Lionel Messi to miss PSG game against Brest as he recovers from Covid-19

Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino has indicated in his press conference ahead of tomorrow’s match against Brest that Lionel Messi is continuing his recovery from Covid-19.

“He’s doing better and better. He’s under the medical staff’s control, things are slowly improving and we hope he’ll soon be with the squad.”

His words transcribed in L’Équipe, the Argentine also explained that Neymar was also out as he continued his rehabilitation from a serious ankle injury at the end of last year.
