Paris Saint-Germain captain Marquinhos has hit out at the club's main ultra group for their lack of support during their 2-1 win over Marseille on Sunday night.

PSG ran out deserved winners at Parc des Princes to move within four points of the Ligue 1 title, while a victory at Angers in midweek will all but seal the deal due to their superior goal difference.

Neymar opened the scoring early on but his strike was cancelled out by Duje Caleta-Car's tap in from a Gianluigi Donnarumma error, before a Kylian Mbappe penalty settled the scores.

After a fast and frantic first-half, PSG squeezed the life out of the game in the second period and kept Marseille at arm's length.

However, Marquinhos was critical of the subpar support from the club's main ultras group, Virage Auteuil, who are continuing to protest the lack of changes at boardroom level in wake of last month's humiliating Champions League exit to Real Madrid.

“I wasn’t expecting it. It wasn’t the right time to do that. I understand if they haven’t gotten a response. They should have put their pride to one side. As a player, I don’t agree with it," Marquinhos told Prime Video.

Reports have emerged recently suggesting there has been a split in the ultras group due to their differing views on how to tackle PSG's European failings, as well as a string of other problems in the French capital.
