Upon Lionel Messi’s and Neymar’s return to the FC Barcelona camp, the Argentine is said to be “built like a bull”, while the Brazilian is out of shape.
News from the camp is that Messi has looked incredibly fit in training since he returned to Barcelona a few days earlier than expected, while the same can’t be said for Neymar.
According to Marca, Luis Enrique and his assistants have described Messi as being “built like a bull,” while Neymar is reportedly far from ready for the new season.
The Spanish giants play in the Super Cup on August 11, and it’s believed that although Messi has missed most of pre-season – he will start the game.
Neymar, on the other hand, is likely to miss the start of Barcelona’s season, with reports from Spain suggesting that the Brazilian may have enjoyed his extended leave a bit too much.
Last season, the South American pair were crucial in Barcelona’s treble-winning campaign, with Messi finding the net 58 times, while Neymar was on the score-sheet 39 times.
