Paris Saint-Germain face their test ahead of their vital Champions League clash against Bayern Munich when they take on Nantes.
Leo Messi’s latest free-kick against Lille gave Christophe Galtier’s side a breath of fresh air and motivation which they cemented during the thrashing of Marseille last week.
And what is far more significant is the relationship both on and off the pitch of their two big stars, Leo Messi and Kylian Mbappe. Their connection against Marseille has PSG fans dreaming of what they can produce at the Allianz Arena.
Former France international Robert Pires believes Messi has admitted that Mbappe is PSG’s star.
“From the outside, I have the impression that everyone has evolved and changed their attitude in contact with others,” he told Le Parisien.
“Kylian has become more disinterested in the game,” he said.
Regarding the Argentinian, he also said that “having been the king of Barcelona, the Argentinian gives the impression of having accepted Kylian Mbappé as the boss of the pitch in Paris and of having put himself at his service. It’s a mark of intelligence and humility because that’s what makes them win”.
The former Arsenal player believes both players breathe the same football and agreed to play together to change the little things about their game.
“It’s silly to say it, but it’s the reality; they play the same football”, continued Pires, who assured that “it works because not only do they have the same ideas and the same conception of the game, but also because there is a clear link between them”.
Finally, he underlined the connection saying that “as soon as one can please the other, they do.”
