Messi is back – Football News



Lionel Messi returns to the courts: Pochettino confirmed that he will play against Reims even if it is for a few minutes. The striker has been out of the fields for a month and there was speculation about his physical performance.

Mauricio Pochettino confirmed it this Saturday: Leo Messi will be back this Sunday against Reims at 1:15 AM, in the match corresponding to Ligue 1.

The coach of Paris Saint-Germain spoke at a press conference and referred to the return of the Argentine star after a long vacation that led to physical complications and a set-up in training:

“Lionel trained well during the week. We are satisfied and happy with his evolution. He will be with the group tomorrow. It is always good news that players who have been inactive or not participating in the team can now be available to participate with the group and help the team”.

Pochettino needs the team to start starting all the games to oil the dynamics and get to February well, more precisely to the duel for the Champions League round of 16 against Real Madrid, although he was encouraged to joke with the return of Lionel Messi:

“Remember that he is the winner of seven Ballon d’Ors”.

Messi will return to activity after almost a month since his last official match with the Parisian team, which was on December 22 in a 1-1 draw against Lorient.

Since then, the player has enjoyed his vacation in Rosario, suffered from COVID and had to stay in Argentina until he tested negative.

Then he went through a longer convalescence than usual, which did not allow him to fully join training until this week, but he will have minutes tomorrow and it was speculated that he will be coming off the bench.

In that time, Messi missed three games: Vannes (Coupe de France 4-0), Lyon (Ligue 1 1-1) and Brest in the League (2-0).

Meanwhile his team had no problem maintaining the tournament lead with a 10 point lead over Olympique de Marseille, but we all want to see him on the field with the ball.

Lionel Messi will have almost two weeks between the end of January and the beginning of February, since he was not called up to be with the Argentine national team in agreement with PSG to get fit physically.

The Argentine scored only one goal in Ligue 1 and another 5 in the Champions League, while in PlayOn99 News we have told you about the poor semester he is experiencing around football.
