Lionel Messi will join PSG again on Wednesday. The Argentine will receive a kind of tribute after being world champion in Qatar 2022.
Two players from the Parisian box, Kylian Mbappé and Achraf Hakimi, will not be in that reception. In France they have revealed the reason for their absence.

The decision comes from the coaching staff, since they want to rest Mbappé and Hakimi after the end of their World Cup participation, where they did not take vacations and returned to be against Racing Strasbourg on Wednesday, December 28, and against Lens, the January 1st.
The idea of Christophe Galtier, PSG coach, is that these vacations serve them to rest and not overload themselves physically for the next commitments.
They also report from France that this determination comes to avoid some kind of curiosity between Mbappé and Messi, since they were the finalists of the World Cup.

Kylian was always respectful with the Argentine captain and with the title achieved by the National Team in Qatar, but inside Paris they know that it hurt him a lot to lose that important game.
