Messi trains on Barcelona’s day off
Lionel Messi turned up at Barcelona’s training complex on Thursday for a workout, even as the rest of the squad enjoyed a day of holiday.
The Argentine has been well cocooned since reporting back for training on Monday as he looks to get back to fitness, having to train individually at first due to LaLiga’s coronavirus protocols and then not completing the double sessions held later in the week.
Keen to make up for lost time, Messi has often been the first player to arrive at the training ground and this Thursday he was there alone.
However he was not alone on the field for long before Antoine Griezman, Sergio Busquets and Clement Lenglet came to keep the Argentine star company.
Friday will see the Catalan side train again as a group as they look ahead to Saturday’s friendly with Gimnastic de Tarragona, a game in which Messi could take part.
