Bad news arrived for Barcelona on Monday, as superstar striker Lionel Messi has been ruled out for eight weeks with a hamstring injury.
Messi, the reigning World Player of the Year for a record four years in a row, felt his left hamstring give way during Barca’s 4-1 win over Real Betis on Sunday. The 26-year-old Argentine forward immediately left the field and tests show the radical attacker has torn a muscle in his hamstring and will be out until at least January.
That’s a huge blow for club and country. These give his rival C.Ronaldo an egde over him for the title of the Ballon D’or best player of the year, don’t you think so?
