Parc des Princes will see Paris Saint-Germain return to action after their Champions League elimination against Bayern Munich. Fans are expected to show their anger against their team for that elimination in Sunday’s match against Rennes.
However, the spotlight is on Leo Messi who is having a great season at PSG, with assists and important goals, but some people don’t think so. Juninho, former Lyon and Brazil national team player, would not be surprised if Leo Messi was booed by the fans at the Parc des Princes.
On RMC Sport, they talked about what could happen in that PSG match, with Juninho attacking the Argentine world champion: “Even if he is Messi, he is still a human being. In the fans’ minds, the last game he’s in is the Bayern game and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if he gets booed.”
The Brazilian explains the reasons why the fans may take it out on the players for negative results: “We play, we are well paid, we do a job that we really like… but in the end, it is for the fans that we do everything”.
Finally, the former Lyon man took aim at Messi: “Even if he is Messi and even if he scored 35 goals this season, it’s normal to boo him, the fans have every right to do so. In Ligue 1, they dominate their opponents. What surprises me is the lack of aggressiveness.”
PSG‘s match against Rennes will serve to dispel doubts about the Parisian team that will focus on closing the championship as soon as possible, to think about next season with new objectives.
