Mallorca vs Barcelona: Setien gives updates on Messi, Suarez fitness

Barcelona manager Quique Setien has said that both Lionel Messi and Luis Suárez will be available this weekend for their trip to Mallorca.

However, Setien admits that he will have to check his fitness with 11 games in the next six weeks.

Barça resumed title defense on Saturday after a forced three-month hiatus due to COVID-19.

Suarez thought he would lose the rest of the season after the knee lock surgery in August, but has now recovered in time for the game.

“After a five-month hiatus, he is training well, but he will need some time to get back to the best Luis Suarez,” Setien said at a press conference on Friday.

Messi returned to full training after losing three sessions last week with a thigh injury.

“He trained well. He is in perfect condition,” said Setien of Messi.

“Messi knows how to manage himself. If you feel a risk, you will be the first to say that you have to rest.”
