Why do injuries haunt Lionel Messi in Paris Saint-Germain more than Barcelona?

Paris Saint-Germain coach Mauricio Pochettino said on Friday that striker Lionel Messi will miss the team’s trip to face Bordeaux in the French Football League on Saturday due to injury, but he may participate with Argentina this month in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers in Qatar.

Saint-Germain said that Messi, 34, who joined from Barcelona in the last transfer period, is still recovering from pain in his “knee and hamstring”, and he also missed the 2-2 draw with Leipzig in the Champions League last Wednesday.

Messi will not participate with Saint-Germain

Pochettino told reporters, “Tomorrow he will not be available to play with the team. We will see if he can travel to play with his country. We hope that he will participate with Argentina and then return to us in full readiness.”

Argentina will move to Uruguay on November 12, before hosting Brazil 4 days later.

Argentina, in second place, is six points behind leaders Brazil.

Messi had a disappointing start to his career with Paris Saint-Germain, as he participated in only 8 matches in all competitions.

Few injuries with Barcelona

Although Messi had few injuries in Barcelona, ​​​​he has always been exposed to them since he came to Saint-Germain, which made him miss many matches, in addition to that he did not succeed with the Parisian team except against Manchester City in the Champions League.

And the fans of Saint-Germain are waiting to see Messi, who has always traveled and scored goals with Barcelona, ​​after he regains his full technical and physical fitness.

Saint-Germain leads the French Ligue 1 with 31 points from 12 matches, 8 points ahead of second-placed Nice.
