Lionel Messi returns to Barcelona training ahead of Getafe clash

The champions are back to full strength


Lionel Messi returned to Barcelona training on Wednesday as the Spanish champions returned to full strength after the Christmas break.

Most of the players were back on Sunday, but they have now been joined by Messi, Munir, Luis Suarez, Arturo Vidal, Arthur and Malcom.

Youngsters Juan Miranda and Riqui Puig were once again training with the first team on Wednesday.

Barcelona’s injury problems seem to be easing ahead of their first fixture of 2019.

While Samuel Umtiti, Thomas Vermaelen and Rafinha remain on the injured list, Sergi Roberto and Malcom have been back in training meaning Ernesto Valverde has plenty of options for Sunday’s trip to Getafe.
