Paris Saint-Germain star Lionel Messi trained alone on Thursday ahead of his side’s clash with Lille on Friday. 

PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino revealed that Messi picked up a muscle injury despite training as normal throughout the week. The Argentine had an individual training session on Thursday and is a doubt for the home clash tomorrow.

“After the match against Marseille, he trained normally,” said Poch.

“Today [Thursday], he had a muscle issue, he had an individual training session. We’ll see tomorrow if he can be ready [for the match].”

Kylian Mbappe also sat out today’s training due to an ear and nose infection. The Frenchman is expected to resume training early next week and will miss tomorrow’s clash.
