Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes Lionel Messi is having a hard time keeping up with Cristiano Ronaldo.
It has been a mixed start to life in Paris for Messi, who has struggled with fitness and form issues since moving in. PSG in the summer.
Messi has scored four goals and assisted twice in 10 appearances in all competitions, and he did not stand out in PSG’s Champions League defeat to City of Manchester on Wednesday night.
This result means that, although PSG have reached the next round, they will be second in the group.
After the defeat to Man City, PSG was criticized, which is no surprise given the ‘dream team’ they have assembled for this season.
“I said the same thing about Ronaldo but at least Ronaldo is scoring,” Carragher said CBS Sports.
“Ronaldo is a passenger without the ball, his goals are making up for that in the minute.”
Ronaldo has struggled with himself since moving to Manchester United, with plenty of poor performances.
But as Carragher says, he is still scoring decisive goals, scoring 10 goals and assisting twice in 15 appearances in all competitions.
