Fans of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) praised left-back Nuno Mendes, saying that the young player is working well with Lionel Messi.
In Ligue 1, PSG beat Nantes 3-0 while they were on the road. Kylian Mbappe scored twice for Paris, and Mendes scored the third goal to put the cherry on top.
Messi helped Mbappe score both of his goals, giving him six assists for the season. He has now gotten two assists in two games in a row. But fans were happy to see how the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner is getting along with the 20-year-old fullback, Mendes. Last season, the Portuguese moved to Paris from Sporting CP. Even though he has always been good at what he does, he is slowly becoming one of the best players in his position. Fans said that the way he plays with the Argentine is similar to how Messi and Jordi Alba worked together when Messi was at Barcelona. A cross from Achraf Hakimi hit the post and Neymar Jr. had to come in. When the ball came back to Mendes, he didn’t miss the chance to make it 3-0 for his team. Here’s how PSG fans around the world reacted to their brilliant left-back’s performance:

Messi, who arrived at Paris Saint-Germain last season from Barcelona, posted a heartfelt message to his former colleagues upon their departure. Here’s what the legendary forward wrote in his social media post:
“Many successes in your new stage, Leandro Paredes. It was wonderful to share so many things in Paris, and I will always remember all the beautiful moments we lived together. And good luck to you too, Ander Herrera. I loved meeting you. I thank you for the way you welcomed me from the first day, and I wish you the best in your return to La Liga.” (Translated by Google)
