Brest is Argentina baby! After seeing the birth of Gonzalo Higuain one day in December 10, 1987, will the city of Ponant have the right to attend in world exclusivity the first steps of Leo Messi in Ligue 1? Mauricio Pochettino did not rule out this hypothesis, explaining that he was still thinking with his staff about the possibility of summoning the Pulga for the trip to Francis Le Blé on Friday. "We are still in the thinking phase, we do not yet know whether he will be in the group or not," La Pochette said at a pre-match press conference on Thursday noon. For the rest, everything is positive concerning Leo, there is a very good atmosphere in the group and he adapted very quickly. We are very happy with the way everything is going so far. "
If the former Spurs coach decides to take Messi with him in Brest, it would contrast sharply with the policy that has been his since the start of the preparation regarding the resumption of internationals.
Kylian Mbappé, for example, had to wait 17 days after his recovery before being able to tread the lawn in an official match (in Troyes for the first match of the season).
What is certain is that after only a week of training, the Argentine star appeared already sharp and very leggy, sometimes bluffing his own teammates during the ball exercises.
Places are tearing up like little Kouign-amann
For the rest, it will be necessary to wait for the announcement of the group (Thursday afternoon) to know whether or not Leo Messi will be in the game.
Still a little patience, then.
In Finistère, the possible arrival of the former Barcelonan has been in everyone's mind for several days already.
So much so that a place has not been available at the club ticket office since Wednesday.
On the black market, places are still selling for between 80 and 150 euros.
