The suspension will take place now after Messi’s trip to Saudi NOT authorized by the club as per @RMCsport.”

PSG manager Christophe Galtier has promised his players that they would have two days off, Monday and Tuesday, if they defeated Lorient on Sunday.

However, Galtier made it clear that a loss would see the players being called in for training on Monday.

Messi had requested to travel to the Arab gulf to honour his sponsorship deal as a Saudi ambassador.

Galtier and sporting director Luis Campos gave him approval to go only if PSG win or draw, but not a defeat.

However, following the 3-1 defeat to Lorient, Messi flew to Saudi Arabia without asking again for permission, meaning he could not attend training on Monday.
