Ligue 1: You want worse players than Messi, Neymar – Ronaldinho slams PSG’s fans

Brazil football legend, Ronaldinho, has hit out at the jeers aimed at the Paris Saint-Germain duo of Lionel Messi and Neymar this season.

Ronaldinho, speaking with RMC Sport, asked rhetorically if the fans would rather have “the worst players in the world”.

PSG have won only the Ligue 1 title this campaign, but their failure in the Champions League has seen the supporters turn on the players.

However, Ronaldinho, who himself played for PSG, said: “I don’t understand because there are all the great players.

“You want to change everything? What do you want to have, the worst players in the world?

“We have to wait for them to understand this new way of living and playing football. The rest will come slowly. This adaptation is normal, to do things well.

“[Neymar] is one of the best players in the world. He’s had several injuries this year. When he’s at 100 per cent, he’s a really special player for this team. Neymar, Di Maria, Messi… the greatest players are together. If you’re not happy with that, who are you going to play with?”
