Lionel Messi comes back to Barcelona after arm injury
Lionel Messi returned to training earlier than expected with Barcelona on Wednesday as the forward continues his recovery from an arm injury which kept him out of the team's wins against Inter Milan and Real Madrid last week.
The Argentine forward was set to miss three weeks after breaking a bone in his right arm on Oct. 20 during a match against Sevilla, but reports in Spain suggest Messi may be available for the first-team action quicker than forecast.
They beat Inter 2-0 at the Nou Camp without Messi last week to go top of Champions League Group B, before thrashing Real Madrid 5-1 on Sunday to go first in La Liga.
