Messi steps up recovery regime

Lionel Messi's road to recovery took a step forward on Friday as he strolled onto the training pitch for the first time to work on his individual programme.

Now he has moved up a gear and moved outside along with a coach and worked away from the rest of the first-team squad as he battles to regain full fitness.

Two games

After he had completed his exercises on Friday he stayed out and watched the other players go through their warm-up exercises and ball games.

Medics predicted after the initial round of tests that Messi would miss two games for pep Guardiola's side and has already sat out the midweek encounter with Sporting Gijón.
