Henry, a former club teammate with Messi during their time together at Barcelona, wants PSG manager, Mauricio Pochettino, to play Messi in the middle position in his squad.

Messi is still adapting to PSG as he is yet to score a goal for the club in the French top-flight league.

“Messi is isolated, he is on the ball less", Henry told RMC Sport.

“I wouldn’t say he’s sad, but he’s isolated. I prefer him through the middle.

“I’m having trouble with Leo out on the right. In the middle, he can set the tempo. Something needs to be found in order to get Mbappe, Neymar and Messi to play together".

“I don’t think he can make the difference on the right, but then I don’t have the exact details from the tactical standpoint", he added.

“Obviously, when you stay high up and you get out of the way, you won’t have an impact. Then you have fewer balls going towards him.

“Messi doesn’t speak a lot, he speaks with the ball", Messi former teammate said. “For now, it’s Kylian’s team. Kylian is the one who’s making it shine most of all. The ball goes more towards him.

“At any single moment, there can only be one conductor, otherwise you can’t play at the same tempo. And in this team, there are too many conductors".
