PSG: Messi suffering from bad luck – Pochettino
Following a disappointing first season at the Parc des Princes, Paris Saint-Germain manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has stood his ground that forward Lionel Messi is suffering from bad luck this season.
PSG fans and the media have slammed the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner after a disappointing first season at the Parc des Princes.
Recall that last summer, Messi completed a free transfer to PSG from his boyhood club, Barcelona.
The Argentine captain has scored just four Ligue 1 goals this season and then performed poorly as PSG were eliminated from the Champions League at the hands of Real Madrid in the round of 16.
Speaking on Messi’s unimpressive stat in his debut campaign at PSG, Pochettino was quoted by L’Equipe as saying: “I think it was due to bad luck. It’s unbelievable because we could have won the game on that last play, where he hits the bar.
“He’s a top-quality player, and I think he’s just suffering from bad luck this season. Unfortunately, with all those posts, he didn’t have the opportunity to score more goals.”
