Paris Saint-Germain has suspended Lionel Messi for two weeks after he took an unsanctioned trip to Saudi Arabia. The French club acted swiftly after the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner left for Saudi Arabia on Monday. PSG confirmed to French press AFP that they have suspended Messi for two weeks with immediate effect after he missed training on Monday. It means Messi will not play or train with the club for two weeks, while he has also had his pay suspended. After penning a contract worth £52million-a-year, it will mean that the former Barcelona star will miss out on £2m in wages. PSG chiefs were left dumbfounded when Messi failed to turn up to training on Monday, as were his teammates. However, according to Sky Sports, the club have yet to communicate their decision to the mercurial forward. The Argentine has a contractual obligation to travel to Saudi Arabia after becoming their tourism ambassador.
