Sergi Busquets says Barcelona teammates all support Lionel Messi as he seeks to recover from a hamstring injury.

Busquets insists they want Messi to take his time in getting over his latest setback.

He told Barca's official website: "Messi is intelligent, he knows what he needs. This is not a short-term injury.

"He's going to recover as well as possible, and he will do so calmly. He knows what he needs better than anyone else, and he knows that rushing things can lead to complications.

"When he comes back he'll be at 100 per cent."
