Messi says 'sorry' for Saudi trip after being suspended by PSG

Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi has apologised for his 'unauthorised' trip to Saudi Arabia that has led to him being suspended by the French club.

Messi admitted in an apology video on social media that he "thought he had the day off" after Sunday's 3-1 home Ligue 1 defeat to Lorient and is now "waiting to hear" from the club over his future.

He said: "First of all, I want to apologise to my team-mates and the club. Honestly, I thought we were going to have a day off after the game like we did in previous weeks

"I had this trip organised, which I had cancelled already. I could not cancel it again. I repeat, I want to say sorry for what I did. I am waiting to hear what the club want to do with me."

Following his suspension, it was revealed on Wednesday that Messi will leave PSG at the end of the season, with the French champions not planning to offer the forward a new contract.
