Trouble brewing for Lionel Messi and Neymar at PSG
Trouble is brewing for Lionel Messi and Neymar after French side Paris Saint-Germain ordered extra security at the club’s training ground and at the homes of both players following protests by fans angry over recent results at the Ligue 1 leaders.
Several hundred psg supporters dressed in black gathered outside club headquarters yesterday, where they set off smoke flares and sang hostile chants about under-performing stars Messi, Neymar and Italian midfielder Marco Verratti.
Some supporters then traveled to Neymar’s home in a wealthy suburb west of Paris where they demanded his departure.
Despite a raft of superstar signings, the French giants have struggled against Europe’s elite and their constant failings in the game’s elite competition have become a running joke amongst rival supporters.
Meanwhile, Messi’s future at psg was plunged into doubt yesterday after he was suspended for two weeks for traveling to Saudi Arabia to fulfill a commercial role without the club’s permission.
The 35 year old according to reports may reject an offer from Barcelona and sign with Saudi Arabia’s Al-hilal for a staggering deal worth $600 million dollars which would make him the highest-paid athlete in the world.
