The Argentine star will be absent Lionel Messi About the upcoming match for his new team, Paris Saint-Germain, due to suffering from a bone bruise in the left knee, and therefore he was excluded from the list of the team that will face Metz in the French League.
The 34-year-old underwent an MRI scan this morning, which revealed the injury, and he will return to undergo a new examination within 48 hours to determine the date of his return to the stadiums.
Messi has not yet scored any goal in the PSG shirt, which he moved to this summer from Barcelona after 17 seasons with his first team, during which he was crowned with all possible titles, including a historic six in 2009 and became his historical scorer.
Messi was replaced 15 minutes before the end of the last Paris match against Lyon in the league at the Parc des Princes. At that time, Messi showed his surprise at the change and did not shake hands with his coach and compatriot Mauricio Pochettino, as a sign of his displeasure.
Although the coach did not reveal in the press conference the reasons for replacing Messi, the club later leaked that he wanted to keep him after he was subjected to a strong foot interference during the match.
Messi left the field limping slightly, and did not train with the rest of his teammates the next day, according to the sports newspaper L’Equipe.
