Lionel Messi motivated by Parc des Princes boos to bounce back

RMC Sport report this afternoon that Lionel Messi was affected by the booing from Paris Saint-Germain fans during the win over Bordeaux yesterday.

However, those close to him have said that the episode will have given him a desire to show that he is still a player who can make the difference, that he’s hasn’t been dejected by the situation and he will remain involved until the end of the season.

The Argentine was subjected to the loudest boos, alongside his former Barcelona teammate Neymar, as the Parc des Princes showed its discontent at the Champions League defeat to Real Madrid.

Although PSG would run out 3-0 victors – including a goal from the Brazilian – the strained atmosphere overshadowed the occasion, as fan protests look to continue in the wake of the late collapse in Madrid.
