*The tribute to Pelé in the preview of the PSG match against Angers
PSG did not plan a special reception for Lionel Messi in his first game after winning the World Cup with Argentina: the reasons for the decision
The man from Rosario will appear again with his club this Wednesday after two months after his last game and after being champion with the Argentine team in Qatar. Will he go back?
Lionel Messi, world champion with Argentina and best player of Qatar 2022, returned to the courts. He was in the commitment of Paris Saint-Germain against Angers on date 18 of the French League 1. However, what was striking was that the star from Rosario did not receive any special reception from the club after his consecration in the Middle East.
Three weeks after the historic conquest of the World Cup in the country on the Persian Gulf, the legend with a past in Barcelona was summoned to play the match at the Parque de los Príncipes stadium; and unlike what happened in other institutions in Europe, the striker did not receive any tribute from his team. Even when all the protagonists jumped onto the pitch to warm up, they all wore a T-shirt with Pelé’s face, accompanied by the phrase “Eternal”. In addition, before the match began, a minute of silence was held in commemoration of the death of the former striker for Santos and the MLS Cosmos.

The only precedent goes back to when he received a warm welcome from the PSG squad, staff and leadership when he returned to training last week.
While the French media speculated about how the reception of the Parisian fans should have been, from the entity of the French capital they decided not to put together a special tribute since, according to the newspaper Le Parisien, the entertainment they gave him last week in the Camp des Loges training center “was enough”.

This position, however, contradicts what Galtier expressed last week, when he indicated that he expected a “celebration” for the representative of the World Champion squad in Qatar 2022. However, Messi will play his first game of 2023 and start the Nineteenth year of his immense professional career, which has already exceeded one thousand commitments (1,003) and is barely seven goals away from reaching 800 goals.
The best player in the World Cup, with seven goals and three assists, returned to Paris last Tuesday and rejoined the team led by Christophe Galtier the following day. During the absence of number 30, the Parisian team played three games, two for League 1 and another for the French Cup. On December 28, while Messi was on leave in his native Rosario, the last French champion just barely beat Strasbourg 2-1 and three days later suffered the first defeat of the season after losing 3-1 on his visit to escort Lens. Last Friday, with La Flea back in the group, PSG advanced to the next round of the French Cup after beating third-division Chateauroux 3-1.
The star from Rosario had played for the last time with his team on November 13 at the Parque de los Príncipes, against Auxerre (5-0), for date 15 of the domestic championship. Before joining the Argentine national team, the winner of seven Ballon d’Ors had scored seven goals in Liga 1 and provided ten assists.
At 35, “Leo” is the team’s top assister and the third goalscorer behind Neymar (11) and the Frenchman Kylian Mbappé (13) who has not yet returned after the break granted by the coaching staff after showing up for a few days after losing the World Cup final.
