Mauricio Pochettino shocked the world as he subbed Leo Messi off against Lyon while the score was 1-1. Here's what the fans had to say about the decision from the PSG coach.
CrewsMat10: "Get Pochettino out. This guy shouldn’t even be managing the U16’s, let alone Messi."
CrewsMat10: "Messi’s gonna get Pochettino sacked by October so PSG can bring in Zidane and win a sextuple. This is why he’s the GOAT."
SUPERLM10_1: "Pochettino subbing Messi proved that Pochettino's heart is still at Espanyol."
Jayy7i: "Pochettino subbed out Messi at 1-1 and won the game. Messi is holding this PSG superteam back."
RoyNemer: "Not sure what Pochettino was thinking with that Lionel Messi substitute. It can't be a power trip and it can't be that Messi was tired. Pochettino has to be under some pressure at PSG even if they have won all of their matches. But the front three are slowly clicking."
Back at Barcelona, Messi was rarely taken off during games, and even if it happened, it was usually discussed in advance. This time, Leo seemed confused and frustrated by the decision and refused to shake Pochettino's hand.
