Messi scored two goals in the game, which gave the French team maximum points against this opposition. PSG was the first club, Ronaldinho moved to in Europe after he left Brazil in 2001.
When I arrived in Barcelona, there was already talk of a fantastic young man like Messi. And later we trained together, I saw his quality. In each game and each training session, we saw that it was different. It was a pleasure watching him do it. He became a true friend to me. I am very happy to see him at the club where I started in Europe. It is something that I did not think about in my life. He was sure that his career at Barcelona would end. And, for me, it was a surprise. As I like PSG, it was a surprise, but I never thought I would see him with another shirt that was not the Barcelona one.
Messi completed a move from Barcelona to the Ligue 1 side during the summer transfer window. According to reports, the financial fair play rule in Spain was the reason the Argentine's contract was not renewed.
The move was one of the shocking transfers during the transfer window.
