L’Equipe’s Loïc Tanzi reported on Wednesday that PSG’s training schedule had not been changed before Sunday’s match against FC Lorient, noting that players knew there was a training on Monday.
Sur Messi, point important, le planning d’entraînement n’a pas été modifié. Il y avait entraînement lundi, avant le match face à Lorient. Il aurait été supprimé en cas de victoire. Donc Messi savait qu’il y avait cet entraînement au planning #PSG

However, Tanzi does say that Monday’s training session would have been canceled had the French giants defeated Lorient, which they didn’t. PSG fell 3-1 on Sunday at the Parc des Princes, so their practice remained on the schedule.
The French journalist concludes by saying that this was the plan for Monday’s training session. The suspension will cost the Argentine to miss two games, which isn’t ideal as PSG are fighting to hold onto their top spot in Ligue 1, with Olympique de Marseille five points back.
Furthermore, suspending Messi might be the final nail in the coffin of his time at PSG as various media members reveal that the Parisian side will attempt to move on once his contract expires in June.
After two seasons in the French capital, the 2022 FIFA World Cup winner’s time will likely be remembered as a disaster for both parties.
