Ahead of their LaLiga clash on Sunday 25th August, Real Betis have posted a cheeky message on social media urging Lionel Messi not to make a hasty return from injury.
The Barcelona captain was back training with the team on Wednesday, and Betis responded to Barca’s tweet about their captain’s fitness with a message of their own. Messi bagged a hat-trick in a 4-1 win at the Benito Vilmarin, finishing off the scoring with a glorious chip from the edge of the box that even had the home fans applauding.
Betis replied to Barcelona's injury news on Messi with the caption, "Don't hurry, Leo. You don't have to force."
No tengas prisa, Leo 🐐✋ No hace falta que fuerces 😜 https://t.co/bQyEFwyZLY— Real Betis Balompié (@RealBetis) August 21, 2019
