Paris Saint-Germain coach Mauricio Pochettino and center-back Marquinhos criticized fans at the Parc des Princes for their lack of support in Sunday's 2-1 win over Marseille in Classique.
Neymar scored in the 12th minute and Duje Caleta-Car equalized almost 20 minutes later from a corner kick by Dimitri Payet at home.
At the start of the match, PSG scored a promising ball in the Marseille defender's elbow, but VAR awarded Kylian Mbappe a penalty from the VAR, who took a 2-1 lead to take the lead.
In the second half, Marseille equalized with more than 60% own goal, and in the 85th minute, William Saliber fired home a Payet free-kick, but the VAR ruled it out.
PSG have six games left to play and are 15 points adrift of second-placed Marseille, but the crowd's support does not feel like they are winning the League Cup.
"We are still waiting for supporters to use the energy to support us," he said.
"It simply came to our notice then. As I have always said, freedom of expression; That is the way they express themselves. We must respect this. But I always want the support of my supporters.
"Winning the 10th trophy in club history is not a trivial matter and we want to have [experience] with them."
Virage Auteuil, the club's main supporter after the disappointing departure from Real Madrid and the Champions League, said he was "still surprised" by the lack of change in the board and management level.
"I did not expect it. It is not time to do it," he said.
"If they do not respond, I understand, but their pride should be put aside. As a player, I do not agree with that."
