CESC FABREGAS has hit back at Paris Saint-Germain fans who booed Lionel Messi and Neymar in their game against Bordeaux.
Some PSG supporters are still bitter over their side’s dramatic Champions League exit to Real Madrid in mid-week and they made their feelings known.

They jeered and booed every touch by Messi and Neymar – but their team-mates received no such abuse.
Fabregas was clearly shocked by the attitude of the fans and showed his support for the duo.
He wrote on Twitter: “Football has no memory whatsoever… it’s a shame. Always with you brothers.”
Neymar even received boos after scoring to put PSG 2-0 up.
But he arrived for big money in 2017 and has largely failed to deliver for the French giants, particularly in Europe.
Messi also revealed it was his goal to win the Champions League with PSG when he signed for the club last summer.
He has failed miserably after being knocked out in the last 16 with only Kylian Mbappe coming out of the Bernabeu defeat with any credit.
Indeed, Rio Ferdinand slammed Messi, Neymar and Mbappe after the defeat to Real, suggesting their egos were to blame for the loss.
Neymar may have regretted his decision to play against Bordeaux – he was rumoured to miss out due to his sister’s birthday, famously avoiding fixtures in order to spend time with her.
Perhaps he did not want to further aggravate important figures at the club amid claims PSG’s Qatari owners want to get rid of the Brazilian.
There are reported to be numerous issues that Neymar brings with his immense talent, including a poor agent-club relationship, constant injury problems, off the pitch issues and a lack of on pitch results.
