Argentina star Lionel Messi posted an apology video on his Instagram page and explained why he silently went to Saudi Arabia.
In the past few days, world football is quite hot with the story of “escaping the team” from PSG to go to Saudi Arabia. Specifically, Messi and his wife and children flew to Saudi Arabia after PSG’s 1-3 defeat to Lorient at Parc des Princes in round 33 of the French Championship.
PSG did not agree to let Messi go to . So the trip of the Messi family made the PSG leadership angry and immediately issued an internal penalty. They decided to suspend Messi for 2 matches and from here there were rumors that the Argentine star would leave.
That also affected Messi’s image. Therefore, Messi decided to show his apology with a video posted on Instagram.
I really think we will have a day off after the game as was the case in previous weeks. I simply wanted a trip to Saudi Arabia that I had previously canceled. Once again I want to say sorry for what I did. I am here and will wait for what the club decides.”
In this season, Messi is playing quite well with PSG with 20 goals in 37 appearances in all competitions. Currently, PSG is temporarily leading the Ligue 1 rankings with 75 points, 5 points more than Marseille.
