Messi apologizes for unauthorized Saudi trip, resulting in suspension

“I had this trip organised, which I had cancelled already. I could not cancel it again. I repeat, I want to say sorry for what I did. I am waiting to hear what the club want to do with me.”

After being suspended for two games and fined two weeks’ wages, Lionel Messi has apologized for his recent trip to Saudi Arabia, which was not authorized by his club Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). Messi had reportedly asked PSG for permission to travel on a personal promotional trip, which he had already postponed twice due to team defeats. However, his request was denied, and he went ahead with the trip, resulting in his suspension and fine.

In a statement, Messi expressed regret for his actions, explaining that he had already cancelled the trip once before and could not do so again. He also stated that he was waiting to hear what the club’s plans were for him moving forward.

In other news, it was announced on Wednesday that Messi will be leaving PSG at the end of the season, as the French champions have no plans to offer him a new contract.
