Paris Saint-Germain commemorated Lionel Messi’s birthday by creating a special video montage showcasing the Argentine superstar’s incredible moments during his tenure with the club.
Messi officially joined PSG in the summer of 2021, signing a two-year contract. While his time with the Parisians had its ups and downs, the most notable being PSG’s disappointing performance in the UEFA Champions League, it concluded on a sour note.
Despite facing constant criticism from the club’s fanbase, Messi decided to make a move across the Atlantic and signed with Inter Miami, an MLS side, instead of extending his contract with PSG.
Nevertheless, on his 36th birthday, Messi’s former club expressed their appreciation for him. PSG took to Twitter and shared a 58-second video titled “Happy birthday, Leo,” which encapsulated some of Messi’s mesmerizing moments during his association with the club, All Football reports.
