PARIS -Defender Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), Achraf Hakimi, now a teammate of the world superstar footballer, Lionel Messi. After a few months in this role, Hakimi also revealed the true nature of Lionel Messi which surprised him.
As is known, Messi decided to join PSG in the summer of 2021. His arrival to the French giants came after Barcelona decided not to extend his contract due to the financial crisis.
The Argentine player then chose Paris as his new club which was also filled with star players, such as Hakimi. Hakimi also admitted that he was happy to be able to fulfill his dream of playing with world superstar Lionel Messi.
However, the Moroccan player was a little surprised at Messi’s genuine attitude. Because, La Pulga, Messi’s nickname, is a simple and quiet figure.
Hakimi admitted that it was quite easy to establish a relationship with Messi technically on the pitch. It’s just that, when off the field, he’s a little difficult.
“Building a technical relationship with him is easy I give him the ball and run and then Messi will put him in his place. I was surprised by the attitude that Messi showed, he was simple and quiet,” Hakimi said.
