Lionel Messi misses another PSG match, Covid says he is slowly recovering

Lionel Messi will miss one more game for Paris Saint-Germain subsequent to recognizing that his recuperation from COVID-19 has been surprisingly sluggish. The Argentina forward will not be accessible for Saturday’s game against Brest at Parc des Princes, PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino said Friday. The 34-year-old Messi missed PSG’s 1-1 draw at Lyon last Sunday when the French league got back from its winter break. Messi had become contaminated while home in Argentina. He later tested negative and got back to Paris.

“I have been training these days to get back to 100%,” he wrote on Instagram.

Messi said in a social media post on Thursday that “it has taken me more time than I had expected to get better” but that he’s “almost recovered” and eager to get back on the field.

“There are some very exciting challenges ahead this year and I hope that we can all see one another again very soon.”

After this weekend, league-leader PSG hosts Reims on Jan. 23 before the international break.

Pochettino said Messi remains under the supervision of the team’s medical staff. The club said Friday that Messi “will gradually rejoin the squad next week.”

Neymar remains out because of an ankle injury he picked up in late November and wasn’t included in the Brazil squad announced Thursday for World Cup qualifying.

Argentina and Brazil have already qualified for the World Cup.
