πŸ‡¦πŸ‡· Di Maria on why PSG are struggling with Messi

Paris Saint-Germain winger Angel Di Maria believes Lionel Messi’s arrival at the club has a bit of setback on the usually firing attack.

According to Di Maria, the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar had previously ripped opposition defenders apart before Messi arrived, but the frontline has now had to build time to adapt to the former Barcelona star.

"With [Messi's] arrival, it's harder to find that cohesion," the Argentine told Telefoot.

"Things are not clear yet, but they will become so. Neymar is an immense player – bit by bit he will return to a top level.

"Competition [for places at PSG] is difficult.

"When you have those three players in front of you, you have to work, and do as well as possible in order to play. And then it's the manager who decides."

Di Maria concluded his chat by saying whether the trio will eventually work out or not.

"Yes. These are three exceptional players," the former Real Madrid star replied, per Ligue 1's official website.

"There are two who continue to grow and will try to win the Ballon d'Or in the future, and the other is the greatest.”
