PSG fans turn toxic towards Messi and Neymar launching abuse outside club’s HQ
Paris Saint-Germain fans have aimed abusive chants at Lionel Messi and Neymar after gathering en masse outside the club’s HQ.
It has been reported that World Cup winner Messi, who has been suspended by PSG after making an unsanctioned trip to Saudi Arabia, will leave the club this summer after two years in the French capital. The future of Brazilian superstar Neymar, who has been blighted by injury this season, is also up in the air and he could follow Messi out of the door at the Parc de Princes.
The pair, along with Kylian Mbappe, have failed to bring the Champions League to Paris, which has been the number one target of the club’s Qatari owners.

Barely hours after the Messi news broke than disgruntled fans began gathering at the club’s headquarters. Amid a toxic atmosphere, Messi and Neymar were both targeted with insults.
It was reported that "Messi, son of b****" was being chanted in both French and Spanish.

On Neymar, they raged: “Neymar get lost, Neymar get lost, Neymar, Neymar, Neymar, get lost.”
Both players can therefore expect frosty receptions when they return to PSG action. For Messi, that won’t be until the second half of May at least following his suspension and heavy fine for travelling to Saudi without the club’s permission.
He is expected to miss matches against Troyes on Sunday and AC Ajaccio on May 13. He will reportedly not train with the club, or be paid, for the two weeks. Messi played the full 90 minutes of the 3-1 loss to Lorient which left PSG just five points clear of arch-rivals Marseille at the top of Ligue 1.
There will be a clamour for Messi, who has scored 24 PSG goals this season, to return to Barcelona, the club he left two years following a glittering era of success with the Catalans. However, the La Liga leaders' financial problems could scupper any hopes of an emotional return to the Nou Camp. A mega-money move to the Middle East, where his great rival Cristiano Ronaldo now plays, could even beckon instead.
Meanwhile, Neymar, who hasn’t played since February, underwent ankle surgery in March is set to miss the rest of the season.
