Leo Messi has not trained on Friday with the coach’s permission and he will not be in the squad for the game against Eibar on Saturday.

Barcelona have announced that Lionel Messi will miss Saturday’s trip to Eibar in what is the club’s final fixture of the 2020-21 season.

The news come a bit of a surprise but it seems the captain has been given permission to take a bit of a break before his involvement in the Copa America this summer.

Messi did not train on Friday and is the second player to be sent on holiday early with Barca confirming earlier this week that Pedri has been given time off after a busy schedule.
