Voland: The arrival of Messi and Boateng is a real addition to the French championship

Paris: Monaco forward Kevin Voland believes the arrival of Argentina’s Lionel Messi and Germany’s Jerome Boateng is a real addition to the French football league. Legendary Messi joined Paris Saint-Germain after his contract with Barcelona expired, while Bayern Munich defender Boateng, who won the World Cup in Brazil 2014, he moved to Olympique Lyonnais. “Jerome Boateng is good business for Lyon, he can help them, it’s great for the league to have players like Lionel Messi,” Foland told Bild TV on Sunday. The French league is traditionally considered the weakest of the five major European leagues. Voland, former Bayer Leverkusen striker, scored 16 goals and eight assists in 35 games last season in the French league with Munich, coached by Niko Kovac, former coach of Bayern Munich and the Croatian national team. Voland joined the German national team during the lackluster European Championship run, but did not join the team during qualifying for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, under the new coach Hansi Flick. “Of course you would like to be there, but the team’s blood has renewed a little and you have to accept it,” said Voland, 29. “The coach called me first and explained the situation to me.” (Dpa)
