Messi Opens Up About Transition After Barcelona Departure

Inter Miami superstar Lionel Messi has revealed the challenges he faced in rebuilding his life following his departure from Barcelona in 2021.

Having been with Barcelona since the age of 13, Messi’s departure from the LaLiga giants marked a significant transition in his career. The 36-year-old’s departure came after his contract with Barcelona expired, leading him to join Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).

Despite his illustrious career, Messi initially struggled to settle into life in the French capital following his move to PSG. However, the Argentine football icon persevered through the challenges and eventually found his footing.

During a podcast, he said, “The change was difficult when I went to PSG, because I was doing very well in Barcelona and I planned to stay there.

“I was not prepared to leave, everything happened very quickly, I had to rebuild my life from one day to the next. I got to know another league, another club, a new locker room.

“It was a change that we were not looking for and that is why it was difficult at first.”
