Anelka claims Messi is now ‘ordinary’

1 min read

Former Chelsea and Arsenal striker Nicolas Anelka has suggested that PSG star Lionel Messi is now “not so extraordinary”.

PSG faced Lille on Friday night. They beat their Ligue 1 rivals 2-1 but Messi was brought off at half time with his side 1-0 down.

Anelka has suggested that is not the same player for PSG.

“Today we demand from Neymar, but we can do the same with Messi. Since the beginning of the season it is not extraordinary either. There is a player who has six Ballon d’Ors and finally is not so extraordinary.

He added: “[Neymar] is going through a difficult moment. If the coach thinks he has to play to regain his level, he makes him play. Putting it aside or replacing it to break their morale is not going to fix things.

“In addition, he has a great salary, he is a star of French and world football. He is one of the best players in the league, although right now he is fighting to show it.

“He can do nothing, as afterwards, he can do everything on the field. You never know what will happen to him on the pitch. Pochettino trusts him and even without Neymar being well, the team continues to win.”
