Barcelona, Oct 17 (IANS) Given the possible pressure on the injured Lionel Messi to join the Argentina team to play the next FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Brazil and Colombia, Barcelona head coach Luis Enrique has said that both the star striker’s club and the national football association, AFA, want him to recover “100 percent”.

“I want him to recover properly, just get back to 100 percent fitness. I am sure the Argentinian Football Association and Barcelona are primarily concerned with Messi being fit. I am sure (Argentina coach) Tata Martino wants him to fully recover,” Efe quoted Enrique as saying on Friday.

After the defeat and tie of Argentina against Ecuador and Paraguay, many voices have questioned whether Messi will be ready to play for his country in the future engagements planned for the second week of November.
