Real Madrid midfielder, Luka Modric, has admitted that it was rare for him to see former Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, in a Paris Saint-Germain shirt.
Messi joined PSG on a two-year contract last summer after his boyhood club Barcelona was unable to renew his contract due to LaLiga regulations.
The Argentine helped PSG win the Ligue 1 title, scoring 11 goals and registering 15 assists across competitions for the club in his debut season.
However, the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner failed to guide PSG to UEFA Champions League glory as they were eliminated by Real Madrid, who eventually won the tournament.
Speaking to Sportske, Modric, who played against Messi in many Clasicos, said:
“It was rare to see (Lionel) Messi, after so many Clasicos, in another shirt. With Neymar and (Kylian) Mbappe, they are a collection of talent.
“But we are Real Madrid, and when we find our rhythm, with the fantastic support of the fans, we simply crush them. It was a spectacular night, one of the most impressive for me, and I have experienced many at Real Madrid.”
