Paris Saint-Germain fans left a stadium early Saturday, minutes before the football club won its 10th Ligue 1 title.

“It was surreal that part of the audience left the stands,” Neymar said via ESPN.

PSG captain Marquinhos called the atmosphere at the stadium “a shame”.

“Football is our passion,” Marquinhos told Canal +. “We will try to have as much fun as possible. It’s a shame not to be with the fans, but we have to deal with it.”

Despite PSG winning the Ligue 1 title, fans were still annoyed by the team’s lack of Champions League success.

Neymar on Saturday mentioned the mockery he faced when the team was eliminated from the Champions League after a devastating loss to Real Madrid in the quarter-finals earlier in the season.

“They’re getting tired of whistling because I have another three years left on my contract,” Neymar said.

“It’s something I do not understand,” added PSG midfielder Marco Verratti. “I know they were disappointed with Madrid, but at some point you have to move on.”

PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino, who won the first league title of his managerial career, was less critical of fans, although he claimed they should have shown respect “for this title.”

“We are going through a difficult period with the fans and we hope it gets better,” he said. “We are in a democracy and we accept all protests. But we have to show respect for this title.”

PSG striker Kylian Mbappé said he would not let the angry fans bother him for what should have been a festive moment.

“The audience was here, it’s a minority that left. They are not representative of all the supporters, but rather a minority. The stadium was full,” he added. “We celebrated with each other in the dressing room; the only thing missing was the cup. I enjoy it.”
