PSG: Galtier reveals one major similarity between Messi, Neymar

Paris Saint-Germain manager, Christophe Galtier, has revealed one major similarity between forwards, Lionel Messi and Neymar.

Galtier said both Messi and Neymar have a real technical link.

He said this after both players scored in PSG’s 4-0 Trophee des Champions win over Nantes on Sunday at the Bloomfield Stadium in Tel Aviv, Israel.

Messi opened the scoring in the 22nd minute during the encounter, while Neymar netted a brace – a free-kick and a penalty on either side of the half.

Speaking to reporters after the game, Galtier heaped praise on Messi and Neymar for their world-class performances.

Galtier said: “Leo [Messi] and Neymar, these are players who have known each other for a fair few seasons, they have played together elsewhere, and have rediscovered each other last year – they have a real technical link.

“In all modesty, I am not surprised by what the attackers have done with the support from the wings and the midfield.”
