What this article is about:
Lionel Messi is an Argentine professional footballer who plays for French club Paris Saint-Germain and the Argentina national team. He is considered one of the best players in the world and is widely regarded as one of the greatest of all time. Messi has won numerous awards and honours throughout his career and he has established himself as one of the most marketable sports stars in the world.
The Unauthorised Trip
On Monday last week, Messi was expected at training with Paris Saint-Germain but he was absent without permission. Reports soon emerged that the 33-year-old had travelled to Saudi Arabia without the club’s permission. The trip was unauthorised and his presence with the team was not approved by the club.
PSG’s Response and Messi’s Apology
Paris Saint-Germain were not pleased with Messi’s actions and they issued a statement regarding the incident. The club said that they understood Messi’s commitment to his family but that his absence must not be repeated. Messi then issued an apology and said that he was deeply sorry for his actions. He said that he would not let anyone down again and that he was committed to the team.
Despite Messi’s apology, he was dropped from Paris Saint-Germain’s squad to face Troyes on Sunday. This incident highlights the importance of respecting club rules and regulations and of not taking unauthorised trips without the permission of the club. It also serves as a warning for players to always act professionally and to respect the authority of their clubs.
