Sampaoli, the former Chile and Sevilla manager, has stressed his long-term plan to build a more cohesive unit that plays to Messi’s strengths.
Sampaoli said he didn’t want his star playmaker working in an isolated manner, so “we’re going to push for the team to play collectively with Messi to get the best out of him.”
Messi was expected to start on Friday, as well as the Juventus pair of Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain and Paris Saint-Germain’s Angel Di Maria.
