Barcelona star man Lionel Messi is expected to travel down to the African country of Egypt to honour a health campaign that is aimed at fighting the dreaded disease known as Hepatitis C.

The Five-time World Player of the Year having won the much-coveted award in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2015, was scheduled to visit the country’s capital Cairo last week Wednesday (February 15) however the disappointing 4-0 defeat of Spanish La Liga and Copa Del Rey champions Barcelona at the hands of French champions Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) prompted the sponsors to issue a statement that the Argentine superstar will remain in Spain.

Messi, who has scored 35 goals in all competitions for the five-time European Champions this season, was initially scheduled to visit the North African country in December 2016 before his trip was called off as a result of the Cairo Cathedral bomb incident that took place around that time.
