Baku, October 15, AZERTAC
Barcelona star Lionel Messi is not having the best of times after injuring his knee against Las Palmas - and Luis Suarez has added insult to injury by buying him a Grumpy pyjama set, according to dailymail.
Messi had begun the season in impressive fashion, scoring six goals in 10 appearances for the La Liga giants, before sustaining the injury in the 2-1 win at the end of September.
However, the Argentina superstar has continued his recovery and regularly keeps his fans in the loop via his Instagram page.
And Messi has revealed the gift which team-mate Suarez bought him by posing for a picture in the green pyjama set.
The choice of character, from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, has left Messi puzzled as he faces a race to be fit in time for the crunch clash with bitter rivals Real Madrid on November 22.
Meanwhile, another Barcelona team-mate, Neymar, believes this year's Ballon d'Or is reserved for Messi.
'Leo is the favourite,' Neymar told Mundo Deportivo. 'This year, the Ballon d'Or is reserved for Messi, the best player in the world has already been named. For everything he's done, Leo deserves it,'
'I hope to grow playing alongside Messi. He's the best and an idol for me. And if I learn a lot then maybe one day I can win.
'Of course I want to be in the top three,that would be great for me.'
