ANKARA

Argentine football superstar Lionel Messi returned to Barcelona training on Monday after deciding to stay at the club for one more season.

Posting a video, Barcelona said on Twitter: ”Leo Messi begins preseason training.”

Messi on Friday announced that he had chosen to remain at Barcelona for this season after a contract dispute with the Spanish side.

On Aug. 25 the 33-year-old player moved to leave the team on a free transfer and was absent from last week’s training sessions.

He renewed his deal with Barcelona in 2017, and his deal is set to end on June 30, 2021.
