Lionel Messi resumes training with Paris Saint-Germain following suspension
Following his suspension for an unauthorized trip to Saudi Arabia, Lionel Messi has resumed training with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). The Ligue 1 club shared a photo on Twitter showing the World Cup winner in training attire, accompanied by the message, “Leo Messi back in training this Monday morning.”
Messi, who serves as an ambassador for the Saudi Tourism Authority, was photographed in Riyadh the day after PSG suffered an unexpected defeat against Lorient. In an Instagram video, he explained that he had to make the trip due to contractual obligations, despite previously canceling it, and had mistakenly assumed he had a day off.
As a result of his actions, PSG suspended Messi for two weeks, leading to his absence in their 3-1 victory against Troyes on Sunday. However, following an apology to PSG and his teammates in a video released on Friday, Messi has now returned to training. PSG’s upcoming match is scheduled for Saturday, where they will face Ajaccio at home.
