- Lionel Messi and teammates are expected to resume training from May 4
- Spanish La Liga season has been put on hold because of coronavirus issues
- Football fans will be hoping to see Lionel Messi back on the Barcelona pitch
Lionel Messi and his teammates at Barcelona and even the rest of the Spanish La Liga stars have reportedly been given from May 4 as the date they will return to training.
Spanish La Liga players have all been on compulsory holiday since last month when the League was suspended due to the continuous threat of the deadly coronavirus.
As it stands presently, no resumption date has been picked by the authorities controlling the Spanish La Liga, but they are optimistic that the season will not be cancelled.
There have been calls that the whole season in Europe be cancelled and the body in charge should start afresh.
Already, France’s Ligue 1 have followed the Dutch Eredivisie in cancelling the domestic campaigns.
However, Barcelona ace Messi and his fellow team-mates will now be upping the intensity of training after Spanish president Pedro Sanchez outlined measures for the country’s de-escalation plans.
After Phase 0 is completed in Spain, training sessions at club centres will then be allowed in Phase 1, which will get underway on May 11.
Nearly 24,000 deaths from coronavirus have been recorded in Spain, but the League body are positive that the season will resume.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Barcelona star Lionel Messi is one of the best free kick takers in the world considering the number of goals the Argentine has scored on the pitch via this exercise.
So far in Lionel Messi's football career, the six-time Ballon d'Or winner has scored more than 50 free kicks against many clubs in Europe.
It has even gotten to the stage that clubs have started putting players at the back of their goalkeepers in their efforts to stop Lionel Messi from scoring.
But all these efforts have been abortive as Lionel Messi would still find his way to score free kicks for Barcelona.
Even recently, Lionel Messi was voted as the greatest free kick taker of all time in a poll conducted.
And now, Lionel Messi's big secret of how he scores brilliant free kicks has been revealed according to the report on SportsBible.
