Bercelona captain Leo Messi is out of action less than two weeks ahead of the opening of La-Liga season after injuring his right calf in training on Monday.
“I wanted to get started and unfortunately I had a mishap during the first training session which will keep me out of action for a while” posted in Instagram by Messi
“Test carried out has diagnosed a grade 1 calf strain,” the Spanish Champions said in a statement, an injury that can require around two weeks of recuperation.
“Messi will remain in Barcelona and will now not travel to USA for the club’s tour. His availability to come back to action will be dictated by his recovery from the injury.”
“I wanted to be in the team and with the people who will follow us in the US, this time it will not be possible but we will meet again soon I kiss u all.” Said Messi.
The club will open the new La Liga campaign at Athletic Bibao on August 16.
