Lionel Messi has revealed that he is not yet fully fit following his return from injury.
The four-time Ballon d'Or winner returned from a thigh injury and has hit something of a drought after failing to find the net in four games.
However, following Friday night's 1-0 win against Espanyol, he stated he is yet to reach his optimum fitness levels.
"Physically, I am not 100% yet, but with games under my belt I'm sure I'll get into my stride," Messi told AS. "Games against Espanyol are always difficult."
