Leo Messi has returned to his ‘garden’. The Argentina forward, along with the rest of the Barcelona first team, was back at Camp Nou on Saturday for a special training session.
It was the first time the players have played on their home pitch in three months, in concrete 91 days. That is how long it has been since they beat Real Sociedad 1-0 before the coronavirus lockdown.
It was an emotional return for Messi, who posted a message on social media of his delight at being able to step foot on the Camp Nou turf once again.
“How I have missed you,” he wrote, alongside a photograph of him training. “Looking forward to playing here again.”
