PSG suspend Messi for 2 weeks following unauthorised trip to Saudi Arabia.

Reigning French Ligue 1 champions, Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly suspended Lionel Messi for two weeks following his unauthorized trip to the Saudi Arabia.

According to sports analyst, Fabrizio Romano “the suspension will take place now after Messi’s trip to Saudi NOT authorized by the club as per @RMCsport.

“Paris Saint-Germain have decided to suspend Lionel Messi with immediate effect for two weeks, sources confirm,” Romano tweeted.

According to further reports PSG manager Christophe Galtier had promised his players that they would have two days off, Monday and Tuesday, if they defeated Lorient on Sunday.

However, Galtier made it clear that a loss would see the players being called in for training on Monday.

Messi had requested to travel to the Arab gulf to honour his sponsorship deal as a Saudi ambassador.

Galtier and sporting director Luis Campos gave him approval to go only if PSG win or draw, but not a defeat.

However, following the 3-1 defeat to Lorient, Messi flew to Saudi Arabia without asking again for permission, meaning he could not attend training on Monday.
