Lionel Messi jeered by PSG fans in final game despite club’s praise

As Lionel Messi played his final game for Paris Saint-Germain in their 3-2 home defeat by Clermont on Saturday, a section of the PSG supporters jeered him.

The expected departure of the Argentinian World Cup winner from the French club after two seasons was officially confirmed by PSG in a statement shortly before the game.

PSG president Nasser al-Khelaifi praised Messi’s contribution to the club and Ligue 1, but some fans still chose to jeer him during the match.

The game had little significance after PSG secured their 11th French title last weekend, but Kylian Mbappe was looking to finish as Ligue 1’s top scorer for a fifth consecutive season.

Sergio Ramos, whose departure from PSG was confirmed on Friday, marked his final appearance by scoring the opener in the 16th minute.

Mbappe then scored a penalty to make it 2-0 before Johan Gastien and Mehdi Zeffane scored for Clermont to level the game before Grejohn Kyei scored the winner in the second half.

The result sees Clermont finish the season in eighth place, while PSG end the season with seven league defeats, all of them suffered in 2023.
