PSG: Lionel Messi resumed training with Argentina

Lionel Messi kicked off a ball. The PSG star, who missed Paris’ last two games in Leipzig in the Champions League and then in Ligue 1 against Bordeaux due to muscle discomfort and pain in his left knee, took part in training on Tuesday of the Argentina team. The 34-year-old striker participated in several workshops with the rest of his partners, before working separately with Leandro Paredes, the other Parisian injured but summoned by national coach Lionel Scaloni.

According to TyC Sports, the latter is counting on the six-fold Golden Ball for Argentina’s next two matches, qualifying for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Lionel Messi should start the match against Uruguay on Saturday at midnight in Montevideo, before playing the entire shock against Brazil on Wednesday at 12:30 am (French time). Paredes for his part should miss the meeting against the Uruguayans, but should be on the game against the Seleção.

The two men are at the heart of a conflict between PSG and the Argentine selection. PSG are not angry at not having had a say in the decision to line up two players in the return phase, which the texts allow Argentina. “We do not agree to let go for selection a player who, for us, is not in physical condition or who is in the rehabilitation phase, explained the sporting director of the club of the capital, Leonardo, to the Parisian. This is not logical, and this type of situation deserves that we define a real settlement with Fifa. “

If Lionel Messi has only missed the last two games of PSG, Leandro Paredes has not played since October 15. The midfielder was injured in a match with his selection, against Peru.
