Lionel Messi and Neymar got booed by PSG fans during French Ligue 1 game against Bordeaux


The supporters of Paris Saint Germain showed Lionel Messi and Neymar that they are not happy for their failure to help the club go beyond the UEFA Champions League round of 16. Hence, the club’s fans decided to boo the two superstars during the club’s first league game after their exit from the Champions League.

Recall that on March 9, 2022, PSG visited Madrid for the UEFA Champions League round of 16-second leg game and return to Paris in tears.

The painful part for PSG was that they went into the second leg with a 1-0 win from the first leg. Fortunately for them, they started the second leg with an early goal which they could not capitalize on.

Hence, in less than 20 minutes in the second half Real Madrid scored three goals via the boots of Karim Benzema to knock out PSG from the tournament.

In the two legs, it was only Kylian Mbappe that could score for PSG. The 23-year-old French striker scored a goal in the first leg and also scored a goal in the second leg.

As for Lionel Messi and Neymar, they could not perform any magic to help the club to earn the desired win. Unfortunately for Messi and PSG, the 34-year-old Argentine football icon failed to score a spot-kick in the first leg which could have been an added advantage for PSG.

While in the second leg, Lionel Messi and Neymar failed to take their chances. Messi had an opportunity to score against Madrid in the second leg via a close-range free-kick but was not able to direct the ball to the net.

Hence, Real Madrid knocked out PSG 3-2 on aggregate to end the dream of the French club and its supporters of winning a UEFA Champions League title for the first time in the history of the club.

As a form of punishment for failing to help the team to progress in the campaign, PSG fans decided to subject Lionel Messi and Neymar to unprecedented criticism when they stepped out to play against Bordeaux earlier today.

Even though Messi and Neymar were booed during the game by their supporters, the two players maintained their professionalism and played their part in beating Bordeaux at Parc Des Princes.

Neymar scored one of the three goals which helped PSG to beat their visitors 3-0 at home. The win has increased PSG’s points to 65 points in 28 games, 15 points above second-placed OGC Nice.

Why are PSG’s fans expecting so much from Lionel Messi and Neymar

Lionel Messi and Neymar are the highest-paid footballers at PSG and two among the highest-paid in the world. The French club pays them so well so that they can help the club to win titles especially the UEFA Champions League.

Reports claimed that Neymar alone earns a whooping 36 Million Euros per year at PSG but spends most parts of the season facing fitness issues.

As for Messi, the record seven times Ballon d’Or winner will reportedly make $110 million within three seasons at PSG, but the club’s fans are yet to see much of the greatness they thought they would get from him.

Hence, since Lionel Messi and Neymar will be praised if PSG achieves outstanding results, the club’s fans will always single them out for criticism if the club is not performing as much as expected.
