Paris Saint-Germain almost clinched the French title after a simple win over Ajaccio (5-0), but afterwards the main topic of conversation was Lionel Messi. The Argentine – when he had possession of the ball – was whistled at by some of the PSG fans.

Last week, the 35-year-old superstar missed a PSG training session because he had left for Saudi Arabia for promotion work. Following that, the Argentine world champion was initially suspended by the Paris club for two weeks.


Messi apologized through a video message this week and regained his starting place. Some of PSG’s supporters have not yet accepted that apology, it turned out.

French news agency AFP reported Tuesday that star footballer is leaving PSG after this season for free. Messi is said to have signed a lucrative contract with a club in Saudi Arabia. His father denied that.

Easy win

PSG had few problems with Ajaccio, which has been relegated from the Ligue 1 by defeat. After twenty minutes, Fabián Ruiz put the Paris team ahead. Achraf Hakimi doubled the score before halftime.

Star player Kylian Mbappé – top scorer with 26 goals – decided the game with two goals. Mohamed Youssouf, who scored an own goal 15 minutes before time, set the final score at 5-0. Three rounds of play remain in the French league. PSG is six points ahead of pursuer Lens.
