Milan kriniar will join Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent this summer, bringing with him a new center-back. However, the Slovakian defender has been chastised for leaving Serie A to join PSG.
Former Inter Milan player Marco Materazzi used Lionel Messi as an example of how fans in Paris will turn on him and not appreciate him as much as they do in Milan.
“I would have stayed at Inter in his place,” Materazzi said (h/t RMC Sport). “I told him publicly, ‘Remember, Inter fans loved you; I don’t know if you’ll be loved like that in Paris, but I hope you are.’ But consider what is happening with Messi, one of the best players in the world.
Kriniar will be expected to be the backbone of PSG’s defense, which has been without a leader since Thiago Silva’s departure in 2020. Despite the fact that Marquinhos is the team captain, the 28-year-old has the personality to be that vocal commander.
Messi is cited by Materazzi as an example of PSG fans being ungrateful or underappreciating a player. Nonetheless, the fan base has applauded players such as Silva and Edison Cavani, who left everything on the field and there was no doubt about their effort.
Some PSG fans are wondering why they aren’t seeing the Messi who plays for Argentina’s national team. Nonetheless, if Kriniar plays with effort and fills the need at center-back, he will be praised.
