The departure of the Argentine star did not please the club’s board of directors, including president Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, the main sports media in France reported in recent hours. And the decision would be drastic.
According to RMC Sport, PSG has sanctioned Messi with two weeks of inactivity, a punishment that would take effect immediately as of today, arguing that a training session for the first team was scheduled on the day of the trip.
“Everything has been considered by the club for what is classified internally as a serious error,” said the aforementioned media.
With this decision, Messi would miss the next two games in Paris Saint Germain, against Troyes this Sunday, and against Ajaccio on Saturday, May 13.
