Ex Barcelona coach and player, Pep Guardiola and Cesc Fabregas have sent heartfelt messages to goal machine, Lionel Messi following his recent injury. Recall that the Argentine suffered a tear in the internal collateral ligament of his left knee last Saturday and would be out of action for 6-8 weeks.
“Messi’s injury is a shame, although it is good news that he’ll only be out for eight matches. I’m a giant fan of his and I hope he’s recovered and ready to play in no time.” The Bayern Munich coach wrote.
Chelsea midfielder, Cesc Fabregas added that “I have already spoken to Leo, I tried to cheer him up. And all I hope is that his recovery goes well and he can return to the pitch, which is where he belongs.”
The 4-time World best footballer however appreciated the outpouring of supportive, kind and empathic messages all over the world.
“Thank you all for your supportive messages. For anyone who loves football, the hardest thing is not to be on the pitch. Now it’s time to recover properly to come back. A big hug.” The 28 year-old wrote on Facebook.
