When Paris Saint-Germain supporters decided to share their frustration following the capital club’s UEFA Champions League Round of 16 elimination at the hands of Real Madrid by booing Lionel Messi, it caused many to share their disapproval.
In an interview with TyC Sports, Messi only had one concern when it came to the booing, which he stated that there’s an understanding when it comes to the frustration. However, the 34-year-old was more concerned with hoping his kids didn’t see or hear the booing.
“I immediately asked what the children had said if they had seen it, what they thought or what they said, and the truth is that I did not like that my family was there and that they heard people whistling at me, and that my children were there and that they had to pass for that,” Messi said.
“They didn’t tell me anything; they kind of let it go. They didn’t understand anything because they didn’t realize why either. I know they felt something.”
