Barcelona star Lionel Messi has thanked Champions League foes, Borussia Monchengladbach for sending him a goodwill message after he injured his thigh during the week. The Argentine expressed gratitude to the German club for their message as he now gets ready to be out for three weeks. The 29-year-old sustained the injury in the Catalans’ 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid at the Nou Camp on Wednesday.
The Bundesliga side are disappointed Messi will not play on their turf.
“What a pity! We would have liked to have seen you on Wednesday with @FCBarcelona at Borussia Park. Get well, Lionel Messi,” they wrote on Twitter.
“Many thanks to Borussia Monchengladbach for their message of support! A really nice gesture from the club.
“Of course I would also like to thank everyone who has sent me their best wishes. I now have to rest for a few days before coming back even stronger. Hugs to everyone,” Messi responded.
