Barcelona confirmed that Lionel Messi returned to training on Wednesday, just 11 days after breaking his arm in the win over Sevilla.

The club said at the time they expected him to be out for three weeks, but today’s news will bring optimism he could be back sooner than that.

It’s not clear when Messi will be cleared to return. Barca have another busy week coming up with Rayo Vallecano, Inter Milan and Real Betis up next.
