Former French forward Jerome Rothen plans to no longer go to the Parc des Princes for Paris Saint-Germain matches if the Ligue 1 club signs Lionel Messi to a new contract deal.
PSG’s UEFA Champions League campaign came to a sudden end on Wednesday, as Bayern Munich clinched a 3-0 aggregate win in their round of 16 tie. The reigning Ligue 1 champions entered the campaign among the serious contenders to win the competition, but they will now feature in just league fixtures for the remainder of the season.
PSG will have multiple notable decisions to make in the upcoming summer transfer window, including on whether it will go all out to keep Messi at the club. The Argentine forward is set to become a free agent after the ongoing season, and if he ends up staying put at PSG, Rothen will stop attending the club’s home fixtures.
“Come now, I expect you on these games,” Rothen said on RMC Sport’s “After Foot” program. “Come and explain to me that Messi is good. If tomorrow I learn that he extends, I will not go to the Parc des Princes.
“These are real problems for PSG because it blocks to recruit because the wage bill is huge because of these players.”
Messi is currently the second-highest-paid player in world football today, earning a €63.64 million (gross) salary this season.
PSG will return to Ligue 1 play on matchday 27 with an away fixture against Brest.
Messi and Ney has won the champion league. All these french football pundits talking rubbish, can’t u let the players to rest? Critisising Messi and Ney.
French journalist some of them are stupid to blame Messi, I don’t get it which player is better than Leo Messi in PSG, I know what I I am saying I think this is the time Messi should leave PSG period
A team without a good midfield and keeper naw blame on Messi
Who cares if you go out of the world, all I see is jealousness..
Jerome Rothem is actually rotten. He is just using Messi to chase clout
He’s nothing if I’m a coach Rothem will not even sit on my bench,my advice for Leo Messi is to leave the club as soon as possible, we love him Leo is the greatest of all time so nobody should disrespect him a beg French journalist.
It was d whole that got beaten, why blame Messi…
Fuck Jerome Rothen, he is not the only PSG fan and he must keep his opinions to himself…who there hell do he think he is?he got no right on telling PSG who to renew their contract with or who they don’t have to renew their contract with…🖕😤😡
FRANCE FOOTBALL SUPPORTERS ARE WITCHES. MESSI COULDN’T CELEBRATE HIS WORLD CUP WIN BACK AT THE TEAM IT’S ALWAYS MESSI THIS, NEYMAR THAT. WHERE ARE THE FRENCH COWS OF THE TEAM. IS PSG A TWO MAN TEAM. AS FOR THE GUY ON STRIKE, WHY NOT HE STRIKE BY STITCHING HIS BACKSIDE AND NOT GO TO THE LOO.
Who is Rothen? Never heard of him. Maybe he wants to help PSG but certainly not by talk
Messi & Neymar should leave PSG which has becoming toxic in terms relationship among players.
Bunch of pussies
Problem of lost with Bayern?
both German goals were scored because the referee did not give a foul for the collision when the French had the ball. if you review it you can understand it. it is neither your fault nor the team’s fault
Only a French can say that! Bad looser!
