It was expected, it is now official: after two seasons in Ligue 1, some feats of arms but still no Champions League for Paris SG, Lionel Messi leaves the club on a last defeat Saturday where he was again whistled.
The departure of the seven-time Ballon d'Or, 36 years old on June 24, closes a turbulent chapter of two years during which the Argentine has sometimes shone, but above all experienced a growing disenchantment, to the point of becoming the target of the whistles of the Parc des Princes, once again at the announcement of the composition of the teams and also during the title ceremony after the match.
"I think the whistles are very hard, like the season, I don't know why, maybe I'll find explanations, reasons to understand the treatment of Leo," Galtier told a news conference, adding that Messi had "behaved like a great professional, he has interesting statistics, in a season where he played a lot."

With this new defeat at the Parc against Clermont (3-2), the Argentine, who did not participate in the post-match lap of honor with his teammates, leaves PSG on a new missed match.
With 16 assists, he is the best passer in L1 this season, in addition to his 16 goals.
Before the match, we asked PSG fans what they remembered from the Argentine star's visit to the capital.
