Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi believes that Inter are among the favourites for the Champions League this season, because they are strong as a team.

Speaking to French magazine France Football, as reported by FCInterNews, the Argentine gave the view that Inter are among the teams who have shown the collective quality to win the Champions League even if his own team have greater individual quality.

Messi was among an influx of players at the Parc des Princes this summer, including Inter wing-back Achraf Hakimi and goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma formerly of city rivals AC Milan.

Many have placed the expectation of winning Europe’s top competition on the Parisians given the reputation of the players that they have, but Messi believes that there are other teams who currently look better-placed as they play better as a unit, with Inter being one of the teams he listed.

“It is true that the spotlight is on PSG,” he said, “but there are other very strong teams, such as Chelsea, the two Manchester clubs, Real Madrid always having their say, Inter, Bayern Munich. I don’t know if I forget a few.”

He continued, “They are all great teams. We have great individuals, but we still have to know each other well to form a team. Because to win important titles you have to play as a team, this is what makes me say that we are still a step behind all these clubs, which have more experience than us as a collective.”
