Lionel Messi is enjoying himself at PSG and he says he has adapted there well, in an interview with France Football.

“PSG gave me the chance to come and we were motivated. We really were excited to play for a fantastic team like PSG, where you can win many titles, something I wanted in the coming years. There were other offers but this project seduced me. It was all fast. It’s a new experience in my life, a big change we’re trying to make bit by bit, since I arrived they showed me they loved me. They looked after me and I thank them. I’m very happy to be here.”

A lot in the squad speak Spanish, including Neymar, Paredes, Di Maria and the coach Mauricio Pochettino. “We had to start from zero so it wasn’t easy but knowing a part of the dressing room made things simpler. Neymar, Paredes, Di Maria, they all helped me. Pochettino too, we know each other well and we want to win titles here, it’s a common objective.”

Messi was part of a great attack force at Barca, the MSN - with Suarez and Neymar. Now it’s the MMN with Mbappe instead of the Uruguayan. 

“The main difference is age. We were younger at Barca. Now the young one is Mbappe. Him and Suarez are very different. Suarez is a pure nine, in the final metres and scoring a lot of goals. Kylian likes having the ball ore. He’s very fast and if you give him space he will kill you. He and Luis are spectacular players.”
