Infected by Covid-19 during his end-of-year vacation in 2021 and suffering from a symptomatic form of the virus, Lionel Messi (34) will take his time to resume competition. The Team explains that the Argentinian international should continue his individual training, on the sidelines of the group, during the collective session on Tuesday. The sports daily adds without surprise that the club of the capital does not wish to take any risk for the Parisian n ° 30.
The objective of Mauricio Pochettino and his technical staff is to reintegrate Leo Messi into the rest of the group once he regains full possession of his means, which should happen by later this week. It now remains to be seen whether the six-time Ballon d’Or will have recovered enough to take part in the match against Stade de Reims on Sunday (8:45 p.m.), at the end of the 22nd day of Ligue 1.
