Luis Suarez has responded to the booing of his former Barcelona team-mates Lionel Messi and Neymar with a message of support on Instagram.
Messi and Neymar were booed throughout the first half of Paris Saint-Germain‘s Ligue 1 clash against Bordeaux.
When the tannoy read out their names at Parc des Princes, the crowd jeered.
PSG supporters are still furious about their Champions League exit to Real Madrid on Tuesday. After being 2-0 up on aggregate after 60 minutes of the second leg, the French giants capitulated in a crazy 20-minute spell which saw them concede three times. Karim Benzema netted a hat-trick.

His first goal came after he pressured Gianluigi Donnarumma into a mistake, before Real’s second occurred after Neymar lost the ball in the attacking third. The Spanish side then scored again to compile the misery within 10.5 seconds of kick-off.
A defensive clearance from Marquinhos fell straight into the path of Benzema, who guided the ball into the bottom corner with precision.

French outlet L’Equipe were savage in their player ratings. Donnarumma and Marquinhos got a rating of 2, whilst Neymar was given a 4. According to the outlet, Messi was one of PSG’s better performers, with a rating of 6.
Luis Suarez responds to Messi and Neymar boos
Luis Suarez played alongside Neymar at Barcelona for three years, and alongside Messi for six years.
Together, they formed arguably the greatest attacking trio in the world at the time. Barca won eight trophies whilst they played together, including the 2015 Champions League. All three players are close friends.
Speaking in 2016, Suarez said (quotes via Bleacher Report): “There is always something we laugh about. We laugh on and off the pitch. Ney is a happy guy, Leo too, although people don’t think it.
“Leo has an older child than Benja and one younger than Delfi [Suarez’s children], and the kids play. With Leo, we are the same age, and we share anecdotes from when we were teens. Our partners also get along really well.”
With all that in mind, Suarez is undoubtedly hurt to see two of his close friends being booed by their supporters.
Taking to Instagram, he posted a photo of himself, Messi and Neymar together, with the caption: “As always, football has no memory. I’m always with you! I love you very much!”
