PLAYERS: Lionel Messi
Barcelona says forward Lionel Messi has returned to training with the rest of his teammates in his recovery from a right hamstring pull.

Messi is doubtful for Saturday's Spanish league game against Levante. Barcelona also says midfielder Sergio Busquets has recovered from injury and is training with the team, while backup goalkeeper Jose Pinto is having back pain.
