Former Sporting Kansas City player, Jimmy Conrad has claimed that Inter Miami captain, Lionel Messi was ‘miserable’ at Paris Saint-Germain despite playing alongside Neymar and Kylian Mbappe during his time at the French Ligue 1 champions.
Messi left PSG to join Inter Miami as a free agent earlier this summer after his contract with the Parisians expired.
The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner has made a stunning start to his career at Inter Miami and has helped them win the Leagues Cup.
The Argentina captain has scored eleven goals in his nine matches for the MLS side so far.
Speaking on the ‘In Soccer We Trust; podcast, Conrad said, “When I watch him [Messi] play now, he looks like he’s having a lot of fun and he’s got a smile on his face. I can’t tell you how important that is for a player, especially at this point in his career, when he’s gone through so much, especially contrasting what happened in Paris with PSG where he looked like he was miserable.
“Yeah he was playing with Mbappe and Neymar and surrounded by some of the best players in the world but that doesn’t necessarily guarantee happiness, especially if he’s going home and his family is miserable.
“[Now] they all just look like they are having the best time and that is awesome. It has already shown on the field.”
