Messi returns to Argentina to do something that 2 years at PSG only once

Immediately after the loss to Rennes in Ligue 1, the Argentine superstar and his family boarded a private plane to return home. Messi received a warm welcome after a period of pressure in Paris.

Messi also posted a picture with teammates Rodrigo De Paul, Leandro Paredes, Paulo Dybala, Angel Di Maria, Lo Celso and Nicolas Otamendi.

Messi posted a photo with the stars of the Argentina team.

The World Cup champion is going through a difficult time in the final months of his contract with PSG. He was booed by his own fans before and after the match in the 28th round of Ligue 1.

After the match ended, Messi went straight into the tunnel without staying to thank the fans after the game. The fanatical group of PSG blamed Messi for the defeat in the Champions League. They consider that “El Pulga”‘s contribution is not commensurate with the salary he is receiving.

Messi temporarily avoids pressure from PSG

In the match against Rennes, Messi was the best player on the field. The former Barcelona captain dropped deep to support the midfield and created 5 chances, but none of his teammates could take advantage. In the end, PSG lost to Rennes 0-2 at Parc des Princes.

The season is not over yet but PSG have lost 7 matches in Ligue 1, while last season, they only lost 4 times.

In front of Messi is a series of international friendly matches at the end of March. The World Cup champion will face Panama and Curacao on March 24 and 28.

Roberto: ‘Messi is being treated badly at PSG’

Barca midfielder Sergi Roberto condemned the PSG fans whistling mocking Messi during the loss to Rennes

“You don’t understand that Messi is having a good season in Paris,” Roberto said on March 20. “He’s given a lot of goals and assists for PSG. Due to being knocked out of the Champions League, PSG fans are looking for a chat with him. He’s a great player and it sucks for a player of this level to be treated like that”.

In the match PSG – Rennes, some home fans booed, whistled mockingly every time Messi had the ball. Then, Rennes won 2-0 right at the Parc des Princes. At the end of the match, Messi went straight into the tunnel.

A group of crɑzy fans planned to whistle at Messi before the match. PSG defended the Argentinian player, but did not stop the extremist behavior.

If leaving PSG, returning to Barca may be the right direction for Messi. Many fans and players are still looking forward to this.

“Here we will treat him very well if he comes back,” insists Roberto. “With open arms, who doesn’t prepare for Messi’s return? We don’t want to say much because he, the president, the coach or someone else has to decide, but if it’s up to the players, we’re up to us. waiting for him”.

PSG fans began to criticize Messi after being eliminated from the Champions League. In the two round of 16 matches, PSG lost 0-1 and 0-2 to Bayern. According to many PSG fans, Messi’s dedication is not worthy of the salary he is receiving.

Messi’s relationship with PSG fans also deteriorated after the 2022 World Cup. In the final of this tournament, Messi’s Argentina team won 4-2 in the penalty shootout against France. Messi had to cancel plans to celebrate the victory at Parc des Princes after returning to the club.

The worsening relationship with the fans could be “the last straw” that caused Messi to leave PSG this summer. The 35-year-old striker’s contract is only valid until June. The two sides have negotiated an extension, but no results have been achieved.
