PSG supporters have expressed their frustration with Lionel Messi following the club’s exit from the UEFA Champions League.

EKO HOT BLOG reports that Udinese defender, Nehuen Perez has said that it is a shame that Paris Saint-Germain fans boo Lionel Messi.
Messi and his teammate, Neymar, were jeered by their own fans during their home game against FC Bordeaux a few days ago.
The supporters expressed their frustration following PSG’s exit from the UEFA Champions League at the hands of Real Madrid during the 3-0 win against Bordeaux in Ligue 1 last weekend.
Reacting to the development, Perez, who was not happy with PSG fans, said Messi is an Idol.
“I saw what happened after on social media,” Perez told ESPN Argentina (via PSG Talk):
“I’m not sure what to say. It’s a shame what they did; there’s nothing else to say. Messi is our idol that we do this to him, it’s a shame.”
When Lionel Messi was announced by PSG in a blockbuster summer of transfers by the club, many fans assumed he would bring immediate success.
The Argentine had a proven track record, having been instrumental in Barcelona’s success over the last decade.
There was a feeling that, alongside Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, a long-awaited UEFA Champions League trophy would arrive come May. However, Messi has not hit the heights he reached as one of the sport’s greatest ever talents during a glittering period at Blaugrana.
Fans are yet to see the Argentinian take games by the scruff of the neck, as he had done so consistently in La Liga.
Mbappe’s impending departure to Madrid could mean that the veteran is expected to become the main man in Paris, a role he played to perfection in Catalonia.
