Lionel Messi has made Paris Saint-Germain WEAKER, claims Michael Owen
Paris Saint-Germain is unbalanced and “weaker” with Lionel Messi on the touchline.
That’s the contradictory opinion of former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen, who was unimpressed by Liga 1’s form in the 1-1 draw against Club Bruges on Tuesday night.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men could not beat Belgium as Messi, Neymar and Killian Mbape failed to impress at the top in the disappointing draw.
The former “Spurs” boss is struggling to find a balance between the side’s star front line and his former team.
And Owen believes that Messi’s inclusion has weakened the team as the former England star backs the Premier League’s roster to continue in the Champions League.
“No matter how much we drool at them, this PSG team with strikers are all phenomenal players,” Owen told BT Sport.
But three together makes him weaker for me and I don’t understand why they are favorites for him (Champions League). I think the English teams (Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Man United) are much better.
