Paris Saint-Germain’s (PSG) star forward player Lionel Messi is ruled out of his club’s Ligue 1 clash against Metz on Wednesday. The announcement was made by the PSG club itself. Messi had hit his left knee on his home debut match against Lyon on Sunday and was taken off the field in the 75th minute. The Argentine legend underwent an MRI scan on Tuesday and the PSG informed that the results showed signs of bone bruising.

Messi is still finding his first PSG goal after playing a handful of matches with his new club PSG. After being taken off by Paris Saint Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino in their victory game against Lyon 2-1, the Argentine legend did not seem to be happy and rejected to shake hands with his manager.

Further update on Messi will come on Thursday

With Messi being injured, there are some concerns over his recovery time and when will the star forward put his boots again to hit the field running. The MRI results show bruise signs on Messi’s knee and there will be a big update coming on the injury of the Argentine legend on Thursday after their match against Metz.

After their Ligue 1 match against Metz, Mauricio Pochettino’s side will host Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League match on September 28 at their home stadium- Parc des Princes. It will be crucial for PSG to have Lionel Messi back as quickly as many crucial encounters are already lined up.

PSG is at the top in Ligue 1

PSG are at the top of the Ligue 1 after winning all their 6 games in the 2021-22 season. PSG had a bad night in their opening match of UEFA Champions League as the Parc des Princes club was held for a draw against Club Brugge.
