It was the moment all the football fans were waiting for. Lionel Messi scored his first goal with the PSG shirt, and the realization came in front of the Manchester City of his former coach, Pep Guardiola. This was the first goal in the career of the Argentine, with a different shirt from that of Barcelona. In this way, the youngest superstar of PSG, ended 264 minutes without a goal, since his arrival in France. Moreover, the Parisians won the match 2-0 against the "citizens".
The Argentine, who was visibly excited by this achievement, told the media after the match:
"I can say that it is true that I was becoming more and more desperate to find the first goal. I hadn’t played many minutes lately and had only played 1 game here at home. But, I am starting to take my place in the team little by little. "
"The more we strikers play together, the better our relationship will be. We need to grow together, improve, and continue to give our best. ”
After the meeting, even coach Pochettino could not hide his enthusiasm:
"Usually I do not celebrate goals, I keep the joy to myself. But today I did it for Messi. I spent years watching Messi score goals from the perspective of his opponent. So this time, when he scored for my team, it was fantastic. "
Guardiola himself was forced to concede defeat, expressing his admiration for the former Barcelona number 10:
"We all know that it is impossible to control Leon for 90 minutes. "He did not move the ball much during the match, but when he had it on his feet he was unstoppable."
