This is how the Saint-Germain coach commented on the decision to stop Messi, due to his travel to Saudi Arabia…


Several days ago, the Argentine world champion was suspended after traveling to Saudi Arabia without the approval of his administration. It is not yet clear how long Messi will be suspended. What did Galtier, the coach of the team, say about the move?

French Paris Saint-Germain coach Christophe Galtier preferred to be succinct, in his first comment on the issue of stopping Argentine star Lionel Messi because of his travel to Saudi Arabia without the club’s approval.

The coach chose his words carefully in a press conference on Friday, two days before Troyes came to the league. I comment on it.”

The Argentine world champion was suspended on Tuesday for several days after he traveled to Saudi Arabia, without the approval of his administration.

And while several media outlets indicated that he was suspended for two weeks, club sources did not confirm to Agence France-Presse the period, saying that the Argentine would be absent for “several days.”

Will Messi play again with Saint-Germain?

Messi missed training after losing to Lorient 1-3 on Sunday in the local league. The Golden Ball holder for the best player in the world was seen seven times in Saudi Arabia under a contract with the country’s tourism authority, where he regularly promotes him on his social networks.

This disciplinary measure comes at a crucial moment for Messi’s future in Paris Saint-Germain, as he is at the end of his contract with the French capital club.

The 35-year-old star scored 15 goals this season in the league, which is his second season with Paris Saint-Germain, after a rich career with Barcelona.

And whether Messi will play again with Saint-Germain, Galtier said, “We will see the moment Leo returns, we will see what will happen. Of course, there will be talks with everyone in the club, but also with the first concerned Leo.”

“unfair decision”

In Argentina, local newspapers described the decision as unfair, so Olé wrote: “Very cruel (…) because he is the best in the world, his behavior was exemplary throughout his career.”

In France, coach Antoine Kombouare criticized this behavior, saying that “we do not touch Messi, whatever he does.”

Groups of club fans expressed their dissatisfaction with the results, players and management on Wednesday, in front of Saint-Germain’s headquarters and the home of the currently injured Brazilian striker Neymar.
