How many times has Messi been substituted in matches since 2010.. an incredible number
Lionel Messi is rarely substituted during matches, and according to the Opta statistics company, Messi has left the field in a home match 18 times in 371 matches since 2010 when it came to injury or his team decided the result in his favor early in the match.
As for Argentina, he has completed all his country's matches since 2014.
This means that Messi has never been replaced in the way that his current Argentine coach, Mauricio Pochettino, did.
And Pochettino, during the Paris Saint-Germain match against Lyon last Sunday in the French League, replaced Messi in the 76th minute and included Moroccan right-back Ashraf Hakimi instead.
The match ended with a difficult victory for Paris Saint-Germain 2-1.
Messi, who moved to Saint-Germain last month from Barcelona, was surprised by his coach's move.
