Lionel Messi Should NOT Play Against P$G

There are a lot of rumors about the ability, readiness, and sanity of Lionel Messi’s participation in the second leg game of the Champions League quarter-finals stage against Paris Saint-Germain.

I am not a doctor, but maybe you are an armchair one. He should not play this game even if the medical team gave him the green light or the go-ahead to. The math is simple:

  • This is only Paris Saint-Germain
  • The away first-leg result is not a bad one
  • The team played a magnificent match without him over the weekend
  • He never took rest
  • An injured player should not be rushed back into action
  • Risking Messi’s career is at stake
  • One match and one season lost are not as important as a forced early retirement

Barcelona need Messi. Messi cannot stay off the pitch. The world loves seeing him. Yet, I ask the guardian angels of football to insert some logic in Messi’s head and persuade him against playing.

Messi said on his Facebook page: "I will return soon, thankfully it was not so serious." Let us hope soon is not 10 April, for his own sake.
