They came just a day after Poch’s side reclaimed the Ligue 1 title from Lille with a 1-1 draw against Lens.
but PSGMadrid supporters attacked the manager and players after being kicked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid.

The 49-year-old guided the Spanish giants to three Champions League successes and two titles during his tenure.
