The unexpected has happened as Mauricio Pochettino took Leo Messi off during Paris Saint-Germain's home match against Lyon.

Back at Barcelona, the 34-year-old was almost never taken off during the games. And if it happened, it was usually discussed before the game.

This didn't seem to have been the case against Lyon as Messi seemed frustrated with the coach's decision. Leo even refused to shake Pochettino's hand as he was heading towards the bench.

While on the bench, Leo didn't look satisfied at all. And even some of his teammates couldn't understand the decision from Pochettino.

PSG eventually won the match 2-1 but Achraf Hakimi, the one to replace Leo, had nothing to do with it. It's also worth noticing that Messi was perhaps the Parisians best player on the pitch in the first half, came really close to scoring several times.
