How Messi Was ‘Forgotten’ by PSG…

In a public interview, 2022 FIFA World Cup Winner Lionel Messi openly admitted that his former club, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) 'failed' to congratulate him when returning from his World Cup triumph. This allegation has spread like wildfire, with the president of the Paris-based club, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, squashing the truth behind Messi's statement. "French fans are extremely hostile, so if Messi was to be paraded in the capital, it would have been ill-received," says Kamogelo Motecwane on the latest episode of the International News Desk.
