For his very last match with PSG, Saturday with the Clermont hall at the Parc des Princes, Lionel Messi was whistled when his name was announced before the game.
Price for target since Champions League Round of 16 elimination against Real Madrid in March 2022, Lionel Messi was shouted down one last time by the Parisian public. Whistles went down from the stands at the announcement of the number 30 of the Rouge et Bleu, against the last meeting of the season against Clermont, Friday evening at the Parc des Princes.
The share of the Ballon d’Or record holder was however formalized two hours before the start of the game, but the Parisian ultras were therefore merciless for « La Pulga », which offered two contrasting seasons to PSG, with many decisive actions, but a flagrant and even disabling lack of involvement during the big moments. The last whistles of the Park will not fail to make react throughout the world.
Thierry Henry, on the set of Prime Video, says about his former teammate at Barça: “ Unfortunately, Leo didn’t catch the hearts of the Paris fans. He is the first player to finish with 16/16 (goals/assists, editor’s note) and who is booed before his last game. I find it a pity. For me he is the best player of all time « .
