Barcelona, have predicted eight-week lay-off for the four-time Ballon d’Or winner, who tore a tear the internal collateral ligament of his left knee during Saturday’s 2-1 win over Las Palmas.
But Villani predicts that the Albiceleste captain will be back playing in the shortest possible time.
“For years I’ve known Leo and I have no doubt that he will be ready in the shortest possible time of the injury, perhaps before that period of six-to-eight weeks,” Villani told Ole.
“He gets mad when you cannot play. The desire to play again and the will to heal can influence”
“There is a break in need of surgery. It heals with rest as a first step and then kinesiology.”
This is how Leo Messi picked up knee injury v Las Palmas
