Paris Saint-Germain coach Christophe Galtier said, Friday, that Lionel Messi will return to the PSG squad for the Champions League clash against Bayern Munich next week.

Galtier added that Messi will miss the team's game against Monaco.

On Wednesday, PSG were eliminated, on Wednesday, from Coupe de France by Marseille.

PSG lost the contribution of Mbappe in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie against Bayern. Shortly, reports suggested Messi was also doubtful after suffering from a muscle issue.

However, Galtier eased the situation by asserting that Messi will be in the squad for the French team game against the Bundesliga giants on Friday.

The coach said in the press conference, today: "Leo has felt muscle fatigue, he will resume training on Monday. He is not uncertain for Bayern."

He added: "We know the importance of Leo to our game. With his absence, we will have to play in a different way to have a more solid, more compact team structure, to use each other. Obviously, going to Monaco without Leo is always annoying."
