Messi returns to FC Barcelona after an ankle injury

Trainer Ronald Koeman said on Saturday that Messi has worked overtime to get fit again. “He trained on December 30th and 31st, two days off the squad. He’s no longer in pain. Messi is ready.”

Messi is now in the last six months of his contract with Barcelona. Only at the end of the season does he decide about his future, Messi said earlier. According to Koeman, this does not cause unrest within his selection. “Like any player with an expiring contract, he is free to decide what he wants,” he said. “He has proven that he wants the best for this team and I have no problem with him not making his decision now. We don’t feel nervous or worried about it.”

After the draw against Eibar, FC Barcelona has played 10 points less than leader Atlético Madrid and one match more. Koeman: “I am a realist when it comes to our title chances. We cannot afford to miss many more points. Atlético is very constant, which makes it difficult for us.”
