Luis Suarez posts message to Lionel Messi after knee injury

Published 2 Comments

Luis Suarez has wished his Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi a speedy recovery after the Argentina international suffered a knee injury in the 2-1 win over Las Palmas on Saturday.

Barcelona have confirmed that Messi will be out for seven or eight weeks after suffering a tear to the ligament in his knee - a major blow for the reigning European champions ahead of key matches in both La Liga and the Champions League.

Provided all goes well with his recovery, though, Messi could be back in action just in time for the first Clasico of the season - which is scheduled for November 22.

After Messi was subbed off against Las Palmas on Saturday, it was Suarez who stepped up to the plate for Barcelona, scoring both goals to ensure all three points for Luis Enrique’s side.

Tweeting after the match, Suarez wrote: “3 points and I was able to help the team with goals. Be strong Leo, get better soon mi amigo!”

Messages from other Barcelona stars

Messi has also received support from other Barcelona teammates on social media, including Neymar, Ivan Rakitic and Jeremy Mathieu - and you can see the posts by scrolling down this page.

Neymar: “Great win! Head up ace, you´ll be back better and stronger”.

Rakitic: “3 points which help us get back on track. A shame about Leo's injury. Sending you lots of strength to come back soon!”

Mathieu: “Get better soon legend @leomessi I know you’ll be back stronger”.

Suarez and Neymar need to do the business

With Messi sidelined until November, the onus will fall on the likes of Suarez and Neymar, in particular, to inspire Barcelona over the next couple of months.

But life without Messi for two months could leave Barça playing catch-up in La Liga if his star teammates fail to do the business in his absence.

Will the injury to Lionel Messi prove catastrophic to Barcelona’s ambitions in both La Liga in the Champions League - or will they cope just fine without him? Have your say by leaving a comment in the box below!
