Lionel Messi misses Barcelona training ahead of La Liga resumption

Lionel Messi of FC Barcelona sprints during a training session at Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper on May 22, 2020 in Barcelona, Spain. Spanish LaLiga clubs are back training in groups of up to 10 players following the LaLiga's 'Return to Training' protocols.

Lionel Messi missed training on Wednesday because he has an adductor injury which means he could miss Barcelona’s clash with Real Mallorca on June 13, according to reports.

The captain worked alone in the gym, rather than joining the group, and his absence was largely played down at the time.

TV3 are not quite as upbeat. They report Messi has an adductor injury and had an MRI scan on Tuesday to determine severity of the problem.

They also rate him as “doubtful” to face Real Mallorca even though the clash at Son Moix is still some 10 days away.

AS also report Messi has a muscle problem but say the club are “optimistic” he will be fit in time.

Barca have a rest day on Thursday but will return to training on Friday when we might get another update on how Messi’s fitness.
