Lionel Messi: PSG not a 'proper football club' like Liverpool


Lionel Messi was officially confirmed as a PSG player on Tuesday

Former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan has claimed that Paris Saint-Germain are not a ‘proper football club’ like Liverpool and won't win the Champions League despite Lionel Messi joined the Parisian club.

Messi was officially confirmed as a PSG player on Tuesday, signing a two-year deal.

It came after La Liga rejected the contract proposal put forward by Barcelona, meaning he left the Nou Camp as a free agent.

Jordan told talkSPORT: "I don't think PSG, irrespective of how wonderful they are at circumnavigating financial fair play and what their football project looks like, they are not a proper football club.

"A proper football club is the Manchester United and Liverpool's of the world and Manchester City are beginning to become one. But PSG for me are a canker sore on the side of football."

On Messi joining the Ligue one bigwig, Jordan said: "Is it a bona fide, nailed on, legitimate football transaction?

"In part, it is because Lionel Messi, in our mind's eye, is still this 26-year-old star.

"But let's see. I think he will translate into French football because the French league, in comparison to the Premier League, is crap and I don't care who that offends.

"It's not in the same postal code of quality.

"So, by going to the French league, he will still probably perform, but will he win the Champions League? I bet you he won’t."
