PSG forward, Lionel Messi is now easier to defend against, Adil Rami has said. He recently revealed that the Argentine legend has clearly evolved into more of a passer.
According to him, Messi used to be very skilful back in the day but his concentration on passing nowadays has made it easier for centre backs.
He added that he doesn’t think Lionel Messi can do his slalom moves anymore because he is much older now.
His words, “Granted, I never won, but there were draws and [chuckling] I got four or five shirts from him,”
“He was too strong, back then he was always behind my back. He’d be offside and then he would move back to touch the halfway line and then go again.”
“Now he’s more of a passer, so it’s easier for defenders as we can wait.”
“I don’t think he’s able to do his slalom moves so much.”
On Mbappe, “I am a big fan of Kylian Mbappe and I deeply hope that he will have a Ballon d’Or and I am happy he stayed at PSG because Messi is going to give him so much,”
“Honestly, if Mbappe understands his role then the team will hurt others a lot.”
