Messi apologizes to PSG for unapproved Saudi Arabia trip

Paris: Lionel Messi apologized to Paris Saint-Germain and his teammates on Friday for making an unauthorized trip to Saudi Arabia that resulted in his suspension being overturned. Messi posted a short video on Instagram to apologize and chalk up the controversy to a scheduling misunderstanding. He missed practice on Monday while he was on a promotional trip to Saudi Arabia, and a day later the French club announced they had suspended the World Cup winner. Messi said he thought the team had an off Monday.
