The news traveled Uruguay. Messi did not come out in the second half of the match with Lille for France’s Ligue 1. That October 29, the coach of Paris Saint Germain, Mauricio Pochettino, decided that the most appropriate thing was to take care of him. The medical part of the club pointed out “to pain in the knee after a contusion.” Since then to date, the Argentine captain was among cottons and his presence in the classic against Uruguay, on Friday, November 12, is in doubt.
Most of the Argentine journalists affirm that Messi does not play against Uruguay and that the intention is to take care of him so that he arrives in good shape for the second match of the double date against Brazil.
What do the players of the Uruguayan team think about Messi’s eventual loss?
Captain Diego Godín was consulted on the matter and replied: “It doesn’t change anything. Argentina is a great team, it comes with a positive inertia, we know what it means because we knew how to live it. It is true that without Messi on the court it is different but it is still Argentina. In any case, we are more concerned about ours because we need to score points ”.
The steering wheel Lucas Torreira was consulted on his arrival in Montevideo about the possible absence of the Argentine 10 and also offered his opinion.
“It is true that in the last game with PSG he was not there and he can have a lot to do with it because Messi is a great player and they depend a lot on him, but beyond that they have great players, they are American champions, and it has been a long time since they lose ”.
And finally Damián Suárez made reference to the issue by answering how much Messi’s possible loss weighs: “Too much, because we all know what Messi means worldwide. But Argentina has very good players and whoever plays we must play our game ”.
