According to the biographer of Lionel Messi, the latter would be totally under the spell of the atmosphere that reigns within the Parc des Princes.
After more than twenty years at Barcelona, Lionel Messi left Catalonia in August 2021 to join Paris Saint-Germain. The Argentine icon has thus gone from Camp Nou to the Parc des Princes, and therefore from a very cozy atmosphere to a warmer atmosphere. And it is not to displease the sevenfold Ballon d’Or.
According to his biographer Guillem Balague, Lionel Messi was impressed by the atmosphere of the Parc des Princes. “He is completely hallucinating! This was already the case the day he arrived at the airport, when he stuck his head out to greet the public and there were thousands of them, in the rain, to welcome him with flags and drums.thus confided the Spanish journalist during an interview granted to 20 minutes.
” He loves it “
“It’s true that the atmosphere at the Parc des Princes has nothing to do with what he experienced for almost 15 years at Camp Nou and he loves it, continued Guillem Balague. This noise, these smells of smoke, it’s something very anchored in Argentine culture and I know that he gets a kick out of playing in this stadium. »
If he enjoys playing in the enclosure located at Porte d’Auteuil, Lionel Messi has been sulking about Parisian supporters since the elimination of PSG in the knockout stages of the Champions League last season. It must be said that the 2022 world champion was heavily whistled by part of the public during the following match, against the Girondins de Bordeaux. What he has obviously still not digested.
