Wow! Lionel Messi scores from behind the goal during recovery training in Argentina [video]
Lionel Messi returns to Barcelona on January 2, 2014.
The Argentine superstar will have had close to two months off football due to injury and it could well make all the difference in arguably the most important year of his career to come.
Barcelona have not looked like the best club side in the world this season and will need Messi (along with the returning Victor Valdes) if they are to win La Liga and perform better in the latter stages of the Champions League, should they emerge past Manchester City.
All signs point to Messi being refreshed for the awesome challenge of the next 7 months.
