| 3 months ago

Argentine footballer Lionel Messi is back in training after breaking his arm bone on 20th October. His Club Barcelona broke the news on Twitter while posting a picture of Messi titled, “Leo #Messi returns to training.”

Messi got injured in the match against Sevilla which they won 4-2 on Saturday. Apparently, the injury saw him out of action for the club for several weeks.

During the period, Messi missed the games against Inter and Real Madrid on Thursday and Sunday respectively. However, the 31-year-old Argentine wasn’t missed too much as Barcelona won both the games comfortably.

While Barcelona defeated Inter Milan on Thursday 2-0 (Rafael Alcantara 32’, Jordi Alba 83’), the former outclassed rival Real Madrid (5-1), courtesy brilliance from Luis Saurez, Coutinho and Arturo Vidal.

Messi’s appearance, however, in the next league game at Roya Vallecano is still uncertain. Coach Ernesto Valverde will have the final word regarding his fitness before the game on Saturday.

 

The goal-scoring machine has bagged 12 goals in last 12 appearances for the club.
