Luis Enrique: Messi in perfect condition for Celta showdown

Barcelona boss Luis Enrique has announced that star forward Lionel Messi is fit for Sunday's tricky trip to the Balaidos to face Celta Vigo.

The Argentina international had been a doubt for the Liga game in Galicia after sitting out his country's friendlies against El Salvador and Ecuador during the international break because of an ankle problem.

However, while Luis Enrique refused to confirm if Messi will start against Celta, he did reveal that the diminutive No.10 had come through Saturday's training session "without any problems".

The story is too old to be commented.
