Former Argentina fotball player Carlos Tevez has slammed PSG’s treatment over Lionel Messi.

The World Cup winner was recently suspended for two weeks by his club Paris Saint-Germain after an unauthorised trip to Saudi Arabia.

The superstar was also fined in the process and is unlikely to sign a new contract with the French club.

Messi has since apologise to the club and fans

His former teammate Carlos Tevez said PSG should be the one apologising to Messi.

.”Messi makes us all humble. If you told me, being world champion, that I had to go and apologise for going on a trip when I had a day free, I would go back to Rosario and stay there drinking,” he told TyC Sports.

“You’d have to apologise to me, but Messi, the truth is, he puts the club first. And I think that, in that case, you have to take your hat off to him. Later we can say thousands of things about a club that did not take care of him from the first moment he arrived, because that’s how it is,” Tevez added.

The 39-year-old former Manchester United forward mention that PSG were just a mid-table team 15 years ago.

“It will be because of the World Cup or something else, but you can’t treat a player like that who has led PSG to know him. I played against PSG when I was at United and they were in the middle of the table. The same as City when I signed, we had four showers and we changed in a container,” Tevez added.
