Messi Reacts to Ending Ligue 1 Goal Drought

Paris Saint-Germain star Lionel Messi has reacted to ending his Ligue 1 goal drought for the French giants.

Read: 'Messi Did Not Cry Because He Had To Leave Barcelona' 

The Argentine broke his duck in the 87th minute with one of his trademark curling strikes in PSG's 3-1 win over Nantes on Saturday.

Messi had already scored three goals for PSG in the UEFA Champions League, but initially found it tough to replicate that form in the French top flight.

"I'm happy. We had a lot of chances, but their goalkeeper made some good saves. But we weren't afraid and we ended up winning," Messi said to Amazon Prime.

Here are PSG's highest earners this season: 

"I am happy to score this first goal, at the Parc des Princes, in front of the fans.

"Even though I had already scored in the Champions League, I expected to score in the league."

Messi and PSG will now turn their attention to Wednesday's Champions League group stage tie against Manchester City as they look to secure a spot in the round of 16.

The six-time Ballon d'Or winner got his first-ever goal for the French club against City when they clashed in the reverse fixture earlier this season.
