Messi’s set to make PSG Debut
Messi’s set to make PSG Debut according to the report. It has been revealed that on August 29, Lionel Messi is set to make his Paris Saint-Germain debut in a Ligue 1 match against Reims.
We observed that Messi has only been able to train with Psg three times since his astonishing free move from Barcelona last week, and he still needs time to reach the levels of fitness that Mauricio Pochettino requires.
It is no longer news that Messi’s pre-season was already delayed due to the fact that he reached the final and won the Copa America with Argentina for the first time.
As a result, he may not be able to start this Friday’s Ligue 1 match away to Brest, but there is a chance he may travel with the squad and possibly make an appearance off the bench.
The Argentine superstar was unable to make the squad for last weekend’s match against Strasbourg, so he sat in the stands alongside colleagues Neymar and Angel Di Maria.
Before the game, the former Barcelona legend Messi spoke to a packed Parc des Princes as the new signings were presented to the fans: “It has been a very special week for me. I want to thank everyone for the reception since I arrived in Paris. It has been truly incredible.”
After one of the most extraordinary transfer windows in football history, Pochettino currently has an even wider pool of quality at his disposal.
When asked how he manages Messi’s fitness and when the fans will see him play for PSG for the first time, the PSG manager replied: “As for when we might see Leo; it is his second day of training after a month since he played the last game at the Copa America.
“We will take it step-by-step, get to know each other, and have him feel fit and comfortable so that he is able to make his debut when he is fully fit.”
