Unai Emery's side were superior to Barca all over the pitch and won heavily through an Angel Di Maria double and Julian Draxler and Edinson Cavani goals.
"I'm at the biggest club in the world at 23 years old", he added.
PSG have also never kept a clean sheet against Barcelona (nine games, all competitions).
Already against Bordeaux last Friday, he scored one in the 3-0 win that kept PSG in the French title race against Monaco. Never say never, The football world might want that but I think Messi is now happy in Barcelona.
I know the story will be that Barcelona was bad, but I argue that PSG was good.
"I feel like now that he is in Paris, he's playing with more freedom, with less pressure".
What happened here was somewhat reminiscent of Barcelona's 4-0 loss to AC Milan in the 1994 final.
Serge Ibaka-Terrence Ross trade: Fantasy winners and losers
He hasn't progressed like the Raptors hoped, as Ross' scoring average failed to improve since his second season in the league. The Raptors have been struggling to find a starting power forward this season, and Ibaka is a great fit for that need.
The Paris Saint Germain fans clashed with police as they celebrated a historic victory over Barcelona on Tuesday evening. This is the beauty of knockout-round matches.
'I am part of a great project and we want to become one of the top three in Europe'. "It was hard to control Neymar, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi but we managed it in the end". "They have incredible attacking prowess and it is not insane to imagine Suarez scoring one, Neymar another and Messi adding a double".
Digne was on the losing side when Barca propelled themselves towards a fifth European Cup by sweeping aside PSG 5-1 on aggregate at the quarter-final stage two years ago. However, I repeat, it is not impossible that Barcelona's three attackers wake up and score at least one goal each.
Kostas Mitroglu broke the deadlock in the second half when Luisao flicked on a corner and he took a touch to get round the goalkeeper.
Relentless PSG continued to attack and Edinson Cavani got in on the act when he drove beyond Ter Stegen to make it four and make it an nearly impossible task for Barcelona in the return leg.
Barca faced 10 shots on target vs PSG - their joint-highest in a Champions League match since 2003-04 (also vs Bayer Leverkusen in December 2015).
Lizarazu did not hold back in dissecting Barca's demise in the French capital, labelling the effort produced by Luis Enrique's previously all-conquering team "terrible".
