Lionel Messi has been part of Paris Saint Germain for two incredible seasons. The 35-year-old helped the club win two successive Ligue 1 titles as well as the prestigious French Super Cup. The Argentine was the one who scored the title-winning goal for PSG against Strasbourg.
Yet, he is neither loved nor appreciated at the Parc des Princes. Lionel Messi was constantly booed by PSG fans throughout his two years playing for them. He and his teammate Neymar were even abused on their final day during PSG Ligue 1 winning celebration.
Both players left the pitch early because of that.
Paris Saint Germain manager Christophe Galtier who is a serious admirer of the World Cup winner had to jump in and defend Lionel Messi.
“Concerning Leo, I find that the whistles were very harsh. Like the season, there have been good periods, and less good periods. Maybe in a few weeks, I will find the origin of Leo’s treatment, because he has always been well-behaved,”
Christophe Galtier praised the Argentine for his ‘impressive statistics’ in France,
“He is the greatest player in the history of football. He has impressive statistics, in a season where he played a lot. Leo had a great season. I dare to hope that people will analyze it coldly, with a little more lucidity.”
Another individual who stand up to defend Lionel Messi was his godson Benjamin Aguero. Benjamin who is also the son of Argentine legend Sergio Aguero replied to PSG’s post with the following:
“He was too big for you.”
His reply has gone viral since and football fans have hilariously reacted to them.
