Argentine football legend Juan Roman Riquelme reacted to the transfer of his compatriot Lionel Messi to ranks Paris Saint-Germain, Like other football stars, but he delighted the fans of the French club with exciting expectations, as well as Barcelona fans who are still living the shock of the departure of their first star.
In an interview with the American network “ESBN”, Riquelme expected that “Bulga” will carry a magic wand with him to France, to achieve an achievement that the Paris fans have been waiting for for many years, namely winning the Champions League.
The former Boca Juniors star said: “I think Messi will win the Champions League with Saint-Germain, and then return to Barcelona, to announce his retirement with him. I wish him that. If he does not achieve European success this time, he will not succeed in reaching it again.”
Riquelme’s statement came to the delight of the Barcelona fans as well, as I thought that his words stemmed from information he had heard from Messi, despite his assertion that it was only an expectation, from a player who is aware of the close relationship between the players who passed through the Catalan club with him, since he carried his colors at the beginning of the millennium.
The Argentine, who is famous for his wonderful techniques and the number ten, called on all football fans to enjoy what Messi will offer, along with the rest of the stars of Paris Saint-Germain this season, adding, “We are all eager to watch Messi have fun with Mbappe and Neymar, this is their golden opportunity to achieve the Champions League.”
While the Parisian fans are waiting for their stars to meet again, Messi and Neymar will attend the Argentine and Brazilian teams, respectively, and they will meet in the tenth week of the World Cup qualifiers, Qatar 2022, while Mbappe returned from the French team camp as soon as he suffered a muscle injury.
