The protests follow the PSG suspending Messi for some two weeks after the Argentine took an unauthorized trip to Saudi, Arabia. Supporters have mocked Messi and Neymar at the Parc des Princes on a number of separate occasions this season, however, the CUP clarified the protests are related to a wider issue at the club. In a statement released on Wednesday, the CUP criticized the signings of overrated players and mercenaries and high ticket prices. Clearly disgraced with the direction of the club, the statement also refers to the club potentially moving away from the Parc des Princes in the future while suggesting football not commercial expansion.

The club has condemned the actions of the supporters since. Paris Saint-Germain most strongly condemns the intolerable and insulting actions of a small group of individuals that took place on Wednesday. The statement added that whatever the differences of opinion, nothing justifies such actions. Therefore, the club gives its full support to its players, its staff, and all those targeted by such shameful and not-so-good behavior. Currently, the PSG are five points clear of Marseille with five games to go but have lost three of their last six games and crashed out of the Champions League again in the round of 16 to Bayern Munich.
