Messi, who is isolating in Rosario, posted a message ahead of the new year and wrote: “I can only give thanks for everything that I had to live in this 2021. Even more so when many people had a really bad time because of the s—ty virus that never ends. Hopefully 2022 brings a lot of health, which is what I wish you all for the new year. Hug to everyone!!!”

PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino said on Sunday that Messi will return to Paris only after he tests negative.

Argentina Football Association (AFA) president Claudio Tapia sent his best wishes to the Argentina captain, who contributed to the Albiceleste winning the Copa America in July.

“Dear Leo, I wish you a speedy recovery and that you can navigate this virus in the mildest possible way. Here we wait for you, to enjoy your magic again, with this shirt that we love so much,” he said. – CNN
