Fans of Paris Saint-Germain PSG have continued to bash and boo Lionel Messi despite serving suspension over his unauthorized trip to Saudi Arabia for personal reasons.
The fans seem to be booing the Argentine forward in a bid to force him out of the club.
Messi was again booed after his return to PSG in the game versus Ajaccio in the French Ligue 1 over the weekend.
Messi was slammed with suspension by the club’s hierarchy earlier this month after he travelled to Saudi Arabia without informing those in authority.
But after he pleaded for forgiveness his suspension was shortened and the 35-year-old returned to action against AC Ajaccio on Saturday evening.
But when his name was read out by the stadium announcer at the Parc des Princes, it was met with loud jeers and whistles from the home supporters.
In contrast, PSG’s supporters cheered loudly shortly after the announcer read out Kylian Mbappe’s name.
Whenever the 2022 World Cup winner touched the ball he was also booed by his club’s supporters, especially in the early period of the game.
Speculations are rife that the Argentine superstar will leave PSG for Al Hilal in the Saudi Arabian league in the summer for a mouth-watering deal.
