Thierry Henry: Lionel Messi is isolated at PSG


Leo Messi’s former teammate Thierry Henry feels that PSG could get more out of the former Barcelona player. The Argentine is still accustomed to Ligue 1, who has not scored in four home games so far this season, and criticism of Messi’s exit from France’s top flight.

‘Leo is not alone, he is in a little bit of football,” Henry told RMC Sport. “I’m not saying you’re sad, but you are alone. I prefer him to go through.

“I have a problem with Leo coming from the right. In the middle, Leo can set the tempo. Something has to be done for Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, and Leo Messi to play together.”

The former Barcelona striker has continued to question Leo Messi’s position under PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino.

“I don’t think he can make a difference right, but I don’t have the exact details of his strategy,” Henry said.

“Obviously if you sit up and get out of the way, you won’t be affected. Then you have a few balls towards him.”

Henry, who played for Leo Messi for three years in Barcelona from 2007-2010, said the current PSG team belonged to Kylian Mbappe, but insisted the club should focus more on Leo Messi than the Frenchman.

“Leo Messi doesn’t talk much, he talks to the ball,” said Henry. “Right now, it’s Kylian’s team. Kylian is the one who makes it the brightest. The ball goes too far for him.

“At any time there can be only one driver, otherwise you can’t play at the same time. And in this team, there are too many drivers.”
