Soccer superstar Lionel Messi is taking longer than expected to return to the pitch after recovering from coronavirus. The Argentine explained this on Instagram.
“It’s taken longer than I thought to be okay but I’ve almost recovered and I’m looking forward to getting back on the field,” wrote the 34-year-old from French giants Paris Saint-Germain.
The six-time world footballer had tested positive in his home country during his Christmas vacation and had to go into quarantine there.
However, following a negative test, he returned to Paris on January 5. So far he has missed two games.
