Lionel Messi has made his long awaited Paris Saint-Germain debut as the Parisians cruised to a 2-0 Ligue 1 win at Stade Reims.
However, the former Tottenham boss hinted the 34-year-old would see some action tonight and he kept to his word in Northern France.
Messi was introduced for his first ever senior club appearance not in Barcelona colours as a 66 minute replacement for former La Blaugrana teammate Neymar.
Pochettino’s side were already in the ascendency prior to Messi arrival on the pitch at the Stade Auguste Delaune with a goal in either half from Kylian Mbappe putting them in cruise control on the night.
Messi looked to play in a central role in his first cameo appearance in French football with Mbappe switching out wide following Neymar’s late exit.
