Injured Messi to miss out for PSG again

Lionel Messi will again be sidelined for Paris Saint-Germain for Saturday’s game against Montpellier as he continues to nurse a knee

injury, his club said, reports AFP. PSG said Messi had started running again and that a new update would come on Sunday, raising hope that he will be able to return for the Champions League clash against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City on Tuesday. Messi was taken off in the 76th minute of last weekend’s 2-1 win over Lyon in Ligue 1. It only emerged later that he was suffering from a knock to a knee and he played no part in Wednesday’s 2-1 league win at Metz.
