The Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) win against Lyon in the French Ligue 1 on Sunday has left the field, but discussions are still going on around Lionel Messi. It was the Argentine superstar’s first match at home in a PSG jersey. He has previously played one match in League One and one in the Champions League but has not scored a goal since winning the Ballon d’Or six times.
Messi was able to score the first goal in the Paris jersey but was not able to achieve it in the end. Meanwhile, coach Mauricio Pachettino was at the center of the discussion as Messi was picked up from the field despite the team winning the match.
The coach decided to replace Messi in the 75th minute of the match. Messi was seen avoiding home side coach Pachettino, who was on the sidelines when he left the field. He sat straight on the bench. Messi’s supporters have criticized the PSG coach’s decision on social media.
