No coach will play three of you together – Riolo slams Messi, Neymar, Mbappe
A French football journalist, Daniel Riolo, has launched an attack on Paris Saint-Germain forwards Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Kylian Mbappe following the Parisians’ 1-1 Ligue 1 draw against Stade Reims.
PSG were held to a 1-1 draw against Stade Reims at the Parc des Princes on Sunday.
They failed to claim the win despite having Messi, Neymar, and Mbappe in their attacking frontline.
Neymar gave PSG the lead in the 51st minute of the match, but Marco Verratti’s dismissal made life difficult for the hosts.
While a 10-man PSG managed to hold on to their one-goal lead for most of the second half, they eventually conceded a late equalizer through Arsenal loanee Folarin Balogun.
The result means PSG are now three points ahead of second-place Lens on the Ligue 1 table after 20 matches.
Speaking after the game, Riolo cited PSG’s attack as a problem area for Christophe Galtier’s side, insisting that it is impossible to incorporate Messi, Neymar, and Mbappe in the same line-up.
He said on RMC Sport: “No coach in the world can play the front three together (Messi, Neymar, and Mbappe); it’s impossible.”
