Paris Saint-Germain forward, Kylian Mbappe, has suggested that teammate Lionel Messi still has to adapt to life at the Parc des Princes even though he has won seven Ballon d’Or awards.
Mbappe said this while defending Messi, following the Argentine’s slow start to life at PSG.
The France international believes the 34-year-old is still adapting to life at his new club and is getting better.
Recall that Messi joined PSG from Barcelona in the summer of 2021.
“He’s a great player. I’m happy for him because we know he’s adjusting to a new life, a new city and a new club,” Mbappe told reporters after PSG defeated Saint-Etienne at the weekend.
“And even when you win seven Ballon d’Or, you have to adapt too. But he is getting better and better, he is happy and I always said it in the first part of the season, if we have a great Messi, it’s better.
“With him, it’s easy. I have always wanted to play with great players and great players are made to play with great players and we have a blast on the pitch. Personally, I really enjoy it.”
