Leo Messi will not play the United States tour. Barça's captain was injured this morning during training at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper, the first after his return of the holidays. He suffers a first-grade injury to the sole of his right leg, as the club announced through a statement. Barça decided that Messi will stay in Barcelona so he can recover from the muscle problem.
