L’Équipe report this afternoon that Lionel Messi sustained a knock after being kneed during last night’s 2-1 win over Lyon at the Parc des Princes. Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino had taken his compatriot off midway through the second half for Achraf Hakimi, in a move that drew a grimace from the six-time Ballon d’Or winner.
Pochettino had made the change with PSG’s crowded fixture list in mind, and this morning the former Barcelona man arrived in training hobbling, spending the whole day in the treatment room.
The club will assess the forward’s medical condition tomorrow, with Messi having sustained the issue on his left knee – the same area on which he was injured on Argentina duty in September against Venezuela, in a tackle that saw his opponent red carded.
