Details of Messi's injury exposed! Old injuries are severely painful, and if the scar is broken, it will be absent for a long time
After an early exit against Toronto, Messi missed two key games and it is still unknown whether he will be able to play against New York City. With no muscle strain, why has Messi been unable to return?
In the World Cup qualifiers against Ecuador on 8 September, Messi started and scored the winner with a free kick. However, Messi was also substituted in the 89th minute, the first time in nine years that he was replaced early in the national team.
The media thought that Messi withdrew early in preparation for the match against Bolivia, but Messi's withdrawal this time was due to the recurrence of old injuries. In the match against Bolivia on September 12, Messi did not make the squad.
After returning to the club, Messi continued to miss the game against Atalanta due to injury, and returned against Toronto on September 21, but the injury recurred, allowing him to be substituted in the 37th minute. After that, Messi missed two games against Orlando and Houston.
After his early exit against Ecuador, Messi has been examined three times in 15 days, after the game, after returning to Miami and after Toronto, and the result of three examinations is that Messi's right hamstring is not strained or torn muscle.
However, Messi always felt severe pain in the back of his right leg, which even prevented him from playing. So why does Messi feel severe pain when there is no strain on his right leg?
Insiders revealed, "Because of multiple injuries, Messi's muscles in this position have scars, and this is exactly the problem that bothers him, the biggest problem is that if the scar is ruptured, it will lead to a longer recovery time than muscle strains." ”
"All that is done now is to fix the scar and make sure it doesn't break during the game. For some reason, the scar didn't heal very well, which bothered him now, causing him to not be able to play freely. He was in constant pain and no one wanted the scar to crack or he would have been absent longer. ”
