Lionel Messi Brought Down This PSG Player After a Clash

Lionel Messi ended up having a clash with a PSG player before leaving the club for Inter Miami.

Last year, PSG fielded an exceptional offensive trio: Mbappé, Messi, and Neymar. Exceptional on paper, this trio often lacked cohesion on the field. During his two seasons at PSG, Lionel Messi didn’t leave an unforgettable mark, and he even got noticed for having a falling out with Vitinha.

PSG is currently having a good season, holding first place in Ligue 1, set to play a quarter-final in the Champions League against FC Barcelona, and a Coupe de France semi-final against Stade Rennais.

This successful season may well coincide with the emergence of Vitinha. The Portuguese midfielder is a valuable asset for Luis Enrique, who places his full trust in him. His level is nothing like last season’s, which could perhaps be explained by the departure of a PSG star.

Vitinha Clashed with Messi

This season, Vitinha seems to be fully thriving with PSG. The Portuguese midfielder is an important part of Luis Enrique’s game plan.

Offensively, he’s crucial, having already scored six goals and provided five assists in all competitions this season. And perhaps his poor form last season was due to his clash with Lionel Messi.

Indeed, L’Équipe recalls that during a training session, Vitinha accidentally collided with Lionel Messi. The clash was not at all to the liking of the Argentine World Champion, who made his displeasure known. He and his close teammates soured their relationship with Vitinha, which greatly affected his performances.

The Argentine’s departure last summer has greatly benefited the Portuguese international, who has managed to secure his spot in the Parisian squad. Moreover, today, the Portuguese is highly regarded in the locker room.
