Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) will be aiming for three points when they face relegation battling Ajaccio at the Parc des Princes on Saturday (May 13) in Ligue 1. Christophe Galtier’s men are on the cusp of defending their league title.
Meanwhile, Javier Mascherano has advised attacker Lionel Messi to return to Barcelona this summer. Elsewhere, Jose Mourinho has been backed to succeed in Paris.
Argentina legend Javier Mascherano wants Lionel Messi to leave PSG and return to Barcelona.
The 35-year-old becomes a free agent next month but is yet to commit his future to the Parisians. The Ligue 1 champions recently suspended the player for an unauthorised visit to Saudi Arabia, which could complicate chances of a renewal.
Speaking to TyC Sports, Mascherano slammed PSG for their treatment of Messi as he advised his compatriot to end his career at the Camp Nou:
“Everything that has happened from the World Cup to here, because I imagine it must have something to do; it’s a pity because instead of being able to enjoy a player like Leo, disowning and insulting him is not taking advantage of the time he’s at your club,” said Mascherano.
“I would like Messi to come back and finish there (at Barcelona). I don’t know if the conditions are right either, but, personally, I would really like him to be able to close his chapter in Barcelona by returning next season.”
Messi has appeared 37 times across competitions for the Parisians this season, scoring 20 goals and setting up 19.
