Inter Milan Send A Brilliant Message To Lionel Messi After He Suffers Fractured Arm
Inter Milan's Spanish account sent a classy message to Lionel Messi after he was ruled out of the Champions League clash at the Nou Camp on Wednesday.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner was forced off with a nasty arm injury just 17 minutes into the 4-1 win over Sevilla last night, with it later revealed by Barcelona that their talisman is facing around three weeks on the sidelines having suffered a "fracture of the radial bone in his right arm".
Messi could well miss both games against the Nerazzurri, whose chances of winning have been significantly boosted with the absence of the Barca skipper.

Sadly 15 minutes of Messi is all we're going to get. Looks like he's seriously damaged his arm...may be broken.

However, Inter believe it is a great shame that Messi might not feature against them and replied to Barcelona with a wonderful tweet.
Lamentamos tu lesión y no poder enfrentarte en los próximos días. Siempre es un honor jugar ante los mejores.#FuerzaLeo :muscle:

Messi had scored and assisted Philippe Coutinho before his night was cut short but new looks likely to miss El Clasico on Sunday.
It means that for the first time in 11 years, a Barcelona-Real Madrid fixture will not feature Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, now at Juventus of course.
The last game between the two sides where the two titans didn't play came in 2007 when Julio Baptista scored the winner for Los Blancos.
