Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde has caused some worry for the fans of the Catalan club after providing fitness update on Lionel Messi. The club captain and talisman missed Barcelona’s trip to the United States, where they claimed two wins over Serie A giants Napoli, due to a calf strain.
Ernesto Valverde disclosed to members of the press after the victory over Napoli that he believes it would be difficult for Lionel Messi to return from injury in time for his side’s La Liga opener against Athletic Bilbao on Friday.
