Barcelona Star Lionel Messi Says He Almost Tore His ACL After Hitting Pavement During Scrimmage

Barcelona star Lionel Messi says he almost tore his ACL after hitting the pavement during a scrimmage game. The two-time World Cup winner was in action against Argentina at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California on Friday when he collided with American defender DeAndre Yedlin. Messi said the injury occurred while he was trying to get back into the match after being substituted by manager Jorge Sampaoli.

“I hit my knee and I felt something strange,” Messi told reporters after the match. “I was scared that I had torn my ACL, but fortunately it’s all good. I’m really happy because I know what it’s like to be out for so long.”

Messi, who also suffered an ankle injury earlier this season, is expected to miss Barcelona’s final two games of the season as well as their Champions League quarter-final second leg against Juventus on April 25.

Barcelona star Lionel Messi said that he almost tore his ACL in his left knee during a scrimmage. Messi was injured during a recent scrimmage when he slipped, hit the pavement and suffered an injury to his left knee. Messi said that the injury does not affect him physically or mentally, and he is confident that the injury will heal quickly. Messi has not been limited in practice, but it is unclear whether he will start against Real Madrid this weekend.

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi says he almost tore the ACL in his left knee after hitting the pavement during a scrimmage on Tuesday.

Messi was injured while trying to play the ball at full speed and hit the ground hard, causing him to fall over in pain. The Argentina international has since been treated by his club, but is expected to be out for up to two weeks.

“I was playing with my team-mates and I fell badly on my knee,” Messi said in a statement published by Barcelona. “I am doing everything possible to be available as soon as possible.”

Messi has been sidelined since suffering a thigh injury during Argentina’s 3-1 win over Chile on July 20. Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said on Monday that he expects Messi to miss at least two weeks of action.

It was a very close call for soccer star Lionel Messi. The Barcelona forward, who is just 27 years old, told Argentinian radio station La Red that he nearly tore his ACL after hitting the pavement during a scrimmage.

“I almost got injured during training because I fell and hit the pavement,” he said. “My knee was hurting so much I thought it was torn.”

Messi is no stranger to injuries. In 2012, he missed two months of action after tearing his ACL during a Champions League match against Benfica.

The Barcelona star is not alone in his struggles with injury. A study published this week in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that soccer players are more likely than baseball players to suffer a serious injury such as a torn ACL or broken bone, and that the rate of such injuries has increased over time.

Lionel Messi is one of the best soccer players in the world, but even he can’t stop himself from getting injured after a tough hit.

The Barcelona forward told reporters on Tuesday that he suffered a serious injury during a scrimmage, and was forced to go to the doctor with tears in his eyes.

Messi said he “almost tore” his ACL, or anterior cruciate ligament, during a scrimmage at the start of last season.

“I almost tore my ACL,” Messi told reporters. “I was playing very well and then I hit the ground and it completely came apart.”

Messi said he was still able to play through the pain, but had to turn down the chance to play for Barcelona’s reserve team because of his pain.

“It was so bad that I had to get surgery,” he said. “It was really terrible.”

The Barcelona star showed off his scar fromhis ACL surgery.

He told La Sexta: ‘I had just come out of the medical centre, I was getting into the car and when I stepped down I hit the pavement.

‘I felt a twinge in my leg, it scared me.’

Messi admits he feared he would miss the World Cup if he tore his knee.

The Argentina star added: ‘It was not nice. If it had been much worse I could have missed the World Cup.’

Messi scored four goals on his return to action for Argentina in September as they beat Guatemala 6-0 in a friendly.

The Barcelona striker was injured in a scrimmage game with the Spanish national team, where he collided with another player on the ground and hit his right knee. Messi said he felt a pain in his right knee, but it did not stop him from playing.

“I hurt my knee a little bit when I fell on the field,” Messi said after the game. “I wanted to continue because I know how important it is for me to be able to play.”

Messi was left out of the starting lineup for the second consecutive game, after missing the last two games with a groin injury. He played just six minutes in the 2-0 win over Germany on Tuesday night, coming off for Sergio Busquets after playing 22 minutes.

In an interview with Spanish radio station Cadena SER, Messi said he was also forced out of training on Wednesday due to a groin injury. Messi said he suffered a knock to his groin while taking a free kick against Real Madrid in Spain’s 4-1 win on Saturday.

“It’s not serious,” Messi told Cadena SER. “I had some pain, but I have been able to resume training.”
