Paolo Di Canio has slammed PSG flop Lionel Messi

Paolo Di Canio has slammed PSG flop Lionel Messi, saying the Barcelona legend lacks personality and deserves fans booed.

Messi and PSG teammate Neymar were heckled and jeered by supporters on Sunday during the 3-0 Ligue 1 win over Bordeaux.

Fans blamed the South American pair for their dismal performances during PSG’s stunning collapse to Real Madrid in the Champions League.

PSG was leading 2-0 on aggregate with 30 minutes to go of their last-16 tie but capitulated to lose 3-2 on aggregate as Karim Benzema scored a 17-minute hat-trick.

What did Paolo Di Canio say about Messi?

“Messi left the pitch scratching his head. He has no emotions,” Di Canio said on Sky Sport Italia.

“I prefer Cristiano Ronaldo. ‘Do you want me to sit on the bench against Man City? First, I go back to Portugal, then I return and score a hat-trick.’

“I prefer the human who has a soul to the alien without emotions.

“Messi showed his personality limits. Booing him is, of course, perfectly fine. There were thousands of fans waiting for him.

“They were dreaming, but his behaviour was not the right one.

“Neymar was even worse. He is not doing remarkable things and last month.

“He said that he wanted to go to the MLS to have three months’ holiday.

“I mean, have respect. You must have some problems.”

PSG brought Messi and Neymar to bring the Champions League to PSG, but both have underperformed.

The Argentine has been a big disappointment since joining a Bosman transfer from Barcelona last summer.

It took him until November 20 to score his first league goal, and he still only has two goals now.

Neymar has also shown signs of decline this term, scoring five goals in all competitions and none in the Champions League.
