Messi Reveals The People That Convinced Him To Join PSG

Lionel Messi revealed Neymar and Mauricio Pochettino played major roles in his move to Paris Saint-Germain.

The 34-year-old, who left Barcelona last week in a shock exit via a free transfer, took part in a press conference at the Parc des Princes before he was presented to the club’s raucous supporters and ultras outside the stadium.

Reports claimed former Barcelona teammate Neymar was messaging Messi continuously over recent months over a move to France, with the former Barcelona captain revealing that he was influenced by the Brazilian winger.

Speaking about Neymar, Messi revealed at the press conference, “I know him well. We were apart before but I think we are better together. Neymar was one of the reasons I came here.

“I know all of my team mates though. We’ve all met many times before. I can’t wait to play with the team-mates that I have, we have the same objectives.”

Messi also provided insight into his conversation with PSG head coach Pochettino, whom he telephoned before deciding to sign his contract with the French giants.

“The coach and coaching staff had a big part in the negotiations,’ Messi claimed. “When I saw it was possible, I spoke with him (Pochettino) straight away. I’ve known him for a while.

“I spoke to him, the fact we are two Argentines helped a lot. We spoke, it went well to begin with. The technical staff at PSG helped my decision.”
