Ligue 1: Pundit Explains Why PSG Shouldn’t Celebrate Messi’s World Cup at Parc des Princes

Lionel Messi has returned to training at Paris Saint-Germain and now there’s speculation as to whether the capital club will celebrate the veteran forward winning the 2022 FIFA World Cup. 

However, one pundit believes it’s not a good idea. During a recent episode of L’Équipe du Soir (h/t Canal Supporters), Didier Roustan stated that PSG should pass on honoring Messi’s accomplishment. 

Roustan believes that the veteran forward having won the World Cup over his teammate and France while currently playing for a French club isn’t the right recipe for a celebration. 

“The problem is that Lionel Messi beat France and Kylian Mbappé at the same time,” Roustan said. “This can cause big problems. He might even get whistled and it would loop around the world. In my opinion, that would be a risk. If the final had been Argentina – England the question would not even arise.”

Messi’s PSG teammates did give the Argentine upon returning to training on Tuesday, including a hyped reaction from Neymar Jr. Perhaps that might be enough for the player, but nothing has been officially announced.

PSG’s next game home game will be on Jan. 11 when they host Angers at the Parc des Princes and Mbappe is likely going to be back from his mini-vacation as he’d yet to take time off after the World Cup.
