Former UEFA president and Juventus legend, Michel Platini, has insisted that Paris Saint-Germain’s Lionel Messi cannot complain about his club’s fans booing him because the ‘customer is always right.’
Messi was booed by PSG fans during their French Ligue 1 home game against FC Bordeaux a few days ago.
The fans expressed their frustration after PSG’s elimination from the Champions League against Real Madrid.
Speaking to RMC Sport show, Rothen s’enflamme, Platini said: “[Lionel Messi] understands them as well, but it does hurt. I was also whistled at in the Parc des Princes.
“But never at Saint-Etienne, nor at Juventus. You are allowed to whistle. The customer is always right. I wouldn’t do it myself.
“Everyone has the right to whistle, to insult… the football pitch is an outlet. You’re allowed to, but it’s a bad experience [for the player].”
