On Monday at 17:30, the first training session of Barcelona under the leadership of the new coach Ronald Koeman was scheduled in Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper in Sant Joan Despí, and as expected Leo Messi did not appear. This news was brought by the Catalan Mundo Deportivo.
That Messi would not show up as clear as early as yesterday when the best player in the world did not show up for medical tests to show if he had coronavirus.
Messi will face a severe club penalty. In accordance with the collective agreement between La Liga and the Spanish Football Association (AFE), Messi will commit a serious offense if he does not show up at the training camp in the afternoon as Barcelona believes that Messi is still their captain.
The club can deprive Messi of 25 percent of his monthly salary, according to the rules, but Marca thinks that Josep Maria Bartomeu and his associates will be cautious not to completely annoy the Argentine because they believe that an agreement is still possible.
