Messi ‘jeered’ by Camp Nou supporters
Marca report that Barcelona’s Lionel Messi was jeered by a section of his own support during yesterday’s match with Atletico Madrid.
With the La Liga title on the line, the Camp Nou crowd were said to have been frustrated by an apparent lack of effort and interest from the player.
The Argentine had another quiet match and rarely threatened the Rojiblancos defence as Diego Simeone’s team clinched the draw they needed to be crowned champions.
The article in the Spanish sports newspaper points out that the issue was compounded by the fact that, with Messi having signed a new contract at the club, Barca fans were expecting him to deliver the goods when they were needed most.
