Speaking to MARCA, Netherlands manager Ronaldo Koeman heaped huge praise on PSG attacker Lionel Messi and backed him to rejoin Barcelona this summer. He elaborated:
“He is the best player in the world, anyone who can have him will be strong. I experienced his departure first hand, and it was a very bad day. When I see Leo in a different shirt, I still find it strange. I don’t know what the exact situation is or what Leo is currently thinking. I’m in favour of him being a Barcelona player soon.”
Messi played in 47 matches under Koeman, scoring 38 and assisting 14 goals.
Apart from the Blaugrana, Major League Soccer outfit Inter Miami and Saudi Pro League side Al Hilal are also interested in signing the star.
Operating in a creative role in Christophe Galtier’s 3-4-2-1 setup, Messi has been in stellar form in the ongoing 2022-23 season. So far, he has scored 19 goals and contributed 18 assists in 34 overall games so far.
