Lionel Messi banned from PSG’s match against Metz due to a blow to his left knee
Messi has endured a frustrating start to his PSG career following his departure from Barcelona.
The Argentine was shocked when he was substituted by manager Mauricio Pochettino during his home debut against Lyon last weekend.
Messi was taken off the field in the 76th minute and stared sharply at Pochettino as he was pulled back, while also appearing to refuse a handshake from his compatriot.
In addition, Messi made a gesture with his hands apart to indicate that he did not understand the decision.
Messi has made three appearances for PSG so far, playing a total of 190 minutes, but is still waiting for his first goal for the French side.
Other injury news: midfielder Marco Verratti is back in training, while Sergio Ramos is training individually to accelerate his recovery.
