Messi heckled by part of the Park (video)
On the sidelines of the kick-off of the match between PSG and Rennes, Lionel Messi was whistled by part of the public at the Parc des Princes.
For their first match at the Parc des Princes since their elimination in the knockout stages of the Champions League, Paris Saint-Germain receives Stade Rennais, this Sunday afternoon, as part of the 28th day of Ligue 1.
Pointed out since the defeat of the French champions in Bavaria (2-0), Lionel Messi was whistled by some Parisian supporters when the team composition concocted by Christophe Galtier was announced.

Before the meeting, Christophe Galtier defended his seven-time Ballon d’Or. ” Why ? Last season is last season. We put our supporters first, they are omnipresent, but there is no reason to whistle our players. They gave the maximum in this competition. Leo is 18 goals, 17 assists. We were not eliminated because of such and such. We were eliminated because Bayern arrived in much better shape than us in this competition. said the Parisian coach on Saturday at a press conference.
We remember that last season, the sevenfold Ballon d’Or, had been generously whistled by part of the public of the Park against Bordeaux, match which had followed the elimination of the Red and Blue against Real Madrid, once again in knockout stages of the Champions League.
