Paris Saint Germain (PSG) manager Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that summer signing Lionel Messi won't be available for the league game with Montpellier this weekend as he works his way back to full fitness after a bruised bone. Messi had suffered the injury in the slender 2-1 home win over Lyon thanks to the late goal from substitute Mauro Icardi.
Pochettino gave an update on the fitness of Messi for the Montpellier during his pre-match presser on Friday. The PSG boss would be hoping that his players can maintain their perfect start to the new league season when they take on Montpellier at home.
PSG made it seven wins from seven games in midweek courtesy the late goal from Moroccan international fullback Achraaf Hakimi off the assist from Neymar in the slim away win over Metz.
