Barca Will Not Rest 'Best In The World' Messi - Valverde

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde says that he won't rest 'the best in the world' Lionel Messi.
Barcelona have no plans to rest Lionel Messi despite his Argentina endeavours coming after the forward played in all 11 of his club's matches this season.

Ernesto Valverde, whose side have won seven straight matches to kick off their La Liga campaign in style, insists there is no immediate need to rest the man he believes is the world's best player, with Saturday's crucial away game against Atletico Madrid next on the agenda.
"Messi had his pre-season which was normal - sometimes the players come off World Cups and other tournaments," Valverde explained at his pre-match media conference.
"There are players who come late to the pre-season, but for him it was normal in that respect. 

"I think he is strong at the moment and we through it was important for him to help us early on this season. 

"We will look at it as the season goes on, but for now it is good idea for us that he keeps playing."
