This past month, when playing for Inter Miami in a Concacaf Champions Cup encounter against Nashville SC, the Argentine forward twisted his left ankle and was in excruciating pain. A calf kick from the other team caused him to twist his ankle.

Messi tried to return to action on March 16 in a Major League Soccer match against DC United following an injury. But even though he scored in the second half, he was substituted because the pain was too much for him to bear.

“The right posterior is taxing on him. We like to avoid taking any chances. It was more convenient for him to leave the game since it upset him, according to Miami head coach Tata Martino, who spoke after the match.
