Watch Messi and Neymar ask PSG boss for permission to leave pitch after being subbed in last game before World Cup

LIONEL MESSI and Neymar headed back to Paris Saint-Germain’s dressing room before the final whistle of their match yesterday… with the permission of boss Christophe Galtier.

The duo were both substituted in the 75th minute with their side comfortably 3-0 up against Auxerre at Parc des Princes.

They initially sat in the dugout with their team-mates, before deciding they’d rather head in for an early shower.

Rather than just get up and go, however, Neymar first sought the approval of Galtier.

The Brazilian gestured towards his manager, only leaving after getting the thumbs up.

He was joined by close pal Messi – with the duo both headed to the World Cup this week with Brazil and Argentina respectively.

Their team-mates weren’t exactly hindered by their absence from the bench, with Renato Sanches and Hugo Ekitike adding further goals to put extra gloss on their 5-0 win.

The triumph sees PSG remain top of Ligue 1 going into the break – five points above second-placed Lens.

Neymar’s first game at the 2022 World Cup will come next Thursday, when Brazil take on Serbia in Lusail.

While Messi will kick off his campaign against Saudi Arabia at the same venue on Tuesday.


Earlier this season, Cristiano Ronaldo was suspended by Manchester United after storming off to the Old Trafford dressing room before the end of his side’s 2-0 victory over Tottenham.

The Portuguese forward had refused to come on moments earlier – going on to exclusively reveal to The Sun’s Piers Morgan that he doesn’t respect manager Erik ten Hag.

Ronaldo, 37, will be in Qatar with Portugal – kicking off his campaign against Ghana in Doha next Thursday.
