Messi will play in second leg against Atletico

Barcelona star Lionel Messi has been authorized by the medical staff in the club to play in the second leg of the Spanish Super Cup against Atletico Madrid.

Last week, the Argentinean was replaced at the break, in 1:1 at "Vicente Calderon" in the first match, after having received injury in his thigh. He did not play at the minimum a 1-0 win over Malaga at the weekend, but it's part of the group for the second match with "Atletico." Barca coach Gerardo Martino ensure that the striker is feeling better after being trained with the team on Monday and Tuesday.

"The situation was not any different than before," said the specialist. "Of course, he is ready to play, but we'll see if he will. Every trophy is important. Barcelona fights to win titles, and here that one is waiting for someone to pick her up. Of course there is a big difference between that to started the season with a trophy and to start the season, losing the battle for a trophy. "

"Neymar? I expect him to stay in Barcelona for 10-12 years, I do not need him only for the game against Atletico" ended Martin.
