Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) has taken disciplinary action against Lionel Messi, suspending the Argentinian striker for two weeks due to an unauthorized trip to Saudi Arabia. Messi will not participate in matches, training sessions, and will not receive his salary during this period.

Details of the Suspension

As reported by RMC Sport, Messi was absent from Monday’s training session, having left for Saudi Arabia without the club’s permission. The decision to suspend him was made on Tuesday evening and went into effect immediately.

“PSG has taken this measure as a result of a serious internal violation. The club initiated a standard disciplinary procedure in response to an employee’s unauthorized absence.”

PSG’s New Sports Policy

This decision highlights PSG’s commitment to enforcing a new sports policy under President Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, emphasizing that no player is above the institution.

Upcoming Matches

During the suspension, PSG is scheduled to play two league matches:

  1. Away against Troyes on May 7 (8:45 p.m.)
  2. At home versus AC Ajaccio on May 13

Following these games, PSG will face three more opponents: Auxerre (21/05), Strasbourg (27/05), and Clermont (03/06).

Messi’s Saudi Arabia Trip

Lionel Messi traveled to Saudi Arabia as part of his lucrative contract, earning him approximately 30 million euros per year as the country’s tourism ambassador. However, the trip coincided with a recovery session at Camp des Loges, which Messi missed without informing his teammates or sporting adviser Luis Campos.

“Messi’s journey did not fail to surprise those who were unaware of his Parisian teammates. Sporting adviser Luis Campos had not been warned either, as reported by RMC Sport.”

This suspension highlights PSG’s commitment to upholding their sports policy and demonstrates that no player is above the institution.
