Lionel Messi, recovering after contracting Covid during the Christmas holidays spent in Argentina, will not play against Brest tomorrow evening in the 21st matchday of Ligue 1. The unavailability of the Paris SG star was communicated by the coach Mauricio Pochettino.
This is the tenth league match that Messi will miss.
Between injuries and late returns from the national team, he has only been on the pitch 11 times since his arrival at PSG in August.
"Leo is better. He remains under the supervision of the medical staff. We hope he will be back with us as soon as possible," said the technician.
The former Barcelona tested positive for coronavirus during the end-of-year holidays, spent with his family in his hometown, Rosario.
"It took me longer than expected to heal, but I'm almost back on track and can't wait to get back," he wrote yesterday on Instagram.
