Carlos Tevez Slams PSG for Their Treatment of Messi During His Two Seasons

Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi has endured a challenging two seasons in the French capital.

The 35-year-old has been booed at times and last week, the Argentine was initially suspended for two weeks after an unauthorized trip to Saudi Arabia. Nonetheless, Messi’s former teammate Carlos Tevez isn’t a fan of how the veteran has been treated during his time in Paris.

Furthermore, Tevez noted that the 2022 FIFA World Cup shouldn’t have needed to apologize for the trip. The former Manchester United man continued by saying PSG should’ve apologized to Messi for the ordeal.

“If you tell me, being a world champion, that he had to go and apologize for going on a trip when he had a day off, I would go back to Rosario and stay there drinking mate,” Tevez said on TyC Sports. “You -PSG- have to apologize to me, but Messi, the truth that the club puts above everything. You have to take off your hat.”

Tevez noted that PSG should remember where they used to be in Ligue 1 and that they have to appreciate having players like Messi on their squad,

“Afterwards, we can say thousands of things about a club where they didn’t really take care of him,” Tevez continued. “From the first moment he arrived, they didn’t take care of him.

“It will be because of the World Cup or something else, but you can’t treat a player like that who has led PSG to know him. I played against PSG when I was at Manchester United and they were in the middle of the table. The same as City when I signed, we had four showers and we changed in a container.”

After a week’s suspension, Messi will likely be in the starting 11 since he returned to training this week. Nonetheless, with Messi’s contract expiring in June, it appears these next few weeks could be his last with the French giants.
