Messi back in training with PSG after club lifts suspension

Lionel Messi has returned to training with his Paris Saint-Germain teammates after the club lifted his suspension. The French team announced Messi’s return on its website, posting a picture of the former Barcelona player running with a ball at the club’s training ground. PSG did not officially say whether Messi’s disciplinary punishment had been revoked, but a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press that the Argentina star resumed his training after the suspension was lifted. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the matter. The move suggests that the World Cup winner will be available for PSG’s next league game against Ajaccio on Saturday, barring an injury.
