Lionel Messi looks unimpressed on bench as he’s subbed off with PSG chasing goal vs Monaco while Mbappe stays on

LIONEL MESSI looked far from impressed as he was subbed off with Paris Saint-Germain chasing a winner in Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Monaco.

Despite scoring three and assisting two in four Ligue 1 games this term, it wasn’t the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner’s night.

Messi, 35, cruelly hit the post from distance just before half-time, and Kylian Mbappe’s rebound effort also smashed off the woodwork.

Neymar scored the equaliser from the penalty spot in the second half after being brought down inside the area.

PSG continued to push for a winner hoping to make it four wins in a row in the French top flight.

However, manager Christophe Galtier subbed off one of his biggest goal threats, Messi, with time still left in the game.

Pablo Sarabia replaced the legendary Argentine, while Mbappe – who also had a poor night in front of goal – stayed on.

Messi cut a frustrated figure on the Parisians’ bench.

With less than a year left on Messi’s PSG contract, former club Barcelona remain keen on a reunion.

Messi left Barca last summer after the club were left paralysed and unable to renew his contract due to their financial troubles.
