The Argentine is not an assured starter due to a wealth of talented options available for Thomas Tuchel – but he holds no grudges.

Paris Saint-Germain are one of the most adept attacking teams in all of Europe, and this comes with the luxury of having several world-class attackers in the squad.

Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Angel Di Maria, and Mauro Icardi are more than capable of terrorizing defenses while Moise Kean and Jese Rodriguez are also deadly on their day.

When fit, Neymar, Mbappe, and Di Maria are pretty much the guaranteed names in the PSG line-ups.

It has been suggested that limited game time has left Icardi, who was expected to become the focal point of the team’s attack following his arrival from Inter Milan, with a bad taste.

However, Icardi’s recent comments indicate that is not the case as he has paid tribute to his competitors.

“For me, playing with attackers of this level is an honor,” the Argentine marksman told in an interview with Telefoot.

“Kylian and Neymar are among the three or four best players in the world – they show it in every game.

“I’ve been in football for many years now. But this locker room, this group that was formed last season, I had not seen it anywhere else.”
