French football journalist, Daniel Riolo has criticized Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi for travelling to Saudi Arabia – a day after his team suffered a 3-1 defeat to Lorient in Ligue 1.
Messi had on Monday travelled to Saudi Arabia to do his duties as the travelling brand ambassador of the country.
However, Messi’s action left Riolo infuriated.
“The day after another dismal performance, Messi is in Saudi Arabia on promotion,” Riolo wrote on Twitter.
“Back on Wednesday for everyone. Is there not a single day when something goes wrong at PSG?”
Messi did not have a very bright performance during the clash against Lorient, as he registered no shots on target and completed only three dribbles against the opponent on Sunday.
