Matio Gundouzi, who was on international duty with France last night, blamed home supporters as the hosts defeated Kazakhstan 8-0 in the Parc des Princes.
The 22-year-old is currently loaned to Arsenal in Marseille, meaning he is less popular than many Parisians who support the traditional rivals, PSG.
In the days before the match, Guendouzi expressed concern about playing it at the Parc des Princes, instead suggesting that it should take place in the Stade de France – not just around town.
His fears were justified because, shortly before the game, Gundouzi’s name was rounded up and mocked when the stadium announcers read.

The defensive midfielder has impressed for Marseille this season, earning his first France call in nearly two years as a result of his good club form.
Although he has yet to make a senior appearance on Didier Deschamps, the 23-man squad for next year’s World Cup race shows that the former Monaco boss has confidence in Gundouzi’s abilities.
Staying in Marseille gives Qatar a great chance to get a seat on the plane next year – the future of their arsenal is still up in the air.
In a recent interview, the former Lorient youth standout made it clear that he sees his long-term future ahead of the Emirates in Marseille.
“I want to be part of the long-term with Marseille. I’m very comfortable there. I want to enjoy myself in Marseille.”
