Zubizarreta: Barcelona won't use Messi absence as excuse

Barcelona chief Andoni Zubizarreta insists they won't seek excuses while Lionel Messi is sidelined.

Messi is out for two months with a hamstring injury.

"Nobody can play as Messi. That's impossible. Only Messi has his unique characteristics. We have not, nor will we, make a big deal of Messi's injury. I'm sure that in two months' time we'll see Leo back in tip-top condition," Zubizarreta.
