Although Christiano fans may dispute this, Messi is probably the best player in the world today. The thing about him is that you never quite not what will come next from him. One minute he may be quiet and wham! out of nowhere he will produce this moment of brilliance that completely eclipses anything else in the rest of the game.
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola recently said of Messi: ''We know it’s impossible to control Leo during 90 minutes, he is unstoppable.''
Guardiola managed Messi when in charge of Barcelona and he hopes the six-time Ballon d’Or winner can continue his success in the French capital. “I wish him the best, if he is happy and enjoying this period in Paris I will be happy. He decided for many reasons to come here, for him and his family,” he said of the Argentinian’s move in the summer.
It's humbling and ironic at the same time to hear Pep talk of Messi in this way. Guardiola won it all with Messi during four glorious seasons at Barcelona – 14 trophies, including two Champions Leagues.All eyes will be on PSG this season as it fields one of the most star-powered squads across Europe. There will surely be style to spare on the pitch between Messi, Neymar, and Mbappe and I guess only time will tell if Messi pulls it off.
