The best player in the world trained alone on Saturday at the Camp Nou after missing two consecutive sessions due to a “slight muscle contraction” in the right thigh as his club announced Friday, but the champion of the past two seasons confirmed on Monday that the Argentine international joined the rest of the team in the week of the return of the Spanish league matches .

Messi had a special training on Friday in order to avoid the risks eight days before the resumption of the local league, which is resuming its activity Thursday behind closed doors, after the competition stopped since last March due to the spread of the new Corona virus “Covid-19”.

And it is certain that stopping since March will affect the players ’fitness and expose them to the injuries that have afflicted Messi since the beginning of the season, as he missed six weeks between August and September due to a calf injury, and then for a week in late September due to a problem with his left thigh.

However, the injury did not prevent the Argentine star who scored 24 goals in 31 games in all competitions, contributing to his team’s lead in the league standings, two points behind his rivals Real Madrid, and reaching the final price of the Champions League when the Catalan club tied with Napoli, Italy 1- 1 away from home, before the suspension of the competition because of “Covid-19”.
