Messi: Now the countdown begins

Lionel Messi has revealed that he feels ‘very good’ as his recovery from injury continues in Argentina.

The Barcelona man broke down on November 10 in the game against Real Betis and has since begun physical work with the backroom staff of the Argentina national team.

Physios Daniel Martinez and Alajandro Rolon have been monitoring the goalscorer, along with Blaugrana doctor Ricard Prune, fitness Coach Elvio Paolorosso and movement specialist Luis Garcia.

The latest medical report from the Argentina Football Association [AFA] confirmed that Messi has recovered from an injury to his left hamstring, and will begin a third stage of recovery on Monday in Rosario.

And posting on Chinese social network Tencent Weibo, the attacker insisted: “Injury-wise I am very good. Now the countdown begins.”
