The piece of news came just a day after he was seen like feeling discomfort on his leg while playing for Leverkusen
No alarms have gone off but there's a little concern about Leo Messi condition. The Argentine footballer played 90 minutes against Bayer Lerverkusen but he was seen touching his left leg, like having some discomfort. He is not injured but he will have to be trodden carefully.
In addition, Messi missed this Thursday's training session. The club justified the absence "for personal reasons" and explained that striker had permission of Luis Enrique not to participate in the session.
In recent days, Luis Enrique has said that Messi is still not 100% physically and that they had to be cautious as he came back after overcoming a two-month injury. With Neymar's injury and Suárez having played a lot of minutes, the club want to be cautious to avoid further physical problems of the three most decisive players.
