PSG Teammate 'Surprised' By Messi's Behaviour

One Paris Saint-Germain has revealed he has been surprised by Lionel Messi's behaviour since making the move from FC Barcelona.

Messi has only played three games for the Ligue 1 leaders so far but is yet to find the back of the net or grab an assist during that period.

Fellow new signing Achraf Hakimi has certainly impressed, having already bagged three goals in Ligue 1 which included the winner against Metz this week.

The Moroccan is delighted to have Messi in the squad and admits he's surprised by the superstar's behaviour.

"For Messi to leave Barça, like everyone else, I didn't expect it. And when I heard you were coming here, what can I say? A dream for me! I played with many great players and the only one I missed was Messi! I am proud to evolve with such a good footballer," Hakimi told L'Equipe.

"To progress, I will pay attention to how he trains, how he plays. It will grow the team and each of the players that make it up. We speak the same language, in addition, little by little we are getting to know each other."

"Building a technical relationship with him is easy! I give him the ball, I run and he will put it where it belongs! (Laughs) I was surprised by the way he behaved, he is simple, quiet."

Here are PSG's highest earners this season:
