Despite the irregularity displayed by Lionel Messi since his arrival at PSG this summer, Nicolas Anelka remains convinced that his recruitment was a good idea.

Arrived free from FC Barcelona during the summer transfer window , Lionel Messi certainly hoped for a quieter start to their adventure with PSG . If his statistics are relatively good in the Champions League (3 goals, 1 assist and 4 appearances), the Argentine striker is still struggling to shine in Ligue 1 with only one small goal scored last week against FC Nantes . But some are asking for time for Messi at PSG

Anelka validates the arrival of Messi

Nicolas Anelka , former PSG scorer, commented on the Argentinian striker at RMC Sport's microphone: “Was it a mistake to recruit him? I do not think so. We still have to wait. What we saw today is not Barcelona’s Messi. He is not yet at his level. Is it because of the injuries? I do not know. Is it because it's a new club, new teammates? I do not know either. But we are entitled to ask for more. And the supporters too. We knew that Messi wouldn't run a lot. There is no surprise. He needs us to play with him, to lean on him, to play the game a bit, but the problem is he's not at Barcelona anymore. There are top players who need to go fast like Mbappé. Neymar also needs the ball to make a difference. They must share the booty three. Before he was almost the undisputed star of Barcelona. It's up to him to adapt, “said Nicolas Anelka .
