In an interview with RMC Sport, PSG President Al-Khelaifi said that fans might whistle Messi if they held a celebration for the Argentine superstar at the Parc des Princes.The reason PSG rejected MessiThe PSG president does not want to have opinions against the club if Messi appears: “I admit that Messi is the best player in history. The sudden move from Barcelona to PSG is a big challenge for I respect Messi very much.
However, I do not accept people speaking ill of Paris Saint-Germain. I want to honor the players while they are here, not after they leave. I really like Messi, but if a player says bad things about PSG after the breakup, it’s not good. That’s not respect. Messi is not a bad person, but I don’t like it.”Mr. Al-Khelaifi continued: “Moreover, we do not celebrate Messi because he won the World Cup against the French team and PSG captain Mbappe. Because we are also a French team , so we did not hold a ceremony to honor Messi to avoid fans whistling at him.”
Lionel Messi played two seasons at PSG and played 75 matches. He scored 32 goals and had 35 assists during his time on the field in France before moving to Inter Miami in the summer.
Lionel Messi also told ESPN Argentina that the fact that PSG did not celebrate his victory at the FIFA World Cup made him feel sad, but he also understood their reason when sarcastically mocking PSG: “I am the only player in The team is not recognized by PSG. That is understandable. Because we are the Argentinian team that won the world championship, but also against the French team.”The eight-time Ballon d’Or winner added: “It happened like that. It wasn’t what I expected but I always say everything happens for a reason. Even though I wasn’t really happy here, I became world champion during that time.”
