Paris Saint-Germain coach Mauricio Pochettino has not yet made a decision regarding the participation of his new Argentine player, Lionel Messi, in his team’s next match in the French Ligue 1 away to Stade Reims on Sunday.
Messi, 34, has not yet participated in any official match with his new club, which he joined from Barcelona earlier this month.
“We have to analyze (some aspects), and we will decide later,” Pochettino told a news conference on Saturday.
And Paris Saint-Germain announced later that the squad will be announced on Sunday morning.
Messi has not participated in any game since winning the Copa America with Argentina at the expense of Brazil on July 11.
Regarding Messi, Pochettino also said: “He is very enthusiastic. He is a great professional player and has adapted quickly to the players of his new team. He has the ability to adapt in any new league championship.”
