‘Fans have every right to do so’ – Juninho backs PSG supporters’ decision to boo Lionel Messi

Lyon legend and current club sporting director Juninho has backed PSG fans’ decision to boo Lionel Messi. He believes the Argentine didn’t deliver the Champions League like every other player and shouldn’t be exempt from boos.

PSG fans are furious with the players after yet another UEFA Champions League exit. The Ligue1 side were beaten 3-0 by Bayern Munich in the round of 16 and are now waiting another year to get their hands on the European trophy.

speaking on RMC Sports, Juninho claimed he wouldn’t be surprised if Messi got booed by PSG fans. He said:

“Even though he’s Messi, he’s still a human being. In the minds of the fans, the last game he’s in is the game against Bayern and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if he gets booed. We’re playing , we are well paid , we do a job that we like … but in the end it’s for the fans that we do everything Even if he is Messi and even if he has scored 35 goals this season , it’s normal to boo him, the fans have every right to do so.”

Lionel Messi deserves boos, claims ex-PSG star

Former PSG winger Jerome Rothen has claimed Lionel Messi deserves to be booed by the fans. He has urged ultras to target the Argentine star and doesn’t think he needs to be given any excuses.

speaking on RMC SportsRothen said:

“Whether it’s Lionel Messi or another player, he can be whistled. Should we refrain from whistling because it’s Messi? For what ? Because his name is Messi? whether we are invested or not, the supporter is there just to open his mouth and applaud?

He added:

“Fans don’t have to say anything? They buy popcorn, eat burgers, drink their soda and that’s okay? Of course Lionel Messi can be whistled, he’s a player like any other. Otherwise, “We have to do something else, find another sport. There will be fewer supporters behind him, like me, and a lot of dissatisfied people since he signed for PSG.”

PSG will face Rennes in a Ligue 1 game at the Parc des Princes on Sunday March 19.
