It’s fair to say that Lionel Messi’s transfer to Paris Saint-Germain hasn’t been a unanimous success.
Despite leading the assist charts in Ligue 1, Messi’s lack of goals and PSG’s Champions League exit to Real Madrid have been a regular point of criticism from his detractors.
Last night he delivered a memorable moment for PSG fans though. With the score tied at 0-0, Messi unleashed an incredible shot from distance into the top corner. Their opponents RC Lens would get a late equaliser but a point was enough for the Parisians to take the Ligue 1 title.
LIONEL. MESSI. 💥
If anyone was going to break the deadlock it would be him! Simply MAGNIFICENT! 💫

Even so, the disharmony at the French champions seems to be present even in triumphs. The PSG ultras then marched out of the Parc des Princes with 15 minutes remaining as part of a protest about how the club is being run.
After the match, Sporting Director Leonardo also answered questions on Kylian Mbappe’s future, stating nothing had been decided.
