The six-time Ballon d’Or winner, Lionel Messi made it clear that he was not pleased with Mauricio Pochettioon’s decision to have substituted him off against Lyon with just 15 minutes left to play.
Messi hit the angle of post and bar with a free-kick in the first half and forced a save from Anthony Lopes but this was below his best.
Neymar levelled things up from the penalty spot when he won a controversial spot-kick.
Pochettino then subbed Messi with just 15 minutes to play, much to the confusion of the home crowd as Archaf Hakimi replaced him.
The former Barcelona man did not receive this decision very well, as said something and shook his head briefly and refused shaking Pochettino’s hand.
Another substitute, Mauro Icardi, struck a dramatic winner at the death to ensure that PSG made it six wins from six, sparing the blushes of Pochettino.
Things have not been pleasant for Messi since he completed his free transfer to France following his heartfelt decision to leave Barca.
This is Messi’s third game for PSG , the third game he has ever played for a club other than Barcelona.
Even with link up play with his old Barca team-mate Neymar, fitting into the rest of the team remains a working progress for him.
PSG next game is Wednesday’s Ligue 1 trip to Metz, as they bid to make a seven wins from seven at the top of the league.
