The French club Paris Saint-Germain was keen to honor the stars of Argentina and the Italian national team, who won the Copa America 2021 and Euro 2020, on the sidelines of Tuesday’s training.
And the official account of the French club Paris Saint-Germain was published, showing the Argentine trio Lionel Messi, Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes, crowned with the Copa America title, along with the Italian duo Marco Verratti and Gianluigi Donnarumma, crowned with the European Nations Cup title.
In another context, Spanish press reports revealed that Lionel Messi, the striker and winger of Paris Saint-Germain, is the closest candidate to win the Ballon d’Or award from the French magazine France Football for the year 2021..
Over the course of his career that began in 2004, Messi has 6 golden balls, which he managed to obtain during the years 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015 and 2019.
The Catalan newspaper, Sport, wondered if there was any competitor for the Argentine international, who won two championships this year, the Copa America and the King’s Cup..
And Sport reported that the candidate who could compete with Messi is the midfielder of Chelsea and the Italian national team, Jorginho, who won the European Nations Cup, the European Champions League and the European Super Cup..
There are other candidates such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Robert Lewandowski as well as Kylian Mbappe alongside Harry Kane, but their chances are not as strong as Messi and Jorginho..
Paris Saint-Germain fans are preparing to watch the first appearance of Argentine legend Lionel Messi since joining the club this year, Sunday, as Paris Saint-Germain will visit Reims in the fourth week of the French League this season.
