Leo Messi abandoned training with the Argentinian squad today and has immediately gone to have tests on a possible injury. The first news coming through say the injury is to his little toe, reports also say it is not serious. Some reports suggest Messi will fly back to Barcelona from the USA where Argentina are to play two friendlies. On twitter there are suggestions the player could be out for three to four weeks which would mean he would be doubtful for the the Champions League quarter-final clash with Paris Saint Germain.
Update 17.42 – reports of Messi having lunch with his Argentinian teammates. A tweet from the Argentinian squad says there is no injury. Looks like it could all be a false alarm.
