He’s back and he’s early. Lionel Messi has returned for training and he’s done that a week ago before schedule. The Argentine was involved with his country’s expeditions in the Copa America this summer and was scheduled to return next week but the four time Ballon D’Or is back early, probably to get even better, if there exists the slightest chance of that happening, as if he’s not perfect.
Messi was joined by compatriot Javier Mascherano and also by Brazil and Barcelona forward Neymar who also returned before time.
Barcelona won the treble last season after defeating Juventus in the Champions League final. Messi will be the frontrunner to win the Ballon D’or again this year after his efforts led Barcelona to the nd treble and Argentina to the Copa America final.
