Spain international backs Barca and their Argentinian star to come good.
Lionel Messi has been defended by Andres Iniesta after Barcelona were eliminated from the Copa del Rey by Real Madrid at Camp Nou.
“Real Madrid will play the final of the Copa del Rey,” Iniesta said.
“From now on we need to focus on our own important matters. In the league, we have considerable advantage and in the Champions League, we need to correct the mistakes we made at the San Siro by trying to reverse the result here. Our mentality is not going to change because we were eliminated on Tuesday.
“We will do everything we can when we play against Milan. No doubt about that. It is a very difficult game. But even if it’s difficult to say, I would bet that we will win that game. That is the level of trust we must have.”
“This is about the whole team. Not about whether Leo (Lionel Messi) is better or worse. Obviously we need to score. We have scored a lot lately and no doubt Leo is a big help for us there.”
