Valverde to Rest Barcelona`s Superstar

Valverde to Rest Barcelona`s Superstar

This season, on a couple of occasions, it has been noticeable that the superstar that is Lionel Messi has been sat on the bench.

For some that is an unfathomable decision.

However, it seems that there is method in Ernesto Valverde`s apparent madness, in fact it is something that the Barcelona faithful could see more of.

According to the Spanish news source, Marca, it is a ploy that Valverde intends to use to keep Messi fit for the crucial games.

Valverde sees a rest as being essential to boost the 30-year-old Argentine`s performance in crucial games.

With a Champions League fixture, against Chelsea, fast looming, and with Chelsea being a club he has never scored against, is there an inkling of a chance that Messi could be rested for the La Liga game this weekend, against Eibar (a).
