2 PSG players live different stories in Ligue 1

During the Ligue 1 of this year 2021, two great players of PSG lived diametrically opposed stories: Neymar and Messi.

Neymar: his injury which costs him 6 to 8 weeks of forced rest

With a composition of the most interesting, PSG is the favorite team of this Ligue 1. For example, the club has achieved a feat by winning 3 to 1 against St-Etienne. However, the victory has a bitter aftertaste for the team. Indeed, the number 10 of PSG suffered a tackle in the 87th minute and found himself on the stretcher a few minutes later. This is the Brazilian Neymar Jr, yet one of the star players of the team. Due to the violence of the tackle, the player suffered a sprained left ankle. It also presents ligament damage, leaving him on the sidelines for a period of 6 to 8 weeks. A real blow for PSG, which will have to do without an exceptional striker. However, Neymar should be restored by the round of 16 of the Champions League. Despite this, many have noticed the recurrence of injuries to the player.

In any case, that does not detract from the talent of the Brazilian. During this Ligue 1, Neymar will still have had a good season. Of the 10 games in which he has participated, he has 3 goals, as well as 3 assists.

Messi and his 7th golden ball

Other star player from PSG, Lionel Messi follows a path the exact opposite of his teammate. Indeed, one of the most beloved footballers in the whole world was crowned Ballon d’Or for the 7th times. A consecration for the Argentine who could not hide his joy. At 34, he achieved an absolute record. In a testimony full of emotion, Messi thanked his club, as well as FC Barcelona, ​​his former team.

It is with pride that he dedicates his victory to his teammates, to the staff as well as to the Argentine selection. Thanks to his coronation, Messi has attracted all eyes of football fans to Ligue 1. It is important to note that Ligue 1 is the least popular of the 4 major European leagues.

This golden ball is the first obtained by a French club for 30 years. The last was won by Jean-Pierre Papin, striker for Olympique de Marseille in 1991.

Nevertheless, it is time for Messi to prove that he is worthy of this Golden Ball. Indeed, during this Ligue 1 season, the striker scored only one goal, that of the PSG – Nantes match. The football world therefore expects a “comeback” in the statistics of one of the best scorers in the world.
