French football pundit, Daniel Riolo has hit out at Paris Saint-Germain’s Lionel Messi for failing to celebrate the French Ligue 1 triumph with fans.
Messi scored the goal against Lens a few days ago that secured PSG the league title this season.
But the Argentine captain was absent from the celebrations at the end of the game.
The seven-time Ballon d’ Or winner has faced the ire of fans this season after failing to deliver the UEFA Champions League.
Speaking on RMC Sport, Riolo said that the Argentinean was one of the reasons ‘real’ fans of PSG are not in the stadium.
He said the 34-year-old doesn’t share anything with people and cannot continue to play for PSG.
“The sad title of Paris Saint-Germain, the sad season. I wonder if the club will finally understand why the real fans are outside the stadium! There are many symbols, like Messi, who is a champion and goes directly to the locker room!” Riolo said.
He added: “I don’t see how he could continue to play for this club when he doesn’t share anything with people. What are you playing for then? For the stamp? It’s not football anymore.”
