Paris Saint-Germain footballer Lionel Messi will miss the next match in the French League 1 against Lorien due to a minor injury.
“Messi has a problem with inflammation of the Achilles tendon. The injury is of a minor nature and it is expected that he will return to training next Sunday,” the French champions said in a statement.
Some media report that it is not an injury at all, but purely a precaution for Argentina’s best player before the World Cup in Qatar.
The Argentine recently announced that the World Cup in Qatar will be the last in his career.
The team from Paris will visit Lorient tomorrow from 1 pm in the 14th round of League 1.
