Messi returns after kidney stone treatment


BARCELONA: Lionel Messi returned to training with Barcelona on Thursday after receiving treatment for kidney stones which affected his participation in December’s Club World Cup.

The Argentine superstar had tests “to assess the development of kidney stones,” Barca reported. Messi missed Wednesday’s 1-1 Copa del Rey semi-final second-leg draw with Valencia, with the Catalan side prevailing 8-1 on aggregate.

The five-time World Player of the Year is due to start Sunday’s Liga clash with Celta Vigo at the Camp Nou where he needs only two goals to become the first player in the Spanish league to score 300 goals.
