Ligue 1: Pochettino yet to decide if Messi will make trip to Reims


Coach Mauricio Pochettino said he had not yet decided if Argentine forward Lionel Messi would be included in Paris St Germain’s squad for Sunday’s Ligue 1 trip to Reims.

The 34-year-old Messi, who signed a two-year deal with PSG with an option for a third year after his contract with Barcelona expired, has yet to feature in the squad since joining on August 10.

“We need to analyse and we will decide later,” Pochettino told a news conference on Saturday.

PSG said later that the squad would be announced on Sunday morning.

“He has the capacity to adapt to a new league.”
