PSG: He has no influence on team, switches off in games – Balague slams Messi


Popular football pundit, Guillem Balague, has accused Paris Saint-Germain superstar Lionel Messi of switching off in games.

PSG, who are unbeaten in Ligue 1 this season are preparing to face Lyon at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais on Sunday.

Messi was pivotal to PSG’s Champions League victory of Maccabi Haifa in midweek, scoring a goal and setting up another in a 3-1 win.

However, Balague said the 35-year-old Argentine maestro has had a lesser influence with PSG.

“He’s not the same player. And one thing is very clear; he’s not the captain; he’s not the leader,” Balague said on CBS.

“So he has a lesser influence on the side that is from a psychological and leadership point of view, which means that, he, how can I put it? Switches off a lot,” said Balague.
