What can be worse than being passionate about your job, and not being able to do it due to an injury? If you have ever felt the disappointment of being unable to complete a task, imagine how Lionel Messi feels today, after Barcelona officially confirmed his hamstring injury. It’s not only the fact that he might be sidelined for a while but also the disappointment of his fans – and Barca’s fans – because of him missing from the playfield.
Take it slow
Messi’s injury has been noted by the team even before the player left for Argentina last week. Although the injury admittedly bothered him, Messi still scored Albiceste’s only goal against Uruguay. He played against Uruguay, but he won’t set foot on the field against Venezuela, and, according to Argentina coach Edgardo Bauza, he will most likely not play with Barca against Alaves either.
“Tests conducted today on first team player Leo Messi have confirmed that the discomfort in his left adductor muscle persists,” the announcement issued by Barca reads. “It’s advised he lowers the burden of training in the coming days and the evolution of the injury will mark his availability to return to action.”
“Everything is fine, I have to slow things down as I recover with physio, but it’s nothing to worry about”, Messi reassured his fans in a Facebook update this week. “Thanks to you all for your support.”
Since the evolution of Messi’s injury was discovered recently, and might still evolve, there’s no way to know when he will be back on the field. He might be out for weeks, during which he’ll have nothing to do but relax, see the doctors, and play – maybe even Football Star, so he won’t be missing the game too much.

The good news
