It seems likely that Lionel Messi’s time at Paris Saint-Germain is coming to an end following his two-week suspension. This disciplinary action has drawn a line in the sand. Now it appears that Messi’s relationship with the club may be in the process of ruin this summer.

Messi’s trip to Saudi Arabia was not too surprising. But the fact that he did not obtain permission from PSG’s Qatari owners before embarking on the trip was a violation of the club’s rules. As a result, he is on a two-week suspension from the club. This incident has further strained the relationship between Messi and PSG. Meanwhile, it is widely believed that he will not be staying at the club beyond the end of his contract. The events of the past week have accelerated the conclusion that many had predicted. It seems that a line has been drawn, with relationships expected to be severed this summer.

Messi’s failure to attend the training session without permission was a breach of club rules, which led to his suspension. The decision to suspend him indicates that the club is taking a firm stance on discipline and showing that no player is above the rules.

It also highlights the strained relationship between PSG and Messi. Despite his status as one of the greatest footballers of all time, the Argentine has struggled to fit in with the team since joining last summer. He has often looked isolated and frustrated on the pitch, and his absence from training has only worsened the situation.

With his contract set to expire at the end of the season, it seems increasingly likely that Messi will be leaving PSG this summer. The two-week suspension may well be the final nail in the coffin for his time in the French capital.

What made PSG to suspend Messi?

According to L’Equipe, Messi requested to travel to Saudi Arabia twice before. However, after the defeat against Lorient, the training schedule changed, and Messi’s plans conflicted with the new schedule. Despite being informed that he couldn’t travel, Messi still went ahead with his trip, resulting in his suspension.

PSG’s decision to suspend Messi was reportedly on the club’s view that his decision to travel to Saudi Arabia without approval was disrespectful to the institution. The move was a statement on club discipline and tolerance. Thus, underscoring the notion that attending someone else’s promotional event on a workday was not acceptable. PSG wanted to make it clear that no one was above the club, regardless of the international reaction.

Indeed, making a stand is an important step towards establishing a culture of discipline and accountability within the club. This is essential for long-term success. PSG must show that they are committing to uphold their values and standards, and that no individual player is above the team. While the suspension of Messi may be seen as a harsh decision, it sends a clear message that the club is serious about maintaining its principles and ensuring that everyone is held accountable for their actions. This could be a positive step towards building a culture of success that fans can support and believe in.
