He said:

“For many years I watched Messi scoring goals, always with the opposite team.

“The first (goal) for our side, for my side, well I had to celebrate it, I am sorry!”

PSG moved to the top of the group with the win. Idrissa Gueye opened the scoring early in the first half, before Messi produced a moment of magic in the second half.

The 34-year-old played a neat one-two with Kylian Mbappe on the edge of the box before curling a first time shot past Ederson.

Messi’s goal sparked wild scenes of celebration on the home bench, which even the usually calm and composed Pochettino got involved in.
