Lionel Messi, a striker for Paris Saint-Germain, issued an apology for his “unauthorised” travel to Saudi Arabia, which resulted in his suspension from the French club. On May 2, the Argentine was put on indefinite leave from the team and removed from training.
Firstly, I want to apologise to my colleagues and the club, Messi stated in a video apology posted on Instagram. I was honestly under the impression that, like in previous weeks, we would get a day off following the game.
“I had planned this trip, which I have already cancelled. I was unable to cancel it again. I’ll say it again: I want to apologise for what I did. I’m waiting to find out what the team plans to do with me,” Messi remarked.
“PSG manager” Christophe Galtier denounces player demonstrations outside players’ houses while claiming he had “nothing to do” with Messi’s ban.
With five games remaining, PSG leads Ligue 1 by five points, but it is eliminated from the Champions League and has lost in the round of 16 of the French Cup. Following their loss to the hosts in Ligue 1, there were demonstrations from the crowd.
Another big investigation into Messi’s relationships with PSG was conducted after the news of his ban circulated. After receiving a ban, it was announced on Wednesday that Messi would depart PSG at the end of the current campaign since the French champions have no intention of giving the forward a new deal.
In the French League-1 this year, the Argentine has recorded 15 goals and fifteen assists. In all games for the 2022–23 season, Messi has “20 goals and 19 assists.”
In 71 games over the past two seasons taken together, Lionel Messi has registered 31 goals and provided 33 assists since joining PSG in 2021.
Lionel Messi could perhaps return to FC Barcelona, according to speculation. Messi’s return to Camp Nou is desired by “Barca President” Joan Laporta and former player and current manager Xavi.
