“As everyone saw, because we even published a video, we celebrated Messi in training, and we also celebrated him in private,” the PSG chairman said, as per Football Espana.

“But with respect, we are a French club. It was of course sensitive to celebrate at the stadium.

“We must respect the country he defeated, his teammates on the France team, and our supporters too.”
