As reported by Le Parisien, Lionel Messi has become angered by the criticism of his performances from the French media since his move to France in the summer.
It’s something that has become a hot topic in the PSG dressing room after Messi expressed his frustration with the senior players in the team. Messi, according to the newspaper, sees media criticism as unjustified.
Things came to a head for the 34-year-old and his team after a negative reaction to his performance against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League last month. That forced those close to the player to jump in to his defense, such as Argentine teammate Sergio Agüero on Twitch and Monaco midfielder Cesc Fabregas, speaking at Spanish daily Marca.
Messi leads Ligue 1 with 10 assists so far this season.
