The return of Barcelona’s embittered captain and greatest ever player to the Ciutat Esportiva in Sant Joan Despi, which is the training ground of Barcelona took place on Monday, September 7, 2020.
Lionel Messi was seen driving into the training ground at 4:00 pm (1400 GMT) where he is expected to take part in training for the first time under new coach Ronald Koeman and this will also be the first time Messi has trained under Koeman, who was appointed Barca’s new coach last month.
Messi is expected to begin reintegrating with his team following his failed attempt to leave the club this summer.
If Messi passes his coronavirus test and rejoins training without problems, he could feature in Barcelona’s friendly against Gimnastic Tarragona on Saturday, September 12, 2020.
It would be the first time Messi has played for the team since their historic 8-2 defeat by Bayern Munich in last month’s Champions League quarter-finals.
