French football expert, Bixente Lizarazu felt embarrassed by the way Messi was treated in Paris, most recently in the PSG 5-0 Ajaccio match, round 35 of Ligue 1.
Messi returned to the main team PSG against Ajaccio when his suspension was cut in half, from 2 weeks to 1 week for the trip to Saudi Arabia after he publicly apologized.
However, the Parc des Princes did not welcome Messi back. They reacted even harder than before, booing and whistling continuously from the moment his name was called in the starting lineup.
The overzealous fans repeated that every time Messi touched the ball. This is one of many times the Parisians rejected the Argentine superstar, who is considered the greatest in football history.
Many people feel unfair to Messi and think that it is a ‘stain’ that PSG fans will never be able to wash away.
Witnessing that scene, French football expert Bixente Lizarazu sharply criticized the Paris team’s fans:
“I am ashamed of the way we treat Messi. He hasn’t had a bad season. Messi has scored 15 goals and 15 assists in Ligue 1 this season.
It is true that since the 2022 World Cup, performance has decreased. But we are talking about the best, or at least one of the best players in the history of football.
We cannot treat Messi like a normal player. We can’t be treated like that….
PSG ‘s problem was not with the players. The team’s failure to meet expectations is not Messi’s fault. I think he deserves more respect.”
Messi is said to have informed PSG of his departure, since last month and the club is also not interested in keeping him when it is necessary to reduce the salary bill.
The recent treatment of the Parisians makes the scorer who is about to celebrate his 36th birthday, there is nothing to worry about. They have insulting words, call him a mercenary,…
It is reported that Messi has promised to join Al Hital (in case a suitable offer from Europe is not received), with a super contract of nothing but a lot of money. This is the rival club of Al Nassr, Ronaldo’s club is playing in Saudi Arabia.
