Messi will rest for Barcelona match on Wednesday says Coach
Lionel Messi will rest for Barcelona match on Wednesday by coach Ronald Koeman as Barcelona will be traveling to Hungary for a Champions League match at Ferencvaros on Wednesday for the next round.
Barcelona top Group G on 12 points from four games, but are wallowing in eight position in the Spanish Liga with 14 points behind leaders Real Sociedad.
Barcelona’s coach Ronald Koeman said the match in Hungary will be an excellent opportunity to rest the Barcelona stars and give a run out to lesser lights.
“We wouldn’t normally do this, but with the calendar being what it is this year there are only a few opportunities to rest people and tomorrow is one of them,” said the Dutchman.
Goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen and Brazilian midfielder Coutinho will also sit out the match to be fresh for domestic duties.
“Saturday’s match (against Cadiz) is an important one for our progress in the league, and after tomorrow, there will be few opportunities to rest for anyone,” Koeman said.
“Messi is key for our attack, if the ball reaches him, there is movement, there is a lot of quality in his passes,” Koeman said.
At the beginning of the season, he struggled a bit more and this might not be a 30 goal season.
But he is working well, he is still a very important and decisive player in our attack.
Leo is a player who always wants to play”.
Barcelona’s second forward (St) Martin Braithwaite could be starting on Wednesday after scoring three times in his last two matches.
