Messi to take time over comeback

Lionel Messi says he will be back playing football "when the body tells me I'm fine" and not a minute sooner as he recovers from his latest hamstring injury.

The plan is to resume playing when the body tells me I'm fine.

I'm sad because I did not expect it and I'm also angry because it is an injury that happened to me right after another.

"'m not worried, really. This injury happened because it had to happen. There is nothing unusual or anything to look back at.

A hit, a bad move and I was injured.

– Barcelona forward Leo Messi
