PSG Sensation Flourishes Following Lionel Messi’s Exit Amidst Their Complex Relationship

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Vitinha has not only excelled this season for the capital club but also demonstrated remarkable personal growth. As a result, the Portugal international is enjoying a more successful Year 2 in the French capital. 

A recent report revealed that the departures of several veterans have not only opened up opportunities for him but also allowed the former FC Porto sensation to showcase his talent and take the next step in his development. 

The Parisians’ midfield saw several changes last summer, so it was a new group, and Vitinha has become one of the standouts. One reason is that PSG made decisions that made the midfielder feel more comfortable.

L’Equipe reported that Vitinha has come a long way in the PSG locker room, as he experienced complicated moments there last season. 

The 24-year-old’s relationship with Lionel Messi and the Argentinian’s closest teammates quickly disintegrated following an involuntary collision in training, to the point of influencing his performances.

Nonetheless, the summer departures did him a lot of good. Today, Vitinha is a popular element that mixes in all groups. Vitinha has made 36 appearances across all competitions this season, scoring six goals and registering five assists for the Ligue 1 side.
