Lionel Messi, widely known as one of the greatest footballers of all time, found the opposition fans chanting his name during a 5-0 win for PSG.
Messi and PSG cruised to a 5-0 victory against Clermont Foot 63 on Sunday evening, as the Argentine scored two late goals and bagged an assist to send his side top of Ligue 1 after one game.

Messi is under pressure after a disappointing debut season with PSG under Mauricio Pochettino and despite winning Ligue 1 by a landslide, defeat in the Champions League knockout stage to Real Madrid was a low point.
The 35-year-old has one of the most illustrious individual and team trophy cabinets the world has ever seen, holding a record seven Ballon d’Or’s, four Champions League titles, and ten La Liga winners medals.
Alongside co-stars Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, Lionel Messi and PSG will be among the favourites to lift the Champions League trophy in 2023.
