PSG Suspends Leo Messi For Two Weeks Without Pay Over Unauthorized Trip To Saudi Arabia
PSG has reportedly suspended Lionel Messi without pay for two weeks after he visited Saudi Arabia without permission.
After missing training on Monday due to an unauthorised vacation to Saudi Arabia, the Argentine talisman was suspended and disciplined by club management on Tuesday, May 2.
Leo Messi was seen while on vacation in Riyadh with his family, including his children and wife, spending valuable time together while visiting old structures in the desert.
Messi’s trip to Saudi Arabia comes after the World Cup winner missed training following PSG’s shocking defeat to Lorient, which was not approved by head coach Christophe Galtier causing the French club to sanction him.
Even though a suspension has been given but Messi’s management is still waiting for official communication.
Meanwhile, report on Tuesday also suggests that, Lionel Messi is expected to leave PSG for Manchester City.
His comeback to Barcelona has been spurred by sporting director Joan Laporta, but due to financial difficulties, Leo’s departure is imminent.
According to caughtoffside, Pep Guardiola will meet with Manchester City’s board of directors and the athletes’ agents to discuss a possible move for the next season.
