Presnel Kimpembe says he “understands” the whistling by PSG fans at Neymar and Lionel Messi

In speaking to Amazon Prime Video after PSG’s 3-0 win over Bordeaux, PSG defender Presnel Kimpembe addressed the booing and whistling throughout the game by home fans directed at Neymar and Lionel Messi after PSG’s Champions League exit to Real Madrid in the week. The Frenchman said:

“Inevitably we hear the whistles, even if we’re focused and concentrated on our match. We understand their disappointment, we understand their hatred. We’re professional, we know how to stay so too, and it’s now that we must raise our heads and be able to move forward in order to win Ligue 1… We are all at fault, no one more than anyone else. We are a team, we must stick together through good and bad. It’s time to show that we have character and that we’re a team by staying united and strong together, even if it’s hard, very hard.”
