Lionel Messi admitted he was relieved to finally find the net for Paris Saint-Germain after opening his account in their Champions League win over Man City.
PSG earned their first win in Group A which wrapped up the three points at the Parc des Princes.
Lionel Messi’s superb goal made it 2-0, and it was his first since he joined PSG from Barcelona.
He admitted he had been “desperate” to get on the scoresheet, having gone without a goal in his first three appearances for PSG – a drought by his high standards.
“I was indeed getting desperate to score my first goal,” he said.
“I had not played much recently, and I had only played once here at home, but I am settling into the team little by little.”
“The more us forwards play together, the better our relationship will be. We all need to grow together and improve and keep giving our best.” Messi explained.
