PSG legend Pauleta has warned Kylian Mbappe that he must accept it if he scores less goals since Messi arrived at PSG.
Although they have World Cup winner and Brazilian superstar Neymar in their ranks, the Ligue 1 giants brought in another world-class striker over the summer.
Six-time Golden Ball winner Messi is looking to further boost his reputation after leaving Barcelona for PSG.
The 34-year-old striker is expected to prove his qualities in the Spanish capital just as he did at the Camp Nou for almost two decades.
Pauleta, who scored 109 goals for PSG during his career, has said that Mbappe should grow a lot with Messi next to him.
“Mbappe has to adapt. He has to grow a lot with Lionel Messi at Paris Saint-Germain. If he has the wisdom to move well, taking advantage of the space created by Messi and Neymar, he will often find himself in good situations thanks to their good qualities in passing the ball and will have many scoring opportunities. “, Said Pauleta.
“The fact that he can play sideways or in the middle will be an asset. But there is always the risk that one of them will score fewer goals. This applies to Mbappe, he must accept this “, he added.
