Lionel Messi has now missed three consecutive games for Inter Miami due to an injury, and his manager, Gerardo Martino, has issued an update on the Argentine forward’s condition.
Messi was once again not included in the matchday roster for the Herons, who played New York City FC and managed to draw 1-1. The match took place on Saturday and was part of the Major League Soccer tournament. The renowned striker has now missed three consecutive games for Inter Miami due to injuries, which has raised worries that he may not play again this season. This was the third game in a row that he was unable to participate in. The manager, Gerardo Martino, though, issued an update on the star player’s injury after the game and said that he is making a speedy recovery.
Martino said the following while he was speaking to the press: “It is what I said. We are going to see this through to the very end. In preparation for our game on Wednesday against Chicago, we are going to do an examination on him. Whether or not he will be coming off the bench to play against Chicago or Cincinnati [next weekend], we need to know whether or not he is going to be on the bench. That is going to be shown to us.
“He’s working out on the pitch by himself, but he’s starting to feel stronger all the time… The passage of time will reveal either that what I am saying is accurate or that the one who made the report is correct.
His team has now gone winless in their past three matches, including a loss to Houston Dynamo in the final of the U.S. Open Cup. Messi is now out with an injury and is unable to lead them to victory.
