Arsenal legend, Emmanuel Petit has criticized Paris Saint-Germain forward, Lionel Messi.
Petit said PSG have been witnessing the death of one king and the rise of another since Messi joined the Ligue 1 giants from Barcelona last summer.
According to him, he feels genuine pain when he watches Messi on the pitch, adding that he wants the Argentine to tell us a story like he told thousands in Barcelona.
“I feel genuine pain when I watch Messi on the pitch. We all want him to succeed, to take our hand and tell us a story like he told thousands in Barcelona,” Petit said on RMC Sport.
“I don’t want to pit Messi against Mbappé. But for several months, we have been witnessing the death of one king and the rise of another.”
He added, “I know that this guy has an oversized ego, but at some point, he will have to understand that as long as he is not well, especially mentally, he will not be able to become the Messi of Barça again.”
“I hope that by the end of the season, we will be able to see the great Messi intermittently, but over time it is no longer possible.”
