The Arsenal legend explained Messi needs to be played in the middle where he can set the tempo of the game and he believes the PSG team is still set up for Mbappe to shine .
Henry told RMC Sport ;
“He [Messi] is isolated, he is on the ball less. I wouldn’t say he’s sad, but he’s isolated. I prefer him through the middle. I’m having trouble with Leo out on the right. In the middle, he can set the tempo. Something needs to be found in order to get Mbappe, Neymar and Messi to play together. I don’t think he can make the difference on the right, but then I don’t have the exact details from the tactical standpoint, Obviously, when you stay high up and you get out of the way, you won’t have an impact. Then you have fewer balls going towards him. Messi doesn’t speak a lot, he speaks with the ball,” Henry said. “For now, it’s Kylian’s team. Kylian is the one who’s making it shine most of all. The ball goes more towards him. At any single moment, there can only be one conductor, otherwise you can’t play at the same tempo. And in this team, there are too many conductors.”
