Paris Saint-Germain football club’s superstar Lionel Messi has issued a public apology to his teammates and the club management for taking an unauthorized trip to Saudi Arabia. The Argentine forward was suspended by PSG for two weeks, and his pay will reportedly be docked during this time.
In a video clip posted on his Instagram story, Messi expressed remorse and acknowledged his mistake, stating that he had thought the team would have a day off after their previous match, as they had in previous weeks. Messi explained that he had organized the trip to Saudi Arabia, but had already cancelled it once before and could not do so again.
The 34-year-old footballer expressed his regret for his actions and said that he was waiting to hear what the club wants to do with him. Messi’s apology has been welcomed by PSG fans and the football community at large, with many praising his humility and accountability in the face of the situation.
The incident has raised concerns among the PSG management about their star player’s commitment to the team and his professionalism. The club has been working to build a strong team around Messi, who joined them in August 2021 after spending his entire professional career at FC Barcelona.
