Messi back in training after ban

Messi back training with PSG Messi back training with PSG

Argentine and PSG forward, Lionel Messi is back to training after he was suspended by the club.

The forward was suspended for missing training to travel to Saudi Arabia without the club's permission.

PSG had punished him by banning him for two weeks and taking his wages off of him for this time, according to media such as 'L'Equipe' and 'RMC'. Despite that, the club never made that information public.

Everything changes after the 'Albiceleste' captain posted a video apologizing for going to Saudi Arabia, arch-rivals of Qatar (who own the club), and he put himself at PSG's mercy.

"I'd like to apologize to my teammates and I'm awaiting what the club sees fit", Messi said in a video posted online.

Now photos of him training have emerged on social media.

Messi could be available for Galtier for this weekend's game against Ajaccio, where they could consolidate their lead at the top of Ligue 1, depending on the result in the Lens result.
