PSG vs. Lorient - Grades: Forwards

3 - Messi: Can PSG pay La Liga to repatriate Messi to Spain? No, really, that might be the best option for PSG going forward so they avoid having to extend him if Barcelona cannot pay for him. Maybe Messi can tour the Spanish competition playing for one different team each week? He gets to pick the one he prefers every weekend, as he is already getting to pick which games he wants to give a damn about when he plays at PSG these days. Not a big change, right?

7 - Mbappe: Scored the most stupid goal you'd ever see on a professional football pitch. Complained at the break. Did nothing else after all 21 men returned from the locker room. At least he was lucky none of Jonathan David nor Alexandre Lacazette scored in their games, so he even got to pad his top-goalscorer case.

Next. Galtier after 1-3 loss to Lorient: "Too many players are below their level". dark

7 - Ekitike: Played. Somehow, Ekitike played. That's a miracle. That's incredible, unbelievable, and a sight to behold. Did nothing, but he gets the same grade I handed to Mbappe because one goal of Mbappe isn't even half as hard for him to score as it is for Ekitike to even make it to the pitch under the coaching of Galtier. A day to remember in the Ekitike Family.
