Lionel Messi is on the verge of joining Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer following the 34-year-old’s departure from FC Barcelona due to the economic and structural obstacles preventing both parties from reaching a contract extension.
Spanish program El Chiringuito de Jugones is a theatrical comedy show over the last two days with the departure of Messi. Nonetheless, the award for best performance when reacting to the 34-year-old being on the doorstep of PSG is former Argentine goalkeeper Jorge D’Alessandro.
D’Alessandro is calling for protests in the city of Barcelona due to Messi’s departure. There’s a video with English subtitles for those who don’t speak Spanish to enjoy the performance.
🔥 "¡¡Me HAN QUITADO a MESSI! ¡Me han MENTIDO!!"
