Everyone wondered when the Argentine player would rejoin the squad, as the Qatar 2022 World Cup ended several weeks ago, and he has yet to be seen in Paris. Galtier, however, clarified the reason why he has yet to rejoin.
The team decided that after the World Cup, Messi could be allowed a time of absence during these first days of vacation and still enjoy the celebration and euphoria.
The player returned to training with the club on January 1, so until the New Year, he still enjoyed the vacations and some well-earned family time.
The coaching staff thought it was the best thing to do because you don’t win a World Cup every day, and also, after such a display of great effort, they thought he deserved to rest.
Gaultier wanted to avoid talking about the World Cup, the last great football event, or the celebrations of the Argentinians. He did not want to stir controversy and focused on answering questions concerning his team, PSG.
He has cleared up the most concerning matter, as PSG have already played some league games without Messi, and most fans want to see one of their top-tier stars back on the pitch.
Most likely, they will have to wait until the match against Châteauroux, a French Cup match played on January 6.
The next match of the French club is on January 1, so Messi will not be called up for that match, but they hope he will be called up for the next one.

Relationship between Messi and Mbappé at PSG
Another question Gaultier was asked about was the relationship between the two stars, Messi and Mbappé.
Well, for the French player to lose the World Cup final after scoring three goals and putting on a performance to remember was a brutal affair.
However, he kept his composure and knew how to accept the loss with style and elegance, so much so that he did not take off his medal, posed for photos, and shook hands with his teammate Messi.
This gesture is what the PSG coach used to calm the waters and say that the two get along well regardless of whatever happened in the match.
Once Mbappé returned to training, Gaultier highlighted how Kylian congratulated the Argentinian coach and his teammate Leo Messi on becoming world champions. For the coach of the Parisian team, it shows that the relationship is cordial and respectful.
He boasted about his player on how his attitude was exemplary. On the contrary, when asked about the Argentinian goalkeeper’s contrarian attitude, Dibu said that he refused to comment further on it and that it was up to the Argentinians to celebrate.
The Argentinian goalkeeper displayed an ugly gesture towards the French fans after receiving the award for the best goalkeeper of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, an attitude opposite to that of Mbappé, who showed excellent sportsmanship and friendship.
Neymar and his injury doubt after the World Cup
At the World Cup, the third striker of PSG, Neymar, appeared to have suffered an injury in one of the matches.
The Brazilian was left with a damaged ankle after a tackle play, although he then played two more games before Brazil lost to Croatia in the quarterfinals.
PSG coach does not doubt that his player is ready and that during these 12 days of vacation, he has been treated by his doctors.
Therefore, the three will play again at PSG. It has happened before and will continue after winning the World Cup.
Everyone believes in an outright victory whenever Leo Messi takes the field alongside his teammates Neymar and Mbappé. Thus, it is always an excellent option to make your picks.
Even those not used to turning to the reviews on their team. Thus, you can know which markets you can play with and make a profit.
In addition, you must know each bookmaker’s terms and conditions. At the same time, it is good to know about them and avoid any scam the user may encounter.
It remains to be seen how the dynamics will be with the three stars on the field. But they will be talking about it again and showing off their talent on the field. There may be some friction, but they are still teammates and professionals when they step on the field.
