Then Lionel Messi went to Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona late August, a lot of people were happy with the move and even tipped him for success with the French football giants.
Lionel Messi has not had much success in the Paris Saint-Germain Lineup since he joined the club and he as scored only one goal in more than 5 appearnaces for the Ligue 1 runner-ups.
His performances for his country this year has not been in doubt and it has made many to suggest that he deserves a 7th Balon D'or. His performances for Paris Saint-Germain have been in doubt and it is all down to one reason - he is utilized on the field as an attacking midfielder. For example, Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 5 goals already for Manchester United in more than 5 appearnances for them and it is because he is exposed to the defences easily as the target man upfront.
Lionel Messi is too hidden from the defence and he is finding it hard to score goals in that kind of situation, meaning he needs to be more exposed to the defence in order to score more. He needs to be the target man of the PSG attack or he needs to be lineup up in a '3-man' attack alongside Kylian Mbappe and Neymar. If this is put in place, he will surely prosper and score more goals.
