Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has named forward, Lionel Messi, as the ‘best player in the world’.
Pochettino said this while commenting on Messi’s display in PSG’s Ligue 1 victory over Nantes on Saturday.
Messi, who did not score in five league games since arriving at PSG in the summer, ended his Ligue 1 duck on Saturday.
The Argentine captain found the back of the net against Nantes to help his ten-man side pick up a 3-1 win.
Speaking about Messi at his post-match press conference, Pochettino said,
“I don’t think he was worried about not having scored a league goal.
“He is a great champion, the best player in the world; so he knows how to come through difficult spells. He has the patience, and it’s good that he scored.”
“We played really well in the first half. For Messi, Neymar and Mbappe, I always said it was a question of connections, of spending time together and playing competitive matches. But the whole team played well, and it’s just a shame we didn’t score more goals in the first half.”
The victory saw PSG open up a 13-lead at the top of the Ligue 1 table ahead of second-placed Rennes.
