Messi Could Make His Debut In Gameweek 4 Of Ligue 1

Leo Messi was back in training with PSG this Monday 16th August, as those in the Parc des Princes are already working out when he could make his debut. ‘Sky Sports’ highlight that it could come as early as 29th August against Reims.

After his acclaimed arrival in Paris, Leo Messi trained this Monday for the third time with Paris Saint-Germain. The Argentine, who was presented in front of supporters before the match against Strasbourg alongside the rest of the summer signings, trained without any problems and continues working to be available as soon as possible to make his debut for his new team.

PSG head coach Mauricio Pochettino already assured that the club and technical body will take it slow with Messi and that the priority of both is that “he feels good” and is “in the best possible conditions” for the first match wearing the blue shirt of his new side.

Many rumours are going round about when the six-time Balon D’Or winner will make his first appearance for PSG, with doubts over whether that will arrive before or after the upcoming international break.

Despite that, ‘Sky Sports’ look to be clear on the matter and reported this Monday 16th August that the ex-Barca man will have his first minutes at his new club in the match away from home against Reims on 29th August.

Initially, it looked like his debut would be delayed as far as the encounter against Clermont on 12th September, but that clash could instead become the first which the Argentine starts, after a pre-season like no other.

Without a contract until he signed for PSG, the player had no break after the end of the 2020/21 campaign and went on to play every game for Argentina in this summer’s Copa America, which he famously went on to win.

Afterwards, Messi enjoyed some deserved holiday and was unable to undergo a normal pre-season given the distractions over his Barcelona contract. When negotiations broke down he went to Paris, where is finally back training as normal.
