Christophe Galtier, the manager of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), has remained tight-lipped about Lionel Messi’s recent suspension. The cause of suspension was an unauthorised trip to Saudi Arabia. During a press conference, before the next PSG match, Galtier was asked about Messi’s two-week suspension. But Galtier refused to give his opinion. Stating that the decision was made by the club management and therefore, he had taken the responsibility not to comment on it.

However, when asked about Messi’s return to the squad after his suspension, Galtier was equally elusive, saying that discussions would take place with the entire club and Messi, who is the most important person in the situation.
PSG will be travelling to Troyes on Sunday for their next match. Christophe Galtier has called on his team to bounce back from their defeat last week. The upcoming game is crucial for PSG. As their lead could be cut down to just two points by then. Depending on the results of their closest challengers for the title in Lens and Marseille.
It should be noted that there are different sides to the story regarding Messi’s suspension. According to Fabrizio Romano, a reliable source, Messi changed his plans for his Saudi Arabia trip twice to respect PSG’s schedule in the last few months. He also communicated his plans to the club. But when he received communication from PSG, he was not able to change his plans as he was already travelling.
On the other hand, PSG sources confirm that Messi did not inform Galtier or the club president of his plans to leave for Saudi Arabia, and the suspension was imposed after his return.
The situation has raised questions about the relationship between Messi and PSG. With rumors circulating that the Argentine was already not convinced about the project since February. When PSG made a proposal.
As the season draws to a close, it remains to be seen what the future holds for Messi at PSG. But one thing is for sure – the situation has added an extra layer of drama to the team’s bid for the Ligue 1 title.
