FC Barcelona star Leo Messi landed in the Catalan capital at 10pm on Wednesday night after travelling from Argentina. The forward returned after playing against Chile for his country in a World Cup qualifier, but then getting suspended for four games for insulting a linesman.
He missed the defeat by Bolivia and is very disappointed because of the ban FIFA imposed on him which will also see him miss clashes against Uruguay, Peru and Venezuela.
Barcelona will train on Friday at 11am and the Argentine will get back into the swing of normal life at the club, along with other team-mates who are returning from their own internationals.
Without doubt it will be an important moment with his team-mates likely to gather around him and support him at a painful moment.
