Messi claimed that the break may end up benefiting Barcelona but wants players to take all the necessary precautions when the game resumes.
"This break may end up benefiting us, but we are going to see if they can start the competitions and there we will leave doubts, because we will check the level that we have or can reach when we start,"
"Going back to training is a first step but we should not trust ourselves and we must continue taking all the necessary precautions and assume that we have to start playing the games when they arrive but behind closed doors." Messi said.
