Things aren’t going well for Lionel Messi right now. The Argentinian forward won his 7th Ballon d’Or merely months ago, and the season had a lot of promises in it for him. However, it all came crashing down in the UCL this week.

PSG lost against Real Madrid in their Round-of-16 tie after a defensive meltdown that gifted their opposition three goals. Kylian Mbappe scored both of the goals for PSG, but his contributions weren’t enough in the end. Messi was practically absent while Neymar did get the assists for both of Mbappe’s goals.

Luis Suarez shows his support for Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr

As a result, PSG fans weren’t pleased with their star forwards and decided to boo Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr every time they touched the ball in their league match against Bordeaux. Even though PSG won the match in the end, the booing didn’t stop, and Neymar’s goal didn’t change that either.

The fans spared Kylian Mbappe as he has been their best player this season by a mile. Several people did come out to stand up for Messi and Neymar. One of them was Atletico Madrid’s star forward Luis Suarez.

Suarez still loves his former teammates as he posted a message on Instagram, showing his support for Messi and Neymar. “As always, football has a very short memory. I’m always with you guys. Love you guys so much,” Suarez wrote.

However, after a year, Neymar left the club, leaving Suarez and Messi to pick up the pieces. Suarez left the club two years ago, and Messi finally left before the start of this season. However, their dominance in club football will never be forgotten.
