Barcelona chief Zubizarreta happy Messi back amongst goals

Barcelona sports chief Andoni Zubizarreta was happy seeing Lionel Messi grab a hat-trick in victory over Real Mallorca.

Messi's latest hat-trick saw him move onto 199 competitive goals for Barca and, having climbed above Laszlo Kubala into second place on the club's all-time scoring list earlier this month, he now has Cesar Rodriguez's record of 235 in his sights.

Zubizarreta said of Messi on Monday: "His value and talent shouldn't be doubted. If we look at things in terms of mistakes, he's the man who makes the fewest in world football right now."
