The absence of Barcelonas Argentine captain, Lionel Messi, from his team’s training exercise on Wednesday evening, raised concerns about his health days before the resumption of the Spanish League after a long pause due to the Corona pandemic.
The rumor that Messi was infected with the “Covid-19” virus was supported after the club announced the injury of 5 team players earlier.
The Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo denied any talk of an Argentinian injury.
She confirmed that Messi trained alone in the gym, and assured the fans that he was ready to complete the season without problems.
The TV3 television network indicated that Messi is suffering from problems in the upper thigh muscle, which made his participation against Mallorca on the 13th of this month within the 28th round of the “La Liga” questionable.
As for the newspaper “AS”, I mentioned that Messi took an individual action to strengthen the muscles of the right calf, noting that he had been out of action for a month and a half at the beginning of the current season, due to his injury in this place.
But a source inside the club made it clear that Barcas top scorer and LaLiga do not complain of any injury, confirming his readiness for the first game after the return of the season.
Barcelona coach Kiki Seten decided to give his players a day’s rest on Thursday and return to training on Friday.
Barcelona, the defending champions, are two points behind the rivals Real Madrid, so they will visit 18th-ranked Mallorca on the 13th of this month.
