Consultant for Prime Video Sport, Thierry Henry validated the arrival of Lionel Messi at PSG, for the Parisian club and all French football.
During the last summer transfer window, PSG was able to strike a blow by recruiting Lionel Messi without paying the lower transfer fee to FC Barcelona where his contract expired last June and which could not be renewed due to Barca's financial crisis. For the next two seasons and an optional third, Lionel Messi will be able to delight supporters of PSG and all of Ligue 1 according to Thierry Henry who draws a lot of positive from the coming of Messi to Paris Saint-Germain.
“Of course it's good for Ligue 1 and for PSG”
“I was surprised at the start to see Lionel Messi leave Barcelona. Even told him he did not expect it. Now he comes to PSG. Paredes, Di Maria and his friend Neymar must have told him about it. He sees that he has the capacity to be part of a team that can win. Already the Championship, and I hope for him and French football the Champions League. But it makes me weird to see him with the colors of PSG. Of course that's good for Ligue 1 and for PSG. Whether in jersey sales or in the field. We know that he still has not scored in the Championship but he has already done so in the Champions League. Lionel Messi in Paris, it's extraordinary. I think people are following Ligue 1 more now, as with the arrival of Zlatan and the others afterwards. […] It even exceeds Ligue 1. But I'm happy to see what PSG and the Championship have been able to do as well. Like what OL had done in the past to maintain Ligue 1 at a certain level ”. said Thierry Henry in an interview with Prime Video Sport.
