Madrid: FC Barcelona coach Tata Martino welcomed Leo Messi back to full fitness.

Messi has not played since picking up a hamstring injury in his side's win away to Betis Nov 10 last year, Xinhua reported Saturday.

Given the striker had suffered a series of muscle injuries during 2013 and seemed to have had his confidence affected by the run of bad luck, the club decided not to rush his comeback, which was completed in Argentina.

Messi returned to Barcelona this week.

Although Martino did not say whether or not Messi would take part in Sunday's home game against Elche, he made it clear he is content with the striker's recovery.

"I see him with a killer's look in his eyes," said the coach.
