Di Maria Reveals How Messi Reacted To Being Booed

Angel Di Maria has revealed how Lionel Messi has reacted to being booed by Paris Saint-Germain fans on several occasions since their UEFA Champions League exit. 

Messi Hits Unfortunate Milestone At PSG

Although the French giants recently claimed the 2021/22 Ligue 1 title, the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner's season has been full of disappointment and misfortune.

After their round of 16 collapse in Europe, PSG supporters voiced their anger by taking aim at superstars Messi and Neymar with jeers and banners, while some even refused to celebrate the team's league title victory. 

Di Maria, whose contract in Paris expires in June, cannot quite comprehend the boos his club and country teammate has received, but insisted that Messi has hardly paid attention to the noise. 

"The best player in the world whistled, it's hard to believe," he said, speaking on Urbana Play 104.3 FM.

"But, here at the club, people, the ultras are demanding, they are very passionate and they see the best players arrive, a team and we are eliminated in the 8th final of the Champions League, it is normal that they are disappointed. It happens everywhere. Here, it happens with the best in the world.

"Leo does not pay attention, it's a detail, it's soccer. We know that it is like that, it must be like that. We have to be strong. That's football, these things happen."

Messi has a contract in the French capital until 2023, and, at this point, seems likely to see it out. 

Here are some footballers who are already confirmed to be leaving their current clubs ahead of next season:
