Former Arsenal captain, Thierry Henry has defended Lionel Messi’s time at Paris Saint-Germain.
According to Henry, Messi couldn’t be “the boss” alongside Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
Messi spent two years at PSG and left this summer upon the expiration of his contract, before joining Inter Miami in MLS.
While he scored 32 goals in 75 matches, that was way down on the numbers he was chalking up at Barcelona, even in his last few seasons at the club when he was past his peak.
In an interview with former PSG midfielder Jerome Rothen, Henry was asked if he was disappointed with Messi’s stint in Paris – which yielded three trophies.
He said on RMC Sport: “No, I’ll say why. I remind you when I arrived at the beginning, on Amazon, I said ‘For me to play this team, it’s a headache’. I was once again talking about structure, organization. I know you’re going to laugh again, but how do you play with all three (Messi, Neymar, and Mbappe) at the same time?”
