is another of the players who is fascinated by training with Messi. Privately, as reported by L’Equipe, Bondy’s has told his friends that “Guys, it’s Messi”, showing that it is not necessary to describe what it means to train with the best player in the world. The PSG cameras immortalized last Wednesday a play in which both met on the pitch and generated good feelings for the Parisian fans.
L’Equipe indicates that Messi has decided to spend a lot of time with his family to acclimatize to his new life in Paris. The player is in the luxurious Royal Monceau hotel and, in addition, he has been seen on social networks going out to dinner with his family to enjoy the French capital. Last Saturday he discovered for the first time the Princes Park in a historic presentation and, if all goes smoothly, he will debut before his new audience on September 12 against Clermont.
