Former Arsenal captain Thierry Henry has said he was not surprised by Lionel Messi’s reaction after he was substituted during Paris Saint-Germain’s 2-1 win over Lyon.

PSG came back to defeat their Ligue 1 rivals on Sunday and maintain their 100% record this season.

Lucas Paqueta opened the scoring for Lyon in the second half, before Neymar tied with a controversial penalty.

It seemed that the match would end in a draw, until Mauro Icardi headed home with a goal from the hosts in the 93rd minute.

At that time, Messi’s home debut had been prematurely interrupted by Mauricio Pochettino.

And the Argentine made his disapproval clear with his substitution in the 76th minute, refusing to shake Pochettino’s hand as he trudged to the bench.

Speaking after the game on Amazon Prime, Henry was asked if he had been surprised by Messi’s reaction, Henry replied, “No, not really. I’m not surprised.

“Maybe he didn’t want to go out. We don’t know what they are saying. Let’s not start the controversy. Surely he wanted to stay on the field to be able to score.

“But it will come, it will come silently. It takes time to adjust for even the best player in the world. “
