‘He Will Become the Great Player’ – Pundit Believes Lionel Messi Will Regain Barcelona Form

Following a battle with Covid-19, Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi played his first game of 2022, coming in as a substitute against Stade de Reims. The 34-year-old played 27 minutes, providing an assist and two key passes in his limited action. 

During a segment on Téléfoot (via Canal Supporters), French football pundit Bixente Lizarazu spoke about what he expects from Messi for the remainder of the season. 

“I think he will become the great player he was with Barça in the second half of the season. It is true that at Barça, the team played for him, there he had to adapt to PSG. I think he managed the adaptation. He spent 20 years in Barcelona; the departure was made in confusion, in tension,” Lizarazu said. 

“You have to digest all that a bit. It is true that in Ligue 1, it is not in its standards; in the Champions League, on the other hand, it is. He is a great champion, and I am convinced that in the upcoming matches in UCL, he will be decisive.”

Messi will have to continue rounding into form as the Argentine forward is going to be counted on by the squad to help them with their UEFA Champions League matchup against Real Madrid. 

When the capital club decided to sign Messi after his unexpected departure from FC Barcelona, they viewed him as one of the last pieces that can get the Ligue 1 side back to the Champions League final and win it. 

He will have the opportunity to get PSG past the Round of 16 when they play against a team and at a stadium he’s familiar with and has had plenty of memorable moments over these two legs.
