PSG: You’re now grandfather of forest, your role in World Cup not clear – Piechniczek slams Messi
Former Poland manager Antoni Piechniczek has slammed Lionel Messi of Paris Saint-Germain.
Messi, according to Piechniczek, is now the forest's grandfather, but it's unclear what role he'll play for Argentina in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Since joining PSG from Barcelona last summer, Messi has failed to impress.
The seven-time Ballon d'Or winner, who was booed by PSG fans lately, has had a terrible season thus far.
At the Parc des Princes, the Argentine skipper has failed to find his feet.
And Piechniczek believes Messi has passed his prime, despite scoring a goal in PSG's 5-1 triumph over Lorient over the weekend.
"If Lionel Messi had been five or six years younger, this duel would have been more intriguing." Let's be honest about it. Messi is now the forest's granddad. He's not the same footballer he was a few years ago. It's unclear what role he'll play in the World Cup in Qatar, according to Piechniczek.
"Given Messi's present level, it's feasible that the coach decides to put him on the bench." In the Swedish squad, a role similar to that of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Play during the final 15-20 minutes of a game. It's possible that Messi has a fantastic tournament, but he's not the same Messi now that he's wearing the colors of Paris Saint-Germain."
