Brazil legend, Rivaldo, has told Lionel Messi and Neymar to take the bull by the horn and turn things around quickly after the duo were booed by Paris Saint-Germain fans.
The match after their elimination from the Champions League, Messi and Neymar, were booed by their own fans during their home game against FC Bordeaux a few days ago.
The supporters expressed their frustration following PSG’s exit from the UEFA Champions League at the hands of Real Madrid.
However, Rivaldo believes that it is no strange thing in football, adding that the fans were simply hurt and disappointed by the team’s early elimination from the Champions League, although having all it takes.
“It’s not easy to be booed by your own fans, but it is something that happens to big-name players occasionally, since fans expect wonders from these kinds of athletes,” Rivaldo told Betfair.
“PSG fans are hurting, knowing their wait for that first Champions League title will go on for at least one more season. After recruiting Neymar and Lionel Messi, it will always be a disappointment to be knocked out of the tournament so early in the season.
“Both players will be disappointed after being eliminated and need to understand that boos are normal in these circumstances. Their responsibility now is to turn things around as soon as possible.”
In a similar event, another Brazilian legend, Ronaldo, has stated that Barcelona are lucky to have Aubameyang.
Brazil legend, Ronaldo Nazario has revealed that signing Barcelona striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was a free gift for the team.
Speaking to Barca TV (as quoted by Forbes), Ronaldo said the former Dortmund attacker is a great signing for Barcelona, adding that he has the characteristics of a traditional centre-forward.
“I love how he moves, how he finishes. He has the characteristics of a traditional center-forward, but he also has the speed to go into space,” Ronaldo said.
“He is a great striker and a great signing for Barca.”
The ex-Arsenal player has not stopped to impress spectators,since joining Xavi Hernandez’s men.
Aubameyang scored an astonishing brace in Sunday’s Barcelona’s LaLiga El Clasico 4-0 win over Real Madrid last weekend.
Aubameyang has now scored nine goals in all competitions for Barca so far this season.
