Barcelona crock Lionel Messi denies there's a rift with club physio Juanjo Brau.

There is talk that Messi is unhappy with the work of Brau after breaking down with a hamstring injury on the weekend.

But 'Leo Messi Management' explained: "Barcelona's medical staff has been treating him for the past two days so that he can fully recover. Due to him being affiliated to the Argentine Football Association (AFA) and having matches scheduled with his national team, kinesiologist Luis García arrived in Barcelona on Tuesday, representing the Argentine national team, to examine his injury and ascertain its state and severity, the company.

"We want to completely deny reports disseminated by some areas of the media and ratify those expressed by several people at the club: Juanjo Brau, a true professional who has worked closely with him in recent years, no longer works on a day-to-day basis with Leo because he has been promoted within the club."
