Lionel Messi comes up with genius method to train on his own at Barcelona

They are now allowed to train in groups of no more than ten with the next phase being a return to full training before a possible La Liga restart behind closed doors on June 12.

Though six-time Ballon d’Or winner Messi was filmed training on his own, and it seems the Argentine doesn’t need his team-mates to help him practise his heading.

Setting up with an elevated net around eight yards away from himself, Messi is seen doing some kick-ups.

He then uses his left foot to kick the ball high in the air before superbly heading it straight into the basketball-style net.

La Liga are keen to return and finish the season with Messi’s Barca top of the table by two points, ahead of rivals Real Madrid.

Messi had recently admitted that returning to football behind closed doors will be a strange sensation.

Messi said: “This break may end up benefiting us, but we are going to see if they can start the competitions and there we will get out of doubts, because we will check the level we have or can reach when we start.

“The risk of contagion is everywhere, when you leave the house the risk is already there, therefore I think that you do not have to think about it much.

PICTURES: Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell join Chelsea training

Published

Chelsea returned to training today (Wednesday) at Cobham, and there were two new faces joining the rest of the squad, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The two summer arrivals had yet to train with the squad since signing, dealing with quarantine (presumably) and heel injury issues, respectively.

It’s unclear if either will be fit and ready for this weekend’s match against Liverpool, but it’s still nice to see them in training with the rest of the group! (Those who played on Monday apparently had a lighter session, but were all out there nonetheless.)

There’s no word on how close Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may be. Ziyech is probably still a couple weeks out with his knee problem, at least, but Pulisic was supposed to be close before suffering a potential setback with his hamstring late last week. Neither were pictured in training, and one would assume their presence would get emphasized had they been there.
