Former Nigerian international, Austin Jay-Jay Okocha, has reacted to the reports of Leo Messi receiving the sum of £1 million weekly as wage at PSG.

Messi, who finally left Barcelona as a free agent will be earning the said sum weekly after tax at the Paris club.

Speaking in an interview with Guardian over his move to the French club, where he once plied his trade,  Okocha said his time as a footballer came too early.

“I came too early and Messi came at the right time.

“If I was paid such amount of money in my playing days, maybe I would have stayed back in France forever. I wouldn’t have thought of coming to Nigeria,” he added.

Messi, who was emotional at the Press Conference of Barcelona, said he is excited to join the Ligue 1 Giants and aims to win the Champions League for them.

PSG will also have to prove their mettle in the domestic league after losing their Ligue 1 title to Lille the last term.
