Capello says Barcelona shouldn't be concerned about Messi form

Former Real Madrid coach Fabio Capello says Barcelona shouldn't be concerned by Lionel Messi's form.

Capello spoke after Barca's Champions League win at Juventus about the Argentine's attitude.

"I saw a super-dynamic and aggressive Barca, on top of the known quality," he explained. "With a Messi who I have never seen run so much."

Barca coach Ronald Koeman certainly wants his team to work hard and Messi is no exception.

"Juventus suffered a lot and were lucky that the final result was only 2-0, despite that the two goals were unjust, especially the first, a deflection," added Capello.
