“He just doesn’t look like he fits in at PSG” – Darren Bent claims Lionel Messi Would Much Rather be at Barcelona (Details below)



Former Tottenham Hotspur star Darren Bent has claimed that PSG superstar Lionel Messi has simply failed to deliver what is expected of him in the French capital. Bent also believes that Messi probably regrets his decision to join the Ligue 1 giants, and that the Argentine legend doesn’t appear to be a good fit.

Bent further likened him to Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford , who has also recently been similarly accused.
Lionel Messi has undeniably struggled since his move to Paris last summer, scoring just seven goals in twenty-five matches across competitions this season. Lionel Messi’s ineffectiveness was further highlighted in the Ligue 1 giants’ recent loss to Real Madrid and their subsequent exit from the coveted UEFA Champions League.

Speaking to talkSPORT , Darren Bent said that although one can’t expect Messi to continue outshining his teammates with exemplary performances, the 34-year-old appears to be unhappy and truly struggling at PSG. With Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford finding himself in a similar situation, Bent has likened the duo due to their apparent misery at their respective clubs.

Following PSG’s defeat against Real Madrid, Bent said:

“One or two nice touches, but I was expecting so much more from [Messi].

“What I will say about Messi is that he looks like Marcus Rashford at Man United.

“Rashford looks miserable at United and Messi just looks like ‘I don’t want to be here’. Maybe the smile on his face would come back [if he returned to Barcelona].

“I don’t think we’ll see the Messi we saw that was head and shoulders above everybody.

“But he just doesn’t look like he fits in at PSG. I bet he’s probably thinking ‘I wish I was back at Barca’. He didn’t want to leave in the first place.”
