In La Liga, Lionel Messi also clears titles when he did not play there anymore. When the 34-year-old picked up his eighth Pi chichi at the March, the award for the Spanish Goal Scorer, he gave the Spanish newspaper a detailed interview. Messi talked about…
… the habituation of his new club, Paris Saint-Germain:
Meanwhile, I’m fine, we have adapted to Paris and all connected with it. Our children learn French faster than my wife and me. Within the team there is a big cohesion, but you have already noticed that before.
… PSG as the biggest favorites on the Champions League victory:
I do not want to deny that we are among the big favorites. But to be really strong, we have to become a team even more. We are still missing us.
… clubs who he still has on the note:
Liverpool is again strong, also Manchester City or Bavaria. Real Madrid and Atlético must always be on the bill, because Spanish clubs have always delivered in the Europapokal.
… his ex-club Barça, whom he has not enumerated:
You are currently not so good, are in a phase of reconstruction. That’s a young team. But she will fight and win again.
… his former teammate Xavi, who has taken over in Barcelona as a coach:
The players will have great respect for him. He will teach her and let the team grow, I have no doubt. We are joy and often talk to each other.
I have always said that I will return to Barcelona.
… the retrieval campaign of the 38-year-old Dani Alves:
His return has been very surprised, but I think he can be a good supplement. As Xavi, he can convey a lot to the young players because he was very successful. He will contribute much just off the place.
… a possible own return to Barcelona, the FCB President Joan Lakota presented in view:
I always said that I will return to Barcelona because it’s my home, and I’ll live there. If I can help the club by contributing, I would like to come back.
… his big rivals Cristiano Ronaldo and his return to Manchester United:
Cristiano has impressively adapted and shoots goals as always. But in the Premier League, it is harder than expected because that is a very difficult competition with many turns.

… the direct duels with the Portuguese:
Oh, that’s been a long time ago. It was a very nice time for us and for the people who enjoyed that. It will remain a nice memory in the history of football.
… another earlier adversary, Sergio Ramos, who is now his teammate in Paris:
It was strangely strange with him, after so many years in which we were the captains of Barça and Real; After so many Classics. But we already knew us a little and had always respected us very much. Having him now as a teammate is spectacular. He is a great person.
He speaks perfect Spanish.

… his storm colleagues Dylan Mbappé, who continues to be associated with a change to Real Madrid, and his language skills:
I honestly do not know if he will change, but I’m glad he stayed here. He is a very important player. He speaks perfect Spanish.
… his year in the Argentine national team with the Copa América title and the World Cup qualifier:
I could achieve one of my great goals that I had just missed several times. The World Cup qualifier has rounded off this great year. And now I want more. The dream of the World Cup title is always there.
