Lionel Messi and three other PSG Players tests positive for COVID-19
Paris Saint-Germain have announced that Lionel Messi, Juan Bernat, Sergio Rico, and academy Nathan Bitumazala have been tested for COVID-19.
The contagious nature of Omicron’s diversity has led to a number of big-name players and coaches missing games recently, and now Mauricio Pochettino will be without Messi on PSG’s trip to Vannes in the Coupe de France on Monday night.
With the frustrations of PSG and Pochettino, Messi may not be able to feature in their Ligue 1 match at Lyon on January 9 if he continues to be diagnosed with Covid-19.
PSG have also confirmed that Neymar will continue to recover from injury with club members in his home country of Brazil before returning to Paris on January 9.
