Messi down with 'fever' after match
Lionel Messi did not train with his Barcelona teammates yesterday morning after being visited at home by club doctors to treat a fever, the club said
“The Argentine player is suffering from a fever and general sickness.
The first-team doctors have visited Messi at his home where they have given him the necessary medication and recommended he rest,” said a statement on the Barcelona website.
Messi played for the full 90 minutes as Barcelona were unceremoniously dumped out of the Copa del Rey on Tuesday night by Real Madrid.
