Lionel Messi is anticipated to make his return for Inter Miami in their Major League Soccer (MLS) match against D.C. United on Saturday, following his recovery from a left knee injury.

Messi was able to train without any restrictions on Friday, after being absent from the team’s goalless draw with Orlando City on Wednesday.

“He trained well … [and] we are optimistic. The plan is for him to play,” Inter Miami manager Gerardo Martino told reporters on Friday.

The 36-year-old Argentina captain sustained the injury during the first half of Inter Miami’s 3-2 win away at Montreal last Saturday. Despite returning to the game a few minutes later, Martino revealed that Messi continued to be affected by the injury throughout the second half at Saputo Stadium.

“He received a knock to the knee which troubled him until yesterday,” Martino said.

Inter Miami is currently leading the MLS Eastern Conference standings with 28 points from 14 matches, holding a one-point lead over second-placed Cincinnati, who have a game in hand.
