According to a statement by PSG, Lionel Messi is one of four Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) players to have tested positive for Covid-19.
The other three players are Juan Bernat, Sergio Rico and Nathan Bitumazala. All players are in isolation and are subject to the appropriate health protocol, according to the team.
Since joining PSG from Barcelona in August 2021, Messi has scored only one League goal, however he has scored five out of five Champion League matches.
Back in November 2021, Messi won his seventh Ballon d’Or title. This is a record-extending win for Messi, who currently has two bigger number of titles than his rival Cristiano Ronaldo.
Despite the fact that it very well may be viewed as a generally down year at club level for Messi, the 34-year-old Argentine played a fundamental role in assisting Argentina with winning the Copa América title recently.
He also completed as the Spanish league’s top scorer and scored two goals as Barca won the Copa del Rey. Messi recently won the Ballon d’Or award in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, and 2019.
