Barcelona coach Tata Martino: ‘Messi’s hungry to play, he’s got the look of an assassin’ [Video]
Lionel Messi is back in full training with Barcelona after his brief recovery sojourn back in Argentina, and is by all accounts fully recovered and ready to play.
Coach Tata Martino has decided not to rush or risk him against Elche tomorrow, with no major need to take the risk against a Liga minnow.
Martino is delighted with the condition Messi has returned in, choosing a peculiar turn of phrase to convey just how hungry and determined he looks, saying:
‘I see him with the look of an assassin.’
La Liga defences: You’ve been warned.
Martino’s odd choice of phrase can be seen at 1:00 on the clip below.
