Koeman: Messi has the last word on playing Supercopa de Espana

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi remains doubtful for the final of the Supercopa de Espana after he missed by injury the victory over Real Sociedad.

Lionel Messi will have the final say on whether he will play a role in the final Supercopa de Espana showdown with Athletic Bilbao on Sunday in Barcelona.

Because of what was described as “discomfort” the Argentine international missed the penalty shoot-out victory over Real Sociedad in the semi-finals on Wednesday.

“We will see. The player himself always has the last word,” Koeman said at his pre-match news conference when asked if Messi will play.

“We will wait until Sunday morning to see how his body reacts. We are hopeful he will be available tomorrow.”

“If you have the best players in your side, you always have a better chance of winning. We are talking about the number one player in the world.”

“With Leo, the team is stronger in terms of creativity and effectiveness, which we otherwise sometimes lack. We have a system in mind but it depends if Leo is involved or not.”
