It’ll be strange to face Barcelona in Champions League – Lionel Messi

New PSG signing Lionel Messi has said it would be strange to face his former club, Barcelona, in the Champions League.

He said this at a press conference held to officially unveil him by the club, monitored by The PUNCH on Wednesday.

He said, “Of course, it was very complicated with leaving Barcelona without knowing where I was going to go.

“Barcelona has been my home, I have been there since I was a kid.

“They knew I was going to join a strong team that will be aiming to win the Champions League.

“I want to have important goals, I know that mine and PSG’s goals are the same and we want to be bigger and bigger.

“I don’t know if Barca and PSG will maybe face each other in the Champions League, it would be nice to maybe go back to Barcelona, and with fans in the stadium because of the pandemic.

“It would be very strange to play at home there but it could happen and we’ll see.” PUNCH
