Lionel Messi is in Rosario, enjoying a well deserved Christmas break with his family. And he wished his followers and fans a very merry Christmas.
Anontela Rocuzzo, his wife, shared photographs of the family on Instagram - with kids Thiago, Mateo and Ciro. "We wish you a Christmas filled with light and love. Merry Christmas," was the caption.
Messi should return to work on Jan 2 with Luis Suarez and Arturo Vidal, who have extra time off as they are travelling back to South America.
The next game is on Sat Jan 4, against Espanyol in the derby.
