Leo Messi may be carrying an injury that prevents him from playing consistently these days, but since joining Inter Miami the smile has hardly left his face. In this spirit, he recently held an interview with the Argentine YouTube channel OLGA, in which he once again expressed disappointment with the treatment he received at Paris Saint-Germain.

Messi was asked if he would have preferred, in retrospect, not to play for the French club: "Things turned out that way," he replied, "The truth is that it wasn't as I expected, but I always say that everything happens for a reason. I wasn't at my best there, but it happened that I became a world champion there, so that's the way it should have been. You can understand, I was in a country where we beat in the World Cup final and it's our fault they didn't finish as champions. I was the only player from Argentina who didn't get recognition in his team."
