After Winning His 7th Ballon d’Or in Football News, Messi Has Fallen Sick


Paris Saint-Germain – PSG – and Argentina superstar Lionel Messi claimed his record-breaking Ballon d’Or of his remarkable career on Monday. But he is now struggling with a stomach bug and may have to miss midweek Ligue 1 duty with PSG. So, after winning his 7th Ballon d’Or in football news, Messi has fallen sick, which jeopardizes his near (playing) future.

Lionel Messi will be suffering disappointment if he has to sit out a home date with Nice. After all, he is still searching for a spark in French football.

Most cite him to be the best player on the planet. He has won the Golden Boot for last season owing heavily to his Copa del Rey triumph at Barcelona. Also contributing to his 2020-21 accomplishments is a Copa America win with Argentina, as their captain, over the summer.

However, the 34-year-old has registered just one Ligue 1 goal so far in 2021-22, and four efforts in all competitions.

And untimely spells out of action through injury and illness are further stunting his progress.

Lionel Messi appeared to be in good health when extending his record-setting achievements at the top of the world game.

The iconic Argentine looked well in a star-studded ceremony in Paris, France’s capital, to take his first prize once again. But now, it isn’t seeming well for Messi’s health.

The Argentine superstar collected another Golden Ball at a glitzy awards’ show on Monday. But Messi is now struggling to make midweek action.

He is feeling under the weather after landing another Golden Ball. So now, the PSG star could sit out a clash with Nice on Wednesday as a result.

In a fitness update released on the club’s official website, PSG have said: “Lionel Messi and Leandro Paredes did not participate in the training session today due to symptoms of gastroenteritis.

“A further check will be made tomorrow morning.”
