Revealed : Messi's Christmas Treat

Have you ever wondered how top clubs treat their stars during the holidays? Wonder no more. FC Barcelona have shown what it means to show appreciation and Lionel Messi is on the receiving end due to his elclassico impact. 


He has been granted an extended rest over Christmas after helping Barcelona to open up a commanding lead at the top of La Liga. 
Barca signed off on 2017 with an emphatic 3-0 Clasico win over fierce rivals Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday. 

That result, together with defeats for Atletico Madrid and Valencia, means the Blaugrana are nine points clear of Diego Simeone's men going into the mid-season break.
"The FC Barcelona squad are now on their Christmas holidays," read a club statement. "The final whistle at the Bernabeu and the 3-0 victory over Real Madrid marked the beginning of the festive break for the players until their return to training on 30 December at 6.00pm CET.

However for Lionel Messi and fellow South Americans, the statement continues:
"Luis Surez, Leo Messi and Javier Mascherano all have the club's permission to rejoin the rest of their team-mates on in the New Year on 2 January."

It is hoped that such break will keep him fresh ahead of Barca's next match against Celta Vigo in the Copa del Rey on January 4 2018.
