Anger is boiling among PSG fans in the wake of the club’s latest off-pitch drama, namely Lionel Messi’s (35) suspension for two weeks after taking an unauthorised trip to Saudi Arabia. Collectif Ultras Paris, PSG’s most ardent ultra group, called for a protest to be held in front of The Factory, the club’s Parisian headquarters, which was held on Wednesday in the early evening. The turn-out was impressive, with PSG fans venting their anger at Lionel Messi, the board and Neymar alike with derogative chants aplenty.

However, the protest seems to have spiralled out of control. A video emerged on social media showing a group of PSG fans chanting for Neymar to “get lost” in front of the Brazilia’s two-storey home in Bougival, a posh Parisian suburb. On Instagram, the Brazilian maverick posted a message on Instagram that reads: “They just left my doorstep” along with a sobbing emoji. The 31-year-old playmaker is currently sidelined after undergoing ankle ligament surgery.
