PSG: He’s also human – Thierry Henry opens up on Messi’s moment of weakness


Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry, has opened up on Paris Saint-Germain star, Lionel Messi’s ‘moment of weakness’ at Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

Messi scored the only goal for PSG in their 1-1 draw with Lens to secure his first-ever trophy in France.

PSG are now 10 time league champions in France, level with AS Saint-Étienne, although the milestone came on a sour note.

A large section of the PSG supporters opted to leave the Parc des Princes prior to the end of the game.

They ultimately celebrated their Ligue 1 win outside the stadium.

Messi was not present when his teammates were celebrating their league title at the stadium and it sparked controversies.

However, Henry, a former teammate with Messi during their time at Barcelona, has claimed that the Argentine showed weakness by not coming out to celebrate their success.

According to the Frenchman, it is only natural for Messi to feel hurt by the whistling and booing of PSG fans as he is also human.

“We saw him [Messi] leave. Now being in speculation, I don’t like that too much. All I can say is that at some point when you find yourself on the pitch, you are often whistled.

“In this case, it has often been whistled lately at the Parc des Princes. You can be one of the greatest players in history or perhaps the greatest for some, it hurts. I’m saying maybe he didn’t want to celebrate that title at that time. Maybe he had other things on his mind and he’s a human being like everyone else.

“It is also a moment of weakness. He gave us a lot of fun, including a goal, which was not bad. But he has his weaknesses, like everyone else, maybe he showed a moment of weakness, didn’t come out, but he’s a human being first and foremost,” Henry told Prime Video Sport France.
