Messi has returned to training with PSG, despite being suspended by the club for taking an unauthorised trip to Saudi Arabia.
The Argentine superstar was suspended for two weeks, but is now back training with the team.
On Monday, the club tweeted, “Leo Messi back in training this Monday morning,” suggesting that the suspension may have been lifted.
Messi on Friday issued an apology to his PSG teammates, saying “I thought we were going to have a day off after the game as always. I had this trip organized and I couldn’t cancel it. I had already cancelled it before…”
He added, “I apologize to my teammates and I’m waiting for what the club wants to do with me.”
Meanwhile, PSG manager Christophe Galtier has distanced himself from Messi’s suspension, stating that he had “nothing to do with” the decision.
He also condemned fan protests outside players’ homes, saying, “Leo’s suspension has added to poor performances, we can’t hide behind that.
PSG won 3-1 at Troyes on Sunday to edge closer to the French title.
