Breaking: Lionel Messi suspended by PSG following unauthorised Saudi Arabia trip


Lionel Messi has been suspended by Paris St Germain for two weeks after making an unauthorised trip to Saudi Arabia, according to reports.

Lionel Messi is said to have traveled after PSG’s home defeat by Lorient on Sunday without the club’s consent.

The 35-year-old, who has the role of tourism ambassador in Saudi Arabia, is expected to miss the matches against Troyes on Sunday and against AC Ajaccio on May 13.

He will reportedly not train with the club, nor be paid, for two weeks.

Lionel Messi played the full 90 minutes in a 3-1 defeat at Lorient that left PSG just five points clear of Marseille at the top of Ligue 1.

The Argentina captain has scored 24 goals for his club this season.
