While Leo Messi has rebounded at PSG this summer following his departure from FC Barcelona, ​​Thierry Henry admits that this transfer greatly surprised him at the start, although he is now delighted that he is be made for the Parisian club and Ligue 1.

A little over three months ago, the PSG was hitting the transfer market in a big way by tying up the services of Leo Messi. Taking advantage of the fact that he freely left FC Barcelona , the Parisian club signed him on a two-year contract with an optional extra year. Since then, the Argentinian is gradually acclimating to his new club, not being helped by the international truces that have followed since his arrival as well as some small physical glitches. And meanwhile, observers of PSG and football overall are getting used to seeing Leo Messi wearing a different shirt than that of FC Barcelona for the first time in his club career. Many of them also had difficulty in making this transfer at the beginning, and this is particularly the case of Thierry Henry .

“Of course that 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, ”explained Thierry Henry on Prime Video.
