Afp
Thursday, January 09, 2014

Lionel Messi is set to return from a two-month injury layoff after being cleared by Barcelona team doctors and included in the squad for the Copa del Rey match against Getafe on Wednesday.

Messi hasn't played since tearing his left hamstring in November, his fourth leg injury last year.

He returned to training with Barcelona last week after recovering in Argentina.

Barcelona coach Gerardo Martino said on Tuesday that Messi "feels fine" but didn't reveal if the club's all-time leading scorer will start or stay on the bench.
