Lionel Messi will be looking for his first minutes for his new club ahead of his return to the international fold next month.


It was a very good week for Lionel Messi

The former Barcelona striker could be in line for his PSG debut against the Reims in Ligue 1 this coming weekend, Pochettino says, as the Argentine closes for his first game for the club. The former Barcelona player brought down the curtain on Camp Nou’s brilliant career in severely injured circumstances earlier this year after the club’s inability to re-sign. According to his manager, the attacker, who spearheaded the influx of big talent at the Parc des Princes this summer, is fast approaching a girl’s match in his colors.

Mauricio Pochettino said it was a very good week for Leo after his side won 4-2 over Brest on Friday. The next week will be long, but if all goes well, they hope he can be in the squad and start competitively against the Reims. Mauricio also confirmed that the club will not stand in the way of Lionel Messi if he chooses to link with Argentina ahead of their 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers next month. According to Mauricio Pochettino, he has not yet spoken to the selectors, but they know that Mauricio was in favor of the selection and that they should help not only Argentina, but all those countries in which our players participate.


A little about the topic

The allure of playing under a fellow countryman is believed to have helped swing Lionel Messi towards Paris Saint-Germain after his departure from Barça, and the 34-year-old will hope to play in some capacity against the Reims. Having not played since he led Argentina to America’s Cup glory – his first big honor for his country – during the international offseason – he will hope to pick up minutes ahead of Venezuela and Bolivia.
