Messi trained and is available to play against Manchester City

Lionel Messi returned to training on Monday with the Paris Saint Germain squad after overcoming the injury to his left knee and is at the disposal of DT Mauricio Pochettino for Tuesday’s game against Manchester City for the European Champions League.

The Argentine star participated as normal in the practice prior to the clash against Josep “Pep” Guardiola’s City and Pochettino’s decision is awaited to see if he will play from the start or the substitute bench will go. “Messi is fine, he can play tomorrow,” the Argentine coach anticipated at the press conference, although he did not clarify whether he will do so from the start. “I never give the team before the Champions League matches. Anyone is free to think who is going to play,” said the coach, who also clarified that Italian Marco Verratti also overcame the annoyance he was dragging and will be available

The captain of the Argentine national team had worked on Sunday with the players who did not participate in Saturday’s game against Montpellier but on Monday morning he was seen with Neymar, Kylian Mbappé, Mauro Icardi, Leandro Paredes, Keylor Navas, Verratti and Ángel Di Maria in the “crazy” of the warm-up.

The six times best player in the world missed the games against Metz (2-1) and Montpellier (2-0) due to the bone contusion in his left knee that he suffered last Sunday, September 19, in the match against Olympique Lyon, in the one who was replaced at 75 minutes.

If there are no inconveniences, the “30” will be in the match of the second date of group A of the Champions League against Manchester City that will be played on Tuesday at 16 in the Parc des Princes.
