Lionel Messi dips in panenka free-kick against Espanyol

Lionel Messi

Messi, 31, suffered a groin injury while on worldwide duty with Argentina last week, on what was his first return to the global stage since the 2018 World Cup.

But the most surprising part of his interview was probably his admission that he misses his nemesis.

Barcelona next visit Villarreal on Tuesday with a second successive title looking even more like a mere formality after a sixth straight victory extended their unbeaten league run to 17 matches. "It would be great if he were still here".

His goal against arch-rivals Real Madrid at Santiago Bernabeu in 2010-11 in a La Liga fixture took the third spot with 16 percent votes.

The 31-year-old may have been put off by the on-rushing keeper while the timing of his jump may have also scuppered.

The referee confirmed that Messi will have the goal, writing that he scored it in his report.

"I'd love to win something with Argentina", he added. "It should have been done slower". Well, you've got to give others a chance, right?

"Messi has very ironic humour, he's one of the biggest trolls [I know]", Pique told Movistar.

Messi said he was still tortured by the loss of the 2014 World Cup final to Germany in extra time and warned fans not to expect too much from Argentina at this year's Copa America in Brazil.

The draw subsequently ensured Messi and Ronaldo can not meet unless both clubs advance to the final, which is set to be played at Atletico's Wanda Metropolitano home, according to Goal. "They invent things about me when I am not there and nothing surprises me", he said.

"Being realistic, a lot of work is needed to be a powerhouse".

Messi, who scored twice in the reverse fixture which Barcelona won 4-0 in December, was ruled out of Argentina's second worldwide match against Morocco with a groin injury, while Suarez has recovered from a sprained ankle.

"The truth is I went into the global break with a strain I've had since before the winter break".

Messi also revealed that his son Thiago was perplexed by the hatred from fans, following Argentina's struggles on the worldwide front. My six-year-old son asked me: 'Dad, why do they crucify you in Argentina?'.

"It became customary to say things about me".
