Argentina icon, Lionel Messi has opened up for the first time on his decision to join Paris Saint-Germain in the summer after spending his entire professional career with Barcelona, revealing that, "he didn't make a mistake joining the French giants".

PSG completed arguably the biggest signing in club football history when they managed to land the record six-time Ballon d'Or award winner in the summer, with the 36-year-old agreeing to a two-year deal with an option of extending it by another year.

In an exclusive interview with France Football magazine, Messi spoke for the first time to a media outlet since joining PSG and he is convinced that he has taken the right decision.

"I didn't make a mistake in going to PSG," he said in the interview which will come out in full on Saturday, October 9.

Messi for his part has not had the best of starts to life in Paris, scoring just one goal in five appearances so far and is yet to open his account for the French giants in Ligue 1. The 36-year-old however did score his debut goal with a screamer against Manchester City to lead the club to a 2-0 win in the Champions League.

It will be interesting to see whether the superstar can pick up his form and lead PSG to their maiden Champions League honour come the end of the season.
