Messi proves Barca fitness

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi has reportedly been given the green light to play against Celta Vigo on Sunday after passing fitness tests.

The No 10 missed Argentina’s friendlies against El Salvador and Ecuador during the international break with a sore foot, leading to concerns about his participation at the weekend.

However, upon his return to Catalunya on Thursday morning, Marca claims that he underwent a series of tests on his injury and successfully proved his fitness for the trip to Balaidos.
