Lionel Messi received an epic introduction to Paris Saint-Germain fans at the Parc des Princes after he walked onto the pitch to the Chicago Bulls' iconic theme song.

PSG head coach Mauricio Pochettino confirmed that the 34-year-old Argentine superstar would not make his debut against Strasbourg on Saturday.

Earlier reports suggested that Messi would be presented to the Parc des Princes faithful at half-time.

However, PSG marked their first home Ligue 1 match of the season with a presentation of their summer signings.

Achraf Hakimi, Georginio Wijnaldum, Gianluigi Donnarumma and Sergio Ramos were already on stage ahead of Messi's arrival.

Messi made his way out to the pitch as the Alan Parsons Project's 'Sirius' played in the background, with the PSG new boy receiving a spine-tingling reception from fans.

'Sirius' is still used by the Chicago Bulls as their introduction theme, but it is fondly remembered by fans during the basketball side's legendary run of six NBA championships between 1991 and 1998.

One fan tweeted: "They brought him out to the '96 Bulls intro music. [Michael] Jordan is iconic. Messi is gargantuan."

Someone else wrote: "Messi's entrance song was the Bulls intro song. I love this man so much."

A third Twitter user posted: "Classic Chicago Bulls intro music into Leo Messi's presentation to PSG's fans today. GOAT music for GOAT!"

And a fourth added: "They had Messi walkin' into PSG stadium with the Bulls intro music. S**t [is] real."

Messi flew out to Paris with his family earlier this week to complete his medical ahead of his move to PSG.

The Barcelona legend penned a two-year deal with the French side and secured a lucrative contract, earning Messi a staggering £25m per year after tax.
