Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) manager Christophe Galtier has confirmed that Lionel Messi, the star forward, will be playing his last game for the club at the Parc des Princes on Saturday. With Messi's contract expiring in June, there has been widespread speculation about his future destination for the next season.
Galtier's statement came ahead of PSG's final game of the season against Clermont Foot, where he praised Messi as the best player in the history of football. He expressed his hope for the Argentine to receive a warm farewell from the fans.
At the age of 35, Messi recently led Argentina to victory in the World Cup held in Qatar and helped PSG secure their second consecutive Ligue 1 title this season. However, there have been signs of a strained relationship between the player and the club, evident from the club-imposed suspension Messi faced for an unauthorized trip to Saudi Arabia, which resulted in a missed training session.
Galtier defended Messi against criticism, emphasizing his importance to the team throughout the year. He stated that Messi had always been available and played a significant role, dismissing the notion that any criticisms or comments against him were justified. The manager expressed his privilege in accompanying Messi throughout the season.
During PSG's title-clinching match, Messi surpassed Cristiano Ronaldo's record by scoring his 496th goal in Europe's top five leagues, further solidifying his status as one of the greatest players of all time.
While rumors circulate about a potentially lucrative deal in the Middle East, Messi's representatives have consistently refrained from commenting on his future beyond his time at PSG.
As Messi bids farewell to PSG, football enthusiasts eagerly await news of his next chapter, eagerly anticipating where the legendary player will continue to mesmerize audiences with his extraordinary skills and abilities
