Barcelona welcomed Lionel Messi back to training on Monday following his post-Copa America holiday, but the Argentine didn’t last long.
Lionel Messi has been welcomed back at Barcelona this Monday, after his holiday and Copa America. However, during his first training, he had unlikely suffered an injury.
As a matter of fact, his calf got injured in his right leg. With that being said, he will not be travelling with the rest of their squad on Monday afternoon. Barcelona is going to embark on a mini tour of the USA.
“Messi, who had returned from his summer break for training on Monday, withdrew from the session due to discomfort in his right leg,” a Barcelona statement read.
“Tests carried out have diagnosed a Grade One calf strain for the Argentine.
“Messi will remain in Barcelona and will now not travel to the USA for the club’s tour.
“His availability to come back to action will be dictated by his recovery from the injury.”
