Lionel Messi Is Getting Booed By Paris Saint-Germain Fans When He Touches The Ball, It Wasn't Meant To End This Way
| Last updated
Messi joined PSG last summer after leaving Barcelona and he's failed to hit the world class level we know he's capable of.
The seven-time Ballon d'Or winner started in Wednesday's 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid, which saw PSG eliminated from the Champions League.
PSG fans are furious with a few players, the main two being Messi and Neymar. Both men's names were booed as they walked out at the Parc des Princes.

Kylian Mbappe, who scored on Wednesday, was the only man in the front three who received cheers.
Georginio Wijnaldum was also heavily jeered, despite not playing a part in midweek.
Fans have reacted to the shocking footage and they think it's a shame the twilight of Messi's career is panning out this way.
One commented: "This is very sad. How can they disrespect Messi in this way?"
Another put: "Imagine whistling the greatest player ever because your club doesn't know how to play him."
A third said: "Dear PSG fans (if you do exist), Lionel Messi’s left foot is bigger than the existence of your club. Know your place and humble yourselves"
While someone tweeted: "Get him out of there, they don't deserve him."

Mbappe gave PSG the lead inside 24 minutes and ironically, it was Wijnaldum who registered a lovely assist.
It was PSG's only shot on target in the first half and Bordeaux, who are bottom of Ligue 1 with four wins all season, are doing an admirable job of stifling attacks.
Midweek loss to Real has seen pressure ramp up on PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino as well as sporting director Leonardo and president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.
PSG are currently 12 points clear at the top but they've once again failed to win Europe's most prestigious club competition, even with their star-studded front three of Messi, Neymar and Mbappe.
Mbappe is expected to leave in the summer as a free agent, while sensational reports earlier this week claimed Neymar could be placed on the transfer list.
