Verratti nodded with a slight smirk before winding up his car window to exit the scene at the club's training grounds.
The 29-year-old Italian midfielder has come under a lot of scrutiny for his off-the-field lifestyle but remains unconcerned about his critics.
He told Le Parisien in 2019 as quoted by SportBIBLE: “We play football, but sometimes people forget that we are also human beings. We get days off, we can go out with our friends, with family.
“What I hate is when people have unchangeable ideas of me. But honestly, I don’t really care. Everyone is free to think about what they want. You can judge me on the things I do on the pitch, and what I can bring to the team. But not off of it.
“I always hear that I am injured because of my lifestyle… When I injured my ankle (in January) that had nothing to do with it, a player takes my foot away. Things are said about me, said about others, that is truly rubbish.”
