Barcelona: Lionel Messi insisted yesterday there are no problems between him and Antoine Griezmann or between the players and Barcelona's board. Messi returned from injury to make his second start of the season against Inter Milan in the Champions League as Barca came from behind to win 2-1. Speaking after the match, Messi was asked about his relationship with Griezmann, who had said on Tuesday it was "difficult" to establish a connection with the Argentine while he had been injured.

"Obviously we have no problem," Messi said. "There is a good relationship with everyone, the dressing room is united. We needed this victory and hopefully now we can kick on and continue in this way."
