Messi: “Last year I had a bad time, I never finished finding myself”
Lionel Messi spoke to the media after the victory against Honduras and reviewed how his second season at PSG is going.
Lionel Messi believes he is now starting to find his feet at Paris Saint-Germain, but needed a year to settle in after his move to France. Messi scored just 11 goals in 34 appearances during his first season at PSG in 2021-22, but has already struck six times in 11 outings for the Ligue 1 giants in the current campaign.
The former Barcelona star is also enjoying himself on the international stage - he scored twice and added an assist as Argentina extended their unbeaten run to 34 matches with a 3-0 friendly win over Honduras on Friday.
PSG. “I feel good, I feel different than it was last year. I knew it was going to be like this. I said it before. I had a bad time, I never finished finding myself. This year is different. I arrived with another head, more accommodated to the club, to the locker room, to my teammates and to the game. The truth is that I feel very good. I enjoyed myself again.”
Last season. “Last year I had a bad time, I never finished finding myself. I expected it too, I knew it would be like that. But now I feel different. This year is different, I arrived with a different head, more comfortable with the club, the game, the locker room and my team mates. Now I feel good, I enjoyed myself again”.
Worldwide. “We are just as anxious as the people but we have to be calm. We have a great team for the World Cup. It is special, you have to go step by step. We are enjoying every moment that we are together, seriously preparing ourselves when it is our turn to work.”
