Barcelona make Lionel Messi decision about potential Inter Milan return

Barcelona make Lionel Messi decision about potential Inter Milan return

"I'd like to see Ronaldo sit calmly on the bench when his team is scoring five goals and he knows he could have had three of them, as happened with Icardi against Genoa".

The Argentine superstar made a surprise return to training last Wednesday, despite initially being ruled out for three weeks when he suffered the injury against Sevilla on Oct.20.

The striker has not yet been declared fit by Barcelona's medical team but he will travel with the squad to the San Siro.

Messi very well may play, but with just two games left before the worldwide break, Barca could be better off giving him a couple more weeks of rest. "Of course it's necessary to get Messi back as soon as possible".

Barcelona have coped well in Messi's absence - winning all four of the games he has missed. We expect them to have a little more pressing and pressure high up the pitch.

Guardiola parted ways with Messi and Barcelona in 2012, and went on to manage Bayern Munich before guiding the Sky Blues to the Premier League throne last season.

"We've always said we can play against anyone, and that still holds true". "Under the new coach I'm not being picked but I'm working on it".

Then, Rafinha's Barca future looked bleak but Valverde's preference carries a clear message to the likes of Dembele and Malcom about the value he places on concentration, pressing off the ball and teamwork.

Messi could return when Barca face Real Betis on Sunday (3.15pm United Kingdom time).

Just as it seemed they would inflict a second defeat of the season on the champions, though, Ousmane Dembele equalised with a terrific half-volley in the 87th, before Suarez turned in his second to snatch three points for Valverde and co.
