Barcelona star Lionel Messi is well prepared for La Liga new season as he trained alone on Wednesday, working with his fitness coach Juanjo Brau as he continue his recovery from calf injury he sustained in training last Monday.

Messi is hopefully to return on Thursday but chances are against him to feature in the opening match against Atletico Bilbao on Friday night.

Barcelona Manager Ernesto Valverde said last weekend that it would be “very difficult” for Messi to be ready for the Athletic game.

The 32 year old will do everything possible to get himself into the team before the opening game of the new La Liga season.
