the presence of Messi in Ligue 1 “is a luxury” according to Sampaoli

OM coach Jorge Sampaoli (61) coached Lionel Messi for the Argentina national team from 2017 to 2018.


The OM coach tried to explain the difficulties of adaptation of the Pulga in the French championship (1 goal and 1 assist only in 6 games): “He gave Ligue 1 another status when he arrived, after having spent his entire life in a club. It’s another football for him, another language. It will always be the best in the world, but it’s up to him to smile again, to find his football, to become this different player again. I think it’s a luxury for French football to have him here, but you also have to understand everything that this change of club has meant for him. “

During the OM 0-0 PSG match this season in Ligue 1, Lionel Messi was silent in the face of the training coached by Jorge Sampaoli. The 34-year-old is linked with PSG until 2023.
