Lionel Messi will be back in action for Paris Saint-Germain next Saturday against Ajaccio. The Argentine was under fire for an unauthorised trip to Saudi Arabia just after a lost match. Messi was suspended for two weeks by PSG, but this suspension has been lifted, his head coach Christophe Galtier revealed at the press conference. Messi may even look forward to a sport in the starting eleven.
The world champion flew to Saudi Arabia after the 1-3 loss against Lorient due to contractual obligations. That was against the wishes of Galtier and technical director Luis Campos, who had not given permission. After the lost match, the free Monday was withdrawn for a penalty training session, which Messi did not attend. He was subsequently suspended for two weeks and did not participate in the away game against Troyes (1-3 win).
However, Messi got his suspension lifted. He apologised shortly after the incident. 'I thought we would get a day off after the match, that's what normally happens. This trip had been planned for a very long time and I couldn't cancel it. I had already done that once before. I want to apologize to my teammates and I am waiting to see what the club will do with this situation,' Messi revealed.
The apology went over so well that already last Monday it was decided to lift the ?suspension. His coach stated at the press conference that Messi was very motivated for the upcoming match and will start in the starting lineup. 'Messi is going to start on Saturday. His attitude was perfect at training and he was working at a high level', Galtier said. The 35-year-old striker has scored 20 goals and provided 19 assists for PSG in 37 games this season.
