Barcelona star Lionel Messi admits he won't be back until January.

Messi is recovering from injury.

"I'm calm about it. It's a difficult injury because I'm going to be away from the field for a long time, but it it's also a common one for a footballer. I'll be fine by January and then I can continue doing the things I was doing before," said Messi.
