Former Manchester United striker, Dimitar Berbatov says he is still crying over Lionel Messi’s exit from Spanish giants, Barcelona.
Lionel Messi is set to join Paris Saint-Germain and is currently in France where he will undergo his medicals and sign a 2-year contract.
Barcelona announced on Thursday that a 34-year-old Argentine superstar will no longer be in their set-up following some financial rules by LaLiga.
Speaking to Betfair, as per talkSPORT, Berbatov said,
“I’m still crying about Lionel Messi.
“Football with never be the same again for Barcelona and it is the end of an era. I didn’t expect it to happen and it was tough to watch his press conference, leaving home is never easy and I can imagine a lot of the fans are very unhappy.
“Football can be cruel. On the other hand, it is a new chapter and a new adventure for Messi, he can go on and challenge himself outside his comfort zone. He doesn’t have anything to prove to anybody, only to himself.
“There are some great advantages for him at PSG, they have some incredible players and his countryman Mauricio Pochettino is in charge.
“I can’t wait to see Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar play together. On paper, it is a phenomenal attack. Sometimes in football things don’t always work out on the pitch as expected but these three great players will look forward to playing with each other.
“With the addition of Messi, PSG are definitely going to be a force in the Champions League this season and they will be feared by teams, no one will want them in their group and no one will want to face them in the knockouts.
“When I was at United, people used to look at us in the tunnel and you could tell from their faces that they were already defeated. Now PSG, with Messi, Neymar, Mbappe, Sergio Ramos and all their other great players, will experience a similar thing.”
