The Medical Services have confirmed that although the player took a bang in the right leg, there is nothing serious to worry about
Medical tests on striker Lionel Messi this Monday morning have revealed great news. It turns out that the Argentinian has not got a hamstring injury and has just taken a bit of a knock. It is uncertain whether or not he will be available for future matches, but there is nothing major to worry about.
Messi was substituted by Arda Turan at half-time against Athletic Bilbao on Sunday, after parading his fifth Ballon d’Or trophy to the fans before the match and scoring the penalty that opened the scoring in a 6-0 win.
