Fabregas backs Messi, Lashes Out at Critics; A Penalty Miss Saga Against Madrid.
Having played alongside Messi for a while Fabregas the renowned Arsenal center Midfielder feels the need to point Messi critics in the right directions and right their wrongs for suggesting that Messi isn’t doing all well for PSG.
In a twist, Messi handed a late winner assist to Mbappe in their earlier Ligue 1 match which saw them a goal winner in the match but following the no impact in the Champions league clash against Madrid, one can only assume Messi isn’t doing quite much for the French Giants.
Also the awkward way he postured himself during the celebration of Mbappes goal sums it all up.
Here is what Fabregas said
“I have read things from people who must not have seen him play against Real Madrid,” the former Spain international told Mundo Deportivo. “Without being stellar, he played a good game.
“He put Mbappe through on goal in the first half with a pass that none of the other 21 players could’ve pulled off. He missed a penalty. So what? Judging him for that seems ridiculous to me.
“I remember Luis Enrique’s first year [as Barcelona coach] in which [Messi] was criticised a lot. There was a crisis around that. Then Barcelona won the treble. Now something similar can happen.
“I understand that stories have to be sold, but we are talking about a player who can make you eat your words in a second. With Messi you always have to be careful, just in case. There’s plenty more to come.”
