Lionel Messi’s screamer gives Paris Saint-Germain the Ligue 1 championship

Lionel Messi struck a spectacular long-range goal to help Paris Saint-Germain win the Ligue 1 championship on Saturday.

The Parisians knew a draw against RC Lens would secure a record-equaling 10th championship, and Mauricio Pochettino’s side stumbled to a 1-1 draw.

Even though Messi’s curling attempt from beyond the box was subsequently wiped out by Corentin Jean’s effort, the supporters were less than happy with the squad following an unimpressive season.

Many people were disappointed by PSG’s elimination from the Champions League this season after it was humiliated by Real Madrid in the round of 16.

Some fans even booed their team at halftime Saturday before fleeing the stadium with 15 minutes left in the game.

According to reports, the stadium was mostly empty within 10 minutes after the final whistle, with players missing the usual lap of honor after winning the championship.

“I’m overjoyed to have won another championship for the club, to have created history with the tenth.” “It’s huge for everyone and the club,” Pochettino remarked after the game, having sealed the championship with four games left.

“It’s not easy when you have a huge disappointment in the Champions League, but the players were really professional and battled hard to win the league.”

“I believe it is critical for the club to add another championship.” We’re overjoyed, and we need to give the title some weight.”

PSG has won eight of the previous ten French league championships, tying St-Etienne for the most trophies in league history.

However, for PSG supporters who are still waiting for the club’s first European trophy, the season has been difficult.

Messi’s arrival at the start of the season promised so much, but the 34-year-old has failed to replicate the sparkling form he showed at Barcelona for so many years.

Despite the domestic success, worries over Pochettino’s future at the club will continue, with work still needed to be done to restore a relationship with many of the supporters.
