'PSG Is Mbappe's Team, Not Messi's'

Former Arsenal and Barcelona star Thierry Henry has claimed that Paris Saint-Germain is Kylian Mbappe's team now after Lionel Messi's mixed start to life in France.

Messi remains without a Ligue 1 goal in four matches so far after PSG's goalless draw with Le Classique rivals Olympique Marseille on Sunday.

The Argentine has scored three goals for Les Parisiens in the UEFA Champions League, but Henry feels his former Blaugrana teammate is having trouble playing on the right.

"[Messi] is isolated, he is on the ball less. I wouldn't say he's sad, but he's isolated. I prefer him through the middle. I'm having trouble with Leo out on the right. In the middle, he can set the tempo. Something needs to be found in order to get Mbappe, Neymar and Messi to play together," Henry said on Prime Video, as per RMC Sport.

"I don't think he can make the difference on the right, but then I don't have the exact details from the tactical standpoint. Obviously when you stay high up and you get out of the way, you won't have an impact. Then you have fewer balls going towards him.

"Messi doesn't speak a lot, he speaks with the ball. For now, it's Kylian's team. Kylian is the one who's making it shine most of all. The ball goes more towards him. At any single moment, there can only be one conductor, otherwise you can't play at the same tempo. And in this team, there are too many conductors."
