Leonel Messi Ruled out of Laliga first game season due to injury


Leonel Messi has been ruled out ahead of the opening of La Liga season after injuring his right calf in training on Monday.
"I wanted to get started and unfortunately I had a mishap during the first training session which will keep me out of action for a while," the five-time Ballon d'Or winner posted on Instagram.
The Argentina and Bacelona captain star has already been ruled out of the team's trip to Florida for a one-off friendly against Napoli in Miami on Wednesday.
"Tests carried out have diagnosed a grade 1 calf strain," the Spanish champions said in a statement, an injury that can require around two weeks of recuperation.
"Messi will remain in Barcelona and will now not travel to the USA for the club's tour. His availability to come back to action will be dictated by his recovery from the injury."
Leonel Messi, who was at the Camp Nou on Sunday for the squad presentation ahead of the friendly match against Arsenal, said he was sorry to be missing the Florida trip.
"I wanted to be with the team and with the people who follow us in the US," said Messi.
"This time it will not be possible but we will meet again soon. I kiss you all."
Bacelona will play their first Laliga campaign away to Athletic Bilbao on August 16.
