Messi, Neymar or Mbappé? Spanish newspaper points out the star who is ‘owing’ the most at PSG today: ‘Disappointing’

The Spanish newspaper As commented which ace of the trio Neymar, Mbappé and Messi, from PSG, would be underperforming in the current season.


After the defeat of the Paris Saint-Germain to Manchester City, turned 2-1, this Wednesday (24) by the Champions League, the Spanish newspaper AT criticized one of the players of the trio Neymar, Messi and Mbappé.

For the periodical, the Brazilian is experiencing a “more than disappointing” moment in the current season.

“If there’s one player from PSG’s magic trio who’s going through a rough patch this season, it’s Neymar,” the paper said.

The number 10 shirt of the Parque dos Príncipes club has not yet scored in the four games he played for the competition. In the current season, the Brazilian scored just three goals and gave two assists.

The AS said those numbers are “very poor for the one who is, together with Messi, the highest paid in the squad”.

The newspaper believes that Neymar’s underperformance may have been caused by the player’s delay in the pre-season after the Copa America. He also points out that the new positioning determined by coach Mauricio Pochettino would also be hindering the ace.

According to AS, Mesi would be “monopolizing” virtually all PSG play.

“The current Ney has little or nothing to do with the one who marveled in his first year in Paris,” says the newspaper.

O PSG back to field by French Championship this Sunday (28), against the Saint-Etienne, at 9 am (Brasilia), with transmission LIVE by ESPN on Star+.
