The purpose of Lionel Messi, travelling to Saudi Arabia with Paris Saint-Germain has been made public.
The Argentine stirred some controversy when he arrived in Saudi Arabia the day after PSG’s humiliating 3-1 loss to Lorient in Ligue 1 on Sunday.
Messi’s trip might be a requirement of his deal with the Saudi Arabian government to serve as the nation’s tourist ambassador.
It was reported that the 2022 World Cup winner had signed a deal with them.
The former captain of Barcelona shocked his Instagram fans with a post promoting tourism to Saudi Arabia.
The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner has recently been extensively linked with a move to the Saudi Premier League (SPL), so the timing of his statement piqued interest.
Messi wrote: “Who imagined Saudi Arabia has so much green? ” in his Instagram post’s caption. I enjoy discovering its unforeseen surprises whenever I can.
In the meantime, Messi and his family were welcomed to Saudi Arabia for a vacation by Ahmed Al-Khateeb, the country’s minister of tourism.
“I am pleased to welcome Saudi Tourism Ambassador Lionel Messi and his family on his second holiday in Saudi Arabia,” Al-Khateeb posted on Twitter. We are pleased to extend to you all a genuine Saudi welcome by using the hashtag “#WelcomeMessi.”
