Barcelona fans have surely been disappointed by the latest news about their preferred players, Lionel Messi, who has joined the Argentinian team for its first Copa América game against Uruguay, but he won’t set foot on the field in the game against Venezuela, as he is sidelined due to an injured left hamstring. The injury has been noted before his game against Uruguay, but this didn’t stop the player from participating in the game for his home country. After the game, though, the medical team has sidelined him indefinitely.

Sidelined indefinitely

“Tests conducted today on first team player Leo Messi have confirmed that the discomfort in his left adductor muscle persists,” the announcement issued by Barca reads. “It’s advised he lowers the burden of training in the coming days and the evolution of the injury will mark his availability to return to action.”

The “indefinite” part should not scare you – the doctors said that it was too early to think of a timeline before seeing how Messi’s injury evolves. What’s sure, though, that Leo will spend some time resting instead of playing. He will, at least, have some time to try the Football Star slot machine at www.vegaspalms.com.

Messi is trusting

In a post published on Facebook, Leo Messi was quick to reassure his fans that he is not in such a grave condition. “Everything is fine, I have to slow things down as I recover with physio, but it’s nothing to worry about”, Messi reassured his fans in a Facebook update this week. “Thanks to you all for your support.”

Messi’s missing from Barca – and from Argentina’s national team – is bad news, that’s for sure, but not all news are bad. The good news is that Andres Iniesta, who was sidelined for weeks due to an injury suffered during a game in the Spanish Super Cup, is recovering from his injury, and might be back in the game soon. Speaking to Spanish sports publication Cadena SER, the player was eager to reassure his fans that he is recovering better day by day.
