Anelka questions Messi value to PSG after Man City defeat

Former PSG striker Nicolas Anelka has questioned Lionel Messi's value to the team after last night's defeat at Manchester City.

PSG's hopes of qualifying from their Champions League group suffered blow with defeat at City.

Anelka told RMC: "With Messi, PSG cannot be a counter team.

"You cannot base the whole team on Kylian Mbappe."

The Frenchman also recently cast doubt over whether Messi has still got it in him to be 'extraordinary'.

He said: "Today we demand from Neymar, but we can do the same with Messi.

"Since the beginning of the season it is not extraordinary either.

"There is a player who has six Ballons d'Or and finally is not so extraordinary."
