Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde says Lionel Messi is fine after Clasico Injury

Barca boss Ernesto Valverde has minimized fears Lionel Messi injury picked up during Saturday’s Clasico win over Real Madrid.

Messi got an arm in the face from Sergio Ramos, which left him bleeding according to Gerard Pique, and also appeared to have tweaked his groin in the second half.

Valverde was asked about his skipper after the game but said all is well.

“Messi is fine,” said the Barca boss. “He has had a great game and made a great effort.

”He is an extraterrestrial in a way, because every time he takes the ball something extraordinary happens.”

Rayo Vallecano are the next visitors to the Camp Nou and the game looks a good chance for Valverd to rest players ahead of the second leg of their Champions League clash against Lyon.
