No break for Messi

Barcelona playmaker Lionel Messi suffered ligament damage to his right ankle but no break after being injured in Sunday night's Primera Division game with Atletico Madrid.

Messi was stretchered off following a late challenge by Tomas Ujfalusi in the 2-1 win at the Vicente Calderon, an incident that saw the Atletico defender sent off.

Messi will undergo more tests on Monday determine the full extent of the injury but, according to the Barca website, the first examinations of the Argentinian's ankle showed just ligament damage.
