Ever since Lionel Messi left Catalan giants Barcelona,they have been performing poorly game in game out.Despite the fact that they have only won two games out of the possible five this season,they can still redeem themselves with the return of these world class players.Number one is their 19 year old teenage sensation Ansu Fati who has been out for a year with an injury.He has been considered Messi's successor for long and this is the time to prove everyone right.Second is France forward Ousmane Dembele who got injured during the European championship tournament in June.His speed and power will be key in bringing goals to Barca again.Last but not least is new signing Sergio Aguero who has not yet played any game for them.The fact that he is one of the best strikers in the world today is proof he will be of great help in salvaging Barcelona from its woes.
While back at Catalan giants Barcelona,Argentina's Lionel Messi was unstoppable scoring goals and providing assists week in week out.We all expected that he would extend this form to his new club Paris Saint Germain and finally help them win the champions league.However two months down the line,this has not been the case as he is struggling.Messi has not scored a single goal or provided a single assist in the five games he has played in the ligue one.This is his worst start to a season in over 16 years ever since he made his debut at Barcelona.Messi now holds the record for most shots in the French league that is 15 without a goal.Not only is he struggling on the pitch but also his physical fitness has deteriorated.Messi has been picking up injuries almost every week something that was not the case back at Barcelona.It has again been announced by the team's medics that he will not play today against RB Leipzig due to another injury.With all this struggles both on and off the pitch,it is safe to say Messi should have just stayed at Barcelona.
