Footballers celebrate Messi after he scores maiden PSG Goal against Man City in Champions League


Six-time Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi finally ended his Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) goal drought as he opened his account for the French giants in their 2-0 triumph against Manchester City in a UEFA Champions League clash on Tuesday night. Before his goal against City, Messi had made three appearances for PSG without any success whatsoever.

English legend Gary Linekar, former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand, and ex-Newcastle stalwart Ray Hudson have all hailed Lionel Messi's performance against Pep Guardiola's Man City, which powered the Ligue 1 table toppers to an emphatic victory over the English champions at the Parc des Princes.
Linekar was effusive in his praise of the Argentine skipper as he slammed his critics for casting doubts on his ability.
According to the former Tottenham striker, Messi has always delivered against the "Big Six" of English football before telling the world that it was the 34-year-old forward's 27th goal against a Premier League club.

On the other hand, Ferdinand described Messi's goal against Guardiola's club as "disrespecting" the English team's defence. Hudson too was in awe of Messi's strike as he dubbed it "sublime".
