Messi is working his way back from a hamstring injury.
"Messi has to work on his recovery until he is in good shape again. I am sure that he will come back the same or better than before. For me he is still the best ever as shown by his stats," said Rosell.
"As president I am very relaxed about the whole thing."
The Barcelona President was unable to hide his preference in the coming elections for the next Golden Ball: "I would vote for Leo." Above all, Sandro Rosell saw Messi as "in good shape and eager to recover well."
