Despite bagging two Ligue 1 titles and the French Super Cup during his time in Paris, the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner's two-year stint did not reach the heights expected of him, which was evidenced in their disappointing Champions League campaigns, per Le Monde.

The 35-year-old's exit, which was confirmed by the club on Saturday, has led to a shocking gesture from an avid fan.

What did PSG fan do?

The fan was spotted watching PSG's final game of the season against Clermont on his mobile device while taking a walk.

Following the conclusion of the match, the fan, initially dressed in a PSG shirt, made the decision to discard it, depositing it in a nearby bin.

To emphasize his unwavering allegiance to the 2022 World Cup winner, the fan also took to the popular photo-sharing platform, Instagram, where he unfollowed the Ligue 1 champions.
