Messi Injury Updates
Inter Miami fell 4-1 against Chicago Fire, ending their slender playoff aspirations, while Lionel Messi missed his fourth consecutive game. However, he might soon make a comeback.
According to his manager Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino, Messi may participate in Inter Miami’s Saturday home matchup against the team currently leading the Eastern Conference, FC Cincinnati.
He has also received an international call-up from Argentina, and this week’s end is anticipated to see him depart for South America.
With a game in hand over ninth-place Montreal, Inter Miami is five points outside of the postseason picture. Miami still has three games left, starting this weekend against Cincinnati and concluding with back-to-back contests against Charlotte FC.
To have a chance of making the playoffs, they probably need to win all three of their remaining games.
The superstar has played only 37 minutes for Miami since his comeback and was taken out during the first half of their victory against Toronto on September 20 due to an injury.
He missed Argentina’s 3-0 victory over Bolivia during the September international break. He has not appeared since then.

After Inter Miami’s loss to Chicago, Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino was questioned about Messi and said he may make an appearance against Cincinnati.
How soon will Lionel Messi be able to resume playing?
Miami’s slim chances of making the playoffs are dwindling, and if they do, they will need Messi to be healthy.
Tata won’t put Messi in danger, but there’s a potential he’ll come off the bench this weekend if they need a goal against Cincinnati late on.
But they must be careful in how they treat Messi’s little ailment, and Martino deserves praise for taking the matter head-on when many others would likely give in to pressure to continue playing Messi.
