PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino has revealed the truth behind his unexpected subbing of Lionel Messi late in the team’s win over Lyon.

The Sunday Ligue 1 match between Paris Saint-Germain and Lyon marked Lionel Messi’s debut at the Parc des Princes stadium, home of PSG.

The Argentine has yet to net his first goal for PSG but came close with his fantastic free-kick that only hit the crossbar.

Ultimately, Messi struggled in the first half but his former Barcelona co-star Neymar managed to shift the momentum on PSG with his equalizing penalty goal on the 66th minute.
