Leo Messi's stage at PSG has not been as expected. The Argentine arrived in Paris two seasons ago as an idol, but this past Saturday he said goodbye to the fans of the Parque de los Príncipes between whistles and with less than expected haul of titles, two leagues and a Cup. In addition, the Parisian team closed the season with a defeat against the modest Clermont (2-3).
Before the start of the duel, the fans of the French champion already warned of their intentions. The fans dedicated whistles to Rosario when his presence in the starting eleven was announced, a practice that has been repeated in the last stretch of the season, especially after the elimination of the Champions League in the round of 16 against Bayern Munich.
In addition to Rosario's, it was also Sergio Ramos's last game with the PSG shirt. Both were received by the club's president, Nasser Al Khelaifi, in the locker room, where they received a trophy as a tribute to his time with the French team. After the institutional act, the ex-madridista, scorer against Clermont, noted the warmth of the spectators, while the disaffection towards Messi lasted more than 90 minutes.
Messi did not achieve his best game in his farewell to the team, officially announced hours before in a PSG statement, and after the final whistle he was again reprimanded by the fans. After the defeat against Clermont, the celebration for the achievement of Ligue 1 began. In a party of light and colours, the Parisian team celebrated the achievement of the title and the entry of Messi onto the pitch, together with Mbappé and Neymar. , was again accompanied by whistles.
With a face of circumstances most of the time, the former Barça player did not participate in the lap of honor until the end and started the path to the changing rooms, avoiding the photographers, before the vast majority of his teammates. It was the last image of Messi as a PSG player.
After his stage in France, Messi will decide his next destination in the coming days. The Argentine handles the dizzying offer from Saudi Arabia, with record fees, and is also waiting for the door to open for Barça, where they await the go-ahead from LaLiga for the feasibility plan to be able to present a firm offer to the one who has been the best player in the club's history.
