Lionel Messi is finally back in Paris. The Argentinian superstar, who has just won the most prestigious of competitions with this 2022 World Cup won in Qatar – the only major trophy that has been missing from his list so far – after an epic final against the France team, has resumed training with his club Paris Saint-Germain.
The 35-year-old footballer, voted best player of the tournament, returned to France on January 3 with his family: his wife Antonella Roccuzzo, and their children Thiago (10 years old), Mateo (7 years old) and Ciro (4 years old). . Before that, the family had granted themselves a few well-deserved days of vacation in Argentina after all the turmoil of the past few weeks.
Lionel Messi arrived by private jet at Le Bourget airport. The Messi clan was welcomed with great fanfare with a particularly consequent device; Police, Gendarmerie and airport staff were all on hand as the plane descended to greet and ensure the safety of the world star and his loved ones. The result is impressive images, to be discovered in our slideshow.
It must be recognized that the situation is somewhat comical and particular for Lionel Messi. He has just won the World Cup against the country in which he plays in club. The Paris Saint-Germain club and airport security have therefore logically chosen not to take the slightest risk.
Also welcomed as it should be by his teammates during his big return to the Camp des loges (PSG’s training center), Lionel Messi posted a message on Instagram to the attention of his playing partners to thank them. . “A big thank you to my colleagues and to all the people of the club for the welcome they have given me. We are already back and looking forward to continuing to achieve this season’s goals, now with Paris Saint-Germain“, he wrote in the caption of some shots of him during his first training since the recovery.
