Barcelona hopeful of Messi’s return ahead of league resumption
The Spanish giant Barcelona is confident that their inspiring skipper will soon return to full training along with his team-mates and be ready for the league resumption.
The Argentine picked up an adductor injury during training and has been a major absentee in Quique Setien’s side training session.
The club confirmed on Friday that the number 10 is nursing a thigh complaint and the report suggest that he won’t be out for longer period. The club also stated that their skipper has been training in isolation, doing specific exercises to avoid unnecessary risks.
In an official statement on training, the official website of FC Barcelona stated:
“Quique Setién and his team were back out on the training ground this Friday after taking the previous day off.”
“Barça captain Leo Messi has a minor right quadriceps injury and trained in isolation, doing specific exercises to avoid unnecessary risks with just eight days remaining before Barça finally get back to playing matches. He should be able to rejoin his team-mates in a few days’ time.”
“All of the available players were at the Ciutat Esportiva, where they were joined by Jorge Cuenca and Kike Saverio as well as the other B team players who have been working out with the first team over the last few days: Iñaki Peña, R. Araujo, Chumi, Monchu, Riqui Puig, Collado and Ansu Fati. The latter, like Messi, worked out individually this morning.”
“For tomorrow’s Saturday session the players will train again, but unusually, this session is going to be on the pitch in the Camp Nou as Setién works to get his players ready for the return to football, but with games being played behind closed doors.”
