Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi completed his first season with the Ligue 1 powerhouse on Saturday, as he recorded an assist in the 5-0 win over Metz.
Messi took to Instagram on Sunday to share takeaways from his first season at PSG, where he acknowledged that it was quite a roller-coaster campaign.
“The season is over and I wanted to thank my teammates for the way they treated me since I arrived and my family for always accompanying and supporting me,” Messi wrote. “It was a different year because of everything that happened, but at the end of the day we won a league title that I was very excited to win because of what it means to be the first trophy here in Paris.
“We were left with the bitter taste of losing in the Champions League in a knockout round when we were the better team, but at the same time I want to keep the joy of having won another title, which was also one of our objectives. I am sure that good things are coming in 2022, it will be an important year and we will fight to be competing with ambition for everything. See you soon!”
