Barcelona ‘don’t take care of’ Messi – Argentina coach Edgardo Bauza
Written by Morenike Adebayo on September 23, 2016
Argentina coach Edgardo Bauza has blasted Barcelona for not taking care of Lionel Messi and doubted he would be fit in time for his country’s World Cup qualifying matches next month.
Messi was injured on Wednesday in Barcelona’s one-one draw against Atletico Madrid, and the club reported that he has a torn right adductor and will be out for three weeks.
Bauza was critical of Barcelona for playing Messi in four games in twelve days despite a groin injury in his other leg that limited him earlier in the season.
Argentina resume their World Cup qualifying campaign at Peru on the sixth of October and home against Paraguay five days later. Barcelona face Sporting Gijon in the first of three away games in a week, as they battle to keep pace with La Liga leaders Real Madrid on Saturday.
