Saint Germain’s Declaration Regarding the Disparagement of Messi

On Wednesday, Paris Saint-Germain issued a statement commenting on the club’s ultras on duty, who attacked many players and officials, led by Argentine Lionel Messi, and demanded his expulsion.

The Paris Saint-Germain ultras association organized a protest in front of the club’s headquarters on Wednesday evening.

Parisian supporters expressed their anger and targeted club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi and some of the team’s stars such as Lionel Messi, Neymar da Silva and Marco Verratti, as well as coach Christophe Galtier, with hostile chants.

Angry PSG fans demanded the departure of the club’s management and cursed Messi at his mother in French and Spanish.

“The club condemns in the strongest possible terms the intolerant and offensive actions of a small group of individuals that took place on Wednesday,” PSG said in a statement.

He added: “Whatever the differences, nothing can justify such actions. The club fully supports its players, management and all those involved in this shameful behaviour.”

Yesterday, Tuesday, the French media confirmed that Paris Saint-Germain had decided to suspend Messi for two weeks due to the fact that he traveled to Saudi Arabia without obtaining permission from the French club.

Messi traveled to Saudi Arabia last Monday, the day after Saint Germain’s surprise 1-3 defeat at home against Lorient in French league competition.

Because of this punishment, Messi will miss Saint-Germain’s matches against Troyes and Ajaccio in the next two rounds of the French league.
