PSG Lionel Messi Faces Disciplinary Action Over Unauthorized Trip to Saudi Arabia
Football superstar Lionel Messi, who joined Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) from Barcelona two years ago, is reportedly facing disciplinary action from the club after taking an unauthorized trip to Saudi Arabia. According to French media outlets L’Equipe and RMC Sport, PSG has denied Messi’s request to make the trip, which was related to his commercial contract to promote tourism in the country. The reports suggest that Messi could face a two-week suspension, which could potentially lead to him missing PSG’s next two games.
PSG is currently facing a crucial moment as there is a potential suspension looming over them, coinciding with their efforts to secure Messi's contract extension for the upcoming season. The club had reportedly been in talks with the Argentine star over a new deal, but negotiations have reportedly
stalled in recent weeks. The reported suspension could further complicate matters, as PSG fans are likely to be concerned about the future of their star player.
The reports of Messi’s trip to Saudi Arabia came after PSG suffered a surprise 3-1 loss to Lorient in Ligue 1 on Sunday. Messi played the full game and then travelled to Saudi Arabia to fulfill his contractual obligations. However, he missed a training session scheduled for Monday after the weekend defeat and also did not participate in training on Tuesday.
It remains to be seen how PSG will react to Messi’s reported breach of club protocol. A source with knowledge of the matter told the Associated Press that the club would not allow Messi to train or play during his suspension, and he would

also not receive any pay. The source also indicated that the suspension would likely last for two weeks.
Messi’s potential suspension is a blow for PSG, who are currently leading the French league with a five-point lead over Marseille with five games left in the season. The club had hoped that the Argentine star would play a crucial role in their bid to win the league title and the Champions League. PSG has been eliminated in the round of 16 in consecutive seasons, and Messi was seen as a key addition to their squad in their quest for European success.
The situation is also likely to raise questions about Messi’s future at the club. The Argentine star will turn 36 in June, and there has been speculation about where he would
play next, especially after reports that contract talks with PSG had broken down. Some PSG fans have even booed Messi amid the team’s inconsistent campaign, which is likely to put more pressure on the club to resolve the situation quickly.
In conclusion, Lionel Messi’s reported breach of club protocol and potential suspension is a major issue for Paris Saint-Germain. The club had hoped to extend Messi’s contract beyond this season, and the reports of the suspension could further complicate negotiations. The situation is also likely to raise questions about Messi’s future at the club and his potential next destination. PSG fans will be hoping that the issue can be resolved quickly and that Messi can return to the team to help them secure the French league title and the Champions League.
