Javier Mascherano, a former Barcelona midfielder, claims that PSG will regret how they treated his countryman Lionel Messi in ten years.

Earlier this week, PSG suspended the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner for two weeks as punishment for his unapproved trip to Saudi Arabia.

Meanwhile, heated protests outside the club’s headquarters have seen fans whistle at Messi and slur him.

Mascherano, who has previously teamed up with Messi for Argentina and Barcelona, asserted that it is unfortunate that PSG do not place enough value on the seven-time Ballon d’Or holder.

Messi’s former teammate and Argentina U20 coach Javier Mascherano spoke to ‘D Sports’ about the difficulties the PSG player is facing in the French Capital.

Javier was direct in his response to the ban and the fans’ outrage, saying, “In 10 years they will regret it.”

He added: “It’s a pity for not realizing they were lucky to have him on their team. I think that 10 years ago, no Paris fan imagined that they could have the best player in history on their team. And instead of enjoying it, they spent these two years criticizing him.”

“In 10 years they will regret it. Any team in the world would give anything to have him for five minutes. Neither party deserved this ending,”

“If there is something that cannot be criticized [about Leo] it’s his professionalism: it’s hard to find someone with his professionalism even though he’s possibly the best player in history.”

“It’s impossible to criticize him. Let him go where he’s happy and with his family. If it’s here, great: seeing him every weekend would be a great goal. Otherwise we will continue watching him on TV as we have been doing for almost 20 years.”

Following the claims that Messi wants to leave the Parisian giants, Leo has been linked with a move to top class clubs that behoves him, including his childhood club, Barcelona.

There are still rumors that Messi might go back to Barcelona. According to the most recent information from RMC Sport, Messi is prepared to accept a third of his present wages as his new salary at Barca in order to reunite with the Catalans.

This has reportedly led to PSG intensifying their security in front of their training ground and the Argentine’s house.

Meanwhile, Argentine coach Antonio Mohamed slammed the Paris Saint Germain fans for their harsh treatment of Lionel Messi.

Mohamed, in an interview with a newspaper known as ‘Ole’ said: “It is a lack of respect for football that they are going to bitch. These bitter people who never won anything are not going to win even if they buy the Eiffel Tower and put it in front of the goal. It is a total lack of respect.”

“First to the person, to the family, to the children. And to film that and take it out publicly too. It’s disrespectful. Outrageous. Besides, they don’t even have the taste to btch, did you see? It looks like everything is organized and poorly organized.”

Antonio hopes that Messi’s bags ‘must already be packed’ and wants the 35-year-old Argentina superstar to join a club where he will be happy.
