Often critical of the average performances and attitude of the Argentine star, Jerome Rothen revealed yesterday in his show on RMC that Lionel Messi would have already left training because he... was "fed up": "Remember the day he left training. The club had hushed it all up by saying it was a small calf injury. It was all wrong, totally wrong. The reason? Monsieur was fed up with what he was offered in training. He went back to the locker room, he took a shower, he barred himself. It shows how much he respected his coach and his teammates."
Beyond this early departure during a training, the Pulga would have required several times to change the rhythm of training: "He wanted very often to change the rhythm of training. He didn't want to train in the morning. He has repeatedly told the staff that training in the morning is not good. That you have to train in the afternoon. Fortunately the staff did not give up. It shows that he wanted to change some things and that he did not want to adapt, "concluded former PSG player Jerome Rothen.
Revelations that will not help the image of the striker in the eyes of Parisian fans.
A start under the whistles
For several days, Messi and Paris, it's over. After his last home game against Clermont, the world champion announced in a video that he would join Inter Miami in MLS. Targeted by Paris fans who whistled him several times during the last Ligue 1 match and then during the trophy presentation this Saturday at the Parc des Princes, the former Barça player revealed that he had not been happy during his two years in France. One thing is certain, the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner will not be missed by Paris Saint-Germain lovers.
