Messi, who was disciplined by his team Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) for going to Saudi Arabia, expressed his apology.
On the 6th (Korean time), Messi apologized for the controversial trip to Saudi Arabia through his SNS. After playing the 2022-23 season French Ligue 1 home game against Lorient on the 1st, Messi moved to Saudi Arabia to film an advertisement for the Saudi Arabia Tourism Board and was absent from PSG’s training without permission. PSG decided to ban Messi from the game for two weeks.
“I apologize for my behavior. I am waiting for a decision from the club. I think there will be a rest day after the game like last week. I couldn’t cancel this time,” he said.
PSG coach Galtier said, “Messi’s punishment will make the team’s performance worse. It is a fact that cannot be hidden. The club’s punishment has nothing to do with me. I have been notified of the club’s decision.” 안전놀이터

Messi’s contract with PSG expires at the end of this season. The possibility of renewing PSG and Messi’s contract is low. Messi is receiving attention for his future, including his return to Barcelona.
