Messi: My Best Is Yet To Come

Lionel Messi said his best is yet to come, as he is looking forward to another big year in 2014 after scoring twice in his comeback from injury as Barcelona swept aside Getafe 4-0 in the first leg of their Copa del Rey last 16 tie on Wednesday.
The four-time FIFA Ballon d’Or winner made his first appearance since early November as a substitute just after the hour mark with Barça leading 2-0 thanks to a Cesc Fabregas double.
And it didn’t take long for the Argentine forward to make his mark as he slotted home from close range before registering his 16th goal of the season with a trademark solo run and finish in stoppage time.
“I had a lot of time out and I felt very good in the training sessions that I had, but playing in a competitive game in completely different”, he told Barça TV.
“More than the goals, I feel very good physically and I have been able to play without any pain so I am obviously very happy”.
After undergoing the first period of his recovery process in Barcelona, Messi travelled to Argentina to continue his recuperation in December.
There will be high expectations placed upon the 26-year-old over the next seven months as he spearheads Barça’s campaign to win trophies on three fronts before leading his country at the FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
