This should definitely put an end to the controversy over his exit against Lyon last Sunday, even if it did not seem to please him at the time. Lionel Messi was seriously injured during the match after a shock to the left knee, to such an extent that he will not be available for the trip of PSG to Metz on Wednesday (9 p.m.) counting for the 7th day of Ligue 1. The Argentinian striker has undergone exams, more precisely an MRI which confirmed “signs of bone contusion“, unveiled Tuesday the club of the capital in a statement on its wounded of the moment.
In retrospect, the precaution taken by Mauricio Pochettino on Sunday seems all the more relevant. “Sunday, we saw that Leo was touching his knee… he played very satisfactorily for 75 minutes, commented the Argentinian technician at a press conference on Tuesday. Then we made the decision to release it. I was not surprised at the comments because I know how it goes. The priority is the health of the players. We thought the best for him was to go out. The great champions are not happy when they leave the field.”

For the moment, no period of unavailability has been put forward by PSG concerning Messi: a point will be made in two days as to the evolution of the injury. It is therefore difficult to know if the Argentine star will be able to play against Montpellier on Saturday and especially against Manchester City next week for the second day of the Champions League.
In addition, the presence of Marco Verratti in the group for the trip to Moselle seems very uncertain. The Italian midfielder only resumed the race on Tuesday, Sergio Ramos still does not train with the group.
