Argentine superstar Lionel Messi is still celebrating the title triumph with his national side during the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar. Although the feeling is yet to sink in for him, it is about time for him to return to club football with French champion Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). Since the WC conclusion last month, PSG has played a couple of Ligue 1 contests, winning and losing apiece. The club will be in action on Friday against Chateauroux in Round 64 for the French Cup 2022-23. However, fans continue to wonder if the Argentine would show up for the match. Meanwhile, Parisians’ head coach Christophe Galtier has provided an update on the same.

Messi returned to training this week, while his PSG teammates gave him a guard of honour, and sporting director Luis Campos also presented him with a small trophy. “It was important that he be celebrated at home by all the players at the training centre. He was moved to have this celebration,” added Galtier, reports 90min.

“We’ll see when it’s his next game, but there is no demand and need for Leo to be celebrated. I dare to hope that our supporters will celebrate him. There’s no reason for them not to,” Galtier concluded. Meanwhile, Neymar is undergoing treatment for his injured ankle and was never in contention for the Chateauroux game.
