France claim: Despite the addition of Leo Messi, despite the star-studded squad and formidable attack, PSG still have serious problems. Following the disappointing 1-1 draw with Club Brugge in the opening round of the Champions League home stage, commentators are waiting to see if and how Mauricio Pochettino will find the formula to incorporate all the stars in attack without compromising defense and team balance.

"Vinaldom and Pardes did not exist on the pitch. If you want to play with three dominant strikers like Messi, Neymar and Ambape, you have to have connections that know how to cover them, that know how to hold the ball. For that to work, you need very specific connections. I do not ask them to be Iniesta or Xavi, but they have to look different, "BeIn Sport commentator Omar de Funska analyzed.

"Messi needs a ball in his legs. This is the dominance he knows. He is not one to run from side to side and turn areas around for other players. Despite the so-called dream trio, I have a hard time seeing PSG become a particularly good attacking team."

And there are also defense issues, of course.

"PSG must solve this dilemma. When it loses the ball, it needs a taxi to bring Messi, Neymar and Ambape back to the defense. At some point, that will be the team's weak point," said de Fonseca.

Not everything works smoothly.

Against Club Brugge.

In an interview with Spanish cadena this week, Herrera spoke of the change he is going through in Paris Saint-Germain under Pochettino alongside a host of stars, including Messi, Neymar and Ambape: "I understand every day that for our rivals, the games against us are The biggest - we're the season game of all our rivals. It's true that there are also teams like Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Barcelona whose rivals feel the same, but I'm happy to play with the best players and love to win. I told them (Messi, Neymar and Ambape) that our situation would not be good if it continued. "

On the MNM trio, Herrera added: "You can see that they enjoy collaborating with each other, and also those around them enjoy - even if they are not handed over to us in training. I see Messi, Neymar and Ambape very involved and playing with the world number one player is an inspiration to us all."

The Spaniard also said of Messi: "When Leo arrives, he is the first in the gym. There is also time to have fun, but when necessary he concentrates solely on training and this is an example of leadership. "If the best player in the world behaves like that, we should too." I was very surprised when he joined, even though they talked about it for months. "

Finally, referring to Sergio Ramos' situation: "He's already crazy and wants to play. He's a real leader and one who always wants to win and play, so I do not bother him with questions when he comes back. We really want to see him with us and I am convinced that when that happens, nothing will go wrong For him again. "
