PSG: Neymar lays claim to Messi

Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar has claimed team-mate Lionel Messi has nothing to prove to his critics in his second season as a Parisian.

Messi has had a stunning first season at PSG after joining from Barcelona, ​​scoring 11 goals in 34 games.

This was fewer than the 38 goals he scored with Barcelona last year.

However, the Argentina captain assisted 14 goals, 10 of which came after the turn of the year.

Only Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele (11) has managed more in Europe’s top five leagues in 2022.

Messi impressed in his first competitive game of the 2022-2023 season on Sunday, scoring the opening goal in PSG’s 4-0 Trophee des Champions win over Nantes.

However, when asked if this portrayal was a sign of a new Messi at PSG, Neymar jumped to his colleague’s defence.

“I don’t think so. I think people talk too much,” said Neymar at his post-match press conference. “They don’t know what’s going on every day, what’s going on inside.

“Leo, it’s Leo. It’s still Leo, it doesn’t change. No, he continues to make a difference. He adapts.

“It’s obvious that we hope everything goes well for the three of us, for me, for Leo, for Kylian [Mbappe]. If the three of us are doing well, I’m sure it’s going to be good for the team.”
