Messi Returns Back To Barcelona Training Ground
On the Monday the 7th of September 2020 Messi was seen driving into the Ciutat Esportiva in Sant Joan Despi at just after 4:00 pm (1400 GMT), where he is expected to take part in training for the first time under new coach Ronald Koeman.
Messi earlier said on Friday in his explosive interview with Goal that he would continue to give his best for Barca, despite admitting defeat in his bid to depart for free.
The 33-year-old Argentinian superstar maintained he tried to go because he “wanted to live his last years of football happily” while also blaming the club’s president Josep Maria Bartomeu for “breaking his word” and forcing him to stay.
The return of Barcelona’s embitterred captain and greatest ever player may not be an easy one, particularly given some of his closest team-mates are likely to be absent.
Koeman also said in his first press conference that he “only wanted players who want to be here and to give everything”.
Messi could feature in Barcelona’s friendly against Gimnastic Tarragona on Saturday 13th,September if he passes his Coronavirus test and rejoins training without any issues.
