Mukiele analyzes just what went behind his key assist to Messi in PSG’s Win Over Angers

Nordi Mukiele put together one of the best performances from his ongoing first season at Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday.

Mukiele was penciled in to start at the right wing-back position in PSG manager Christophe Galtier’s three-at-the-back setup against Angers. Mukiele was on the stat sheet for PSG’s pair of goals in the Ligue 1 fixture, logging an assist on both scores.

On Mukiele’s second assist of the league match, he dished off a keen pass to a waiting Lionel Messi in the penalty box in the second half, and the Argentine forward ended up slotting home a right-footed goal.

Speaking after PSG’s 2-0 win over Angers (via PSG TV), Mukiele took some time to touch on just what went behind his pivotal assist to Messi.

“And for the second one, for Leo, I know that he is a player who is technically very gifted, and I just had to play it, and he finished, on his right foot, so I am very happy,” Mukiele said. “That’s how I feel, I feel much better now, but it’s just the beginning, it’s up to me to keep it going.”

Mukiele now sits at three assists to go along with a 0.5 key passes per match average over 16 league matches played this season.
