Messi suspended by PSG over 'unauthorised' Saudi trip - reports

 PSG have reportedly suspended Lionel Messi for two weeks without pay after the World Cup winner's unauthorised absence from training to travel to Saudi Arabia.

The 35-year-old was pictured in Riyadh on Monday, with French outlet L'Equipe reporting he has been docked two weeks wages and will not train with the team during that time.

He would miss the upcoming Ligue 1 matches against Troyes and Ajaccio, but could then return for the match against Auxerre on May 21.

Messi is in the final months of a two-year deal with the Ligue 1 leaders, and last month Sky Sports News reported he wanted to witness their sporting plans for next season before committing to a new contract.
