First time I noticed it was the world cup. His work rate is a disgrace really. Barely moves.
He has been a passenger. Shocking.

I am talking about tonight. He has been woeful. He looks bored and is strolling around. PSG playing with 10 men.
Nah, psg as a whole have been outplayed but when he’s had the ball at his feet he’s been fine.

psg as a whole have been mediocre and fortunate it’s tied

I don't care what any of you say, I think he should've started today instead of that lazy midget with no pace they have up top.

It will be interesting to find out one day if he has some kind of deficieny in hos body, there is absolutely no other explanation for his workrate levels at this level.

Stop defending him, his attitude and workrate levels are ridiculous. "When he's had the ball" is bit rich considering he isn't even opening himself to receive the ball because he barely moves.

Nah what? Are you watching the game? He has been woeful. He has strolled around doing SFA.

PSG have been poor because of him and Neymar. It is not easy to play with 9 men.

It has been a bit like when someone decent brings their brother along to 5-a-side, and he turns out to be shite

He has been so disappointing/frustrating to watch this season.

He just strolls about constantly.

Age has hit him harder than Ronnie and at a younger age

Though I suppose based on their physique it would be expected.

I don't know if his legs are gone or whether he's just that lazy now.

I don’t think this is anything to do with his physical ability waning. Ronaldo looks like he still has that burning passion whereas Messi doesn’t look bothered.

He has gone to the wrong club in my opinion.

He has been lazy since ages but people only seeing it now because the goals and assists have dried up.

He was decent when he got the ball. His off the ball movement when PSG or man city where I'm possession was absolutely terrible

Bro I love Messi and for me be is always the GOAT, but he has not been even 20% of himself, and I am not even talking about his peak. Just his form since 2019/29 seaosn.

That was a long season though. Must've took it out of him.

No he wasn't, even his assist was a poor cross that only made it's way to Mbappe due to the deflection

Shocking performance on and off the ball

He’s saving himself for the World Cup. Pipe and slippers time at PSG.
It's a real concern. Fair enough not caring in the French League, but not showing up in a CL game against serious contenders is not a good look.

And it's not like he can turn it on like a switch for the WC. If he doesn't start moving at some stage, then he'll be really rusty by the time Qatar rolls around. Needs to actually try playing the odd match just to keep his eye in if nothing else.

When the ball makes its way to him he can still produce dynamite, but throughout the majority of the match it's like he's sloping about the hundred acre wood dreaming of honey (or if they're losing wondering why no-one's remembered his birthday).

True, been saying for years he's the laziest player in the world. However, that doesn't matter as much when your team always has the ball. I'm starting to think he's got stamina problems.
