Many big clubs have had great attacking threes in the history of football, and the new trilling of Paris Saint-Germain - Messi, Neymar, Mbappé - is definitely entering the competition of the best.
The owners of Paris Saint-Germain were obviously seriously angry because the popular Saints first lost the Champions League final to Bayern in 2020, and then in 2021, they lost the title in France in the race with Lille. As a "response" this summer, several big stars arrived at Prince's Park. Starting with Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, through the legendary Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos, Inter defender Hakimi, Liverpool midfielder Gini Wijnaldum, to finally the greatest of all - Barcelona legend Leo Messi.
What is certain is that PSG will have one of the deadliest attacks of all time. Messi, Neymar, and Mbappé, who, despite speculations, will apparently stay in Paris, individually and as a trilling, are making a hell of an attack.
Messi and Neymar once did a great trilling together with Luis Suárez in Barcelona. During the most successful season of the 2014/15 club, Messi, Neymar and Suarez scored a total of 131 goals. In 2015, Barcelona won the Primera, Copa del Rey, the Champions League, the European Super Cup and the Club World Cup.
Will it be even more dangerous and deadly with Mbappé?
Until a few years ago, Real Madrid dominated Europe with the BBC trilling (Bale, Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo). Zinedine Zidane won the Champions League, with the three of them together for three years in a row. At that time, Sergio Ramos was also in the Real team, now another great reinforcement for PSG this summer. Real Madrid also remembers the golden sixties when they won the European title for five years in a row. At that time, the trilling of the attackers consisted of Alfredo Di Stefano, Ferenc Puskas and Paco Hento. Liverpool and Klopp swear in a trio - Sadio Mane, Roberto Firminho and Mo Salah. Together, they won the Champions League and returned the English title to Anfield after exactly three decades - for the first time since 1990. Since Salah arrived in Liverpool in 2017, the three of them have scored 273 goals together!
Manchester United had some great trillings. History was once written by the legendary George Best, Dennis Lowe and Bobby Charlton, and the younger generations remember Ronaldo, Rooney, Tevez. They played for Alex Ferguson's team from 2007 to 2009 and made this period one of the most successful in the history of the club. Manchester easily defeated their opponents by winning three consecutive Premier League titles and the Champions League trophy. The killer trio together scored 140 goals. During three seasons, United managed to win the World Club Championship, the League Cup and two Community Shields. Ronaldo, Rooney and Tevez made one of the best attacks in the history of world football.
Messi, Mbappé, and Neymar are now on the move. Time will tell if he will really be the best. One thing is certain that the French league doesn’t remember such a strong trio in its history and most likely, this trio will break records easily and set new boundaries in the French league and in football in general.
