After the 2022 World Cup, the Argentine superstar is still on vacation, despite the fact that Kylian Mbappe and Neymar are already prepared to compete.
It has been reported that Neymar and Mbappe are getting ready to resume their careers with Paris Saint-Germain once the World Cup concludes. The French media reported that the offensive combination for PSG were in good shape and wanted to play football to get their minds off the loss they suffered in the most recent World Cup.
In the meantime, the management of the squad representing the French capital has not been successful in determining a precise date for when Lionel Messi will be allowed to come to Paris. The sportsman, who is now 35 years old, is continuing to celebrate his win of the world championship in his birthplace of Rosario, Argentina.
As of the start of this week, a large number of players who participated in the 2022 World Cup final have returned to the host club to resume training with the squad. As a result, PSG has decided to extend this opportunity to Messi as a special privilege. Aston Villa has requested that Messi’s teammate in Argentina, Emiliano Martinez, come to training and be ready for the match against Tottenham on January 1, 2023. The match is scheduled to take place on January 1.
“I promised all of the players before the World Cup that they would get a minimum of seven days off and a maximum of twelve days off following the competition. Therefore, I anticipate that Emiliano will arrive the following Thursday and be prepared for Tottenham “Unai Emery, the head coach of Aston Villa, disclosed Martinez’s intention to depart the club.
In point of fact, PSG has a good reason to allow Messi to take as much time off as the player requests. It will be difficult for other teams to catch up to the home club playing at Parc des Princes as they are currently generating a buffer of five points between themselves and the team in second place in the Ligue 1 standings, Lens. The resumption of the Champions League, the most crucial competition for PSG to compete in this season, is not until February. Messi has participated in all one of Argentina’s matches at the 2022 World Cup, and as a result, he needs far more recuperation than his younger teammates, such as Mbappe or Neymar.
When Paris Saint-Germain takes on Strasbourg in the round of 16 of Ligue 1 on the morning of December 29, it is anticipated that all of the crucial pillars will be available for the matchup, with the exception of Lionel Messi, who will receive additional rest, Danilo Pereira, and Nuno Mendes (both of whom have severe injuries).

Jurgen Klopp also shared his thoughts on the fervor of Argentina’s supporters during the dramatic triumph in Qatar: “They are deserving of this amazing thing. It’s all gone, as you can see. How joyful things are in their nation. In these trying circumstances, perhaps the championship has come to the appropriate nation.”
Following a one-month break for the World Cup, Liverpool, coached by Klopp, will resume play in the 17th round of the Premier League against Aston Villa. The Red Brigade is now sixth on the table and is having a difficult time qualifying for the group that will play in the C1 Cup the following year.
