Injury rules Messi out of Bordeaux

Paris St Germain coach Mauricio Pochettino said on Friday that striker Lionel Messi will miss the team’s trip to face Bordeaux in Ligue 1 on Saturday due to injury, but he may participate with Argentina in this month’s World Cup qualifiers.

The club said the 34-year-old Messi, who joined from Barcelona in the last transfer window, is still recovering from pain in his “knee and hamstring” and he also missed the 2-2 draw with RB Leipzig in the Champions League last Wednesday. .

Pochettino told reporters, “Tomorrow he will not be available to play with the team. We will see if he can travel to play for his country. We hope to participate with Argentina and then return to us in full readiness.”

Argentina will face Uruguay on November 12, before hosting Brazil four days later. Argentina, in second place, is six points behind leaders Brazil.

Messi had a disappointing start to his career with Paris Saint-Germain, as he participated in only eight matches in all competitions.

Saint-Germain leads the French Ligue 1 with 31 points from 12 matches, eight points ahead of second-placed Nice.
