Lionel Messi was beaming after his goalscoring return for Barcelona last night.

Messi capped his long-awaited return from injury with two late goals from the substitutes' bench as Barcelona recorded a 4-0 win over Getafe in the Copa del Rey last 16 first leg on Wednesday.

"I'm back and it is just what I wanted. I'm very happy for everything because I was many days off the pitch. I felt good in practice and I noticed this in the game," smiled Messi.

"I played without hamstring pain. These two months I suffered, but thanks to recovering in my homeland I return more mentally and physically rested."

He also told Barca fans: "I've always said and I repeat, my wish is to retire here. It's what I want."
