LIGA - Messi on difference between MSN and MNM
Later that summer, Messi departed Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain in a free transfer that rocked European football's foundations. In three appearances in Ligue Un, he has yet to score, although he did score his first goal for his new club against Manchester City in dramatic manner in the Champions League.
Many are interested to see how he performs in the MNM frontline of Messi, Neymar, and Kylian Mbappe, with similarities to the MSN frontline of Messi, Neymar, and Luis Suarez, which dominated Europe at Barcelona.
“Age is the difference! We were young when we started playing with Ney,” Messi replied when asked by France Football in comments carried by Diario AS. “Today the young man is Kylian. Luis and Kylian are very different players. Luis is a pure nine, an efficient forward in the area who’s used to scoring many goals. Kylian likes to touch the ball more. He’s a very powerful and fast player who kills you if you give him space, and also scores a lot. They’re two spectacular players, but with very different qualities.”
