Messi is out for two months with a hamstring injury.
‚ÄúMessi is a really tough guy, mentally strong and he‚Äôll return in top form. He‚Äôs played everything for four to five years, and he‚Äôs been decisive in all of his matches, scoring two or three goals in some of them.‚ÄĚ
Xavi also told El Mundo Deportivo: ‚ÄúHe‚Äôs the best in the world but when your body says stop, you have to stop. The most important thing is for him to recover well. For us, he‚Äôs the best and we need him a lot. In January he‚Äôll be in top form and he‚Äôll prove that he‚Äôs the best.‚ÄĚ
