According to the Argentine press, L’Equipe has “a complicated relationship” with the seven-time Ballon d’Or.
The PSG match against Angers on Wednesday will be particularly followed in Argentina. The meeting between the leader of Ligue 1 and the bottom of the championship marks indeed the great return to competition of Lionel Messi, more than three weeks after the final of the World Cup against the Blues. And the reception of the Parc des Princes for the Argentinian world champion will be particularly scrutinized.
Probably fearing whistles from tricolor supporters, still marked by the defeat of the Blues, PSG has not planned any ceremony for the native of Rosario, which did not fail to move the Argentine press. Relaying information from France, olé has also cracked a new spade destined for The team. Seen from Argentina, the sports daily indeed maintains “a complicated relationship” with Messi. Consequence of the absence of Lionel Messi among the thirty best players in the world. A reference to the absence of the Argentinian among the thirty nominees for the last Ballon d’Or, awarded by France Footballwhich belongs as The team to the Amaury group.
This tackle slipped by Olé is not the first attack against The team. Friday, the Argentine daily had not failed to relay the title of Champion of Champions awarded by The team to Lionel Messi, taking the opportunity to recall the crime of lese majesty committed by the French newspaper against the sevenfold Ballon d’Or last winter. Despite PSG’s victory, the sports daily had indeed given the score of 3 to the Argentinian after the first leg of the round of 16 against Real Madrid. An affront that is not forgotten in the land of world champions. Like his absence among the nominees for the Ballon d’Or.
