Messi injury is rotten luck for Barcelona - Busquets
The central midfielder said he knew the Argentine was crocked in their defeat of Las Palmas on Saturday as he never complains
Sergio Busquets was left ruing Barcelona's "rotten luck" after Lionel Messi sustained a knee injury against Las Palmas.
Messi was withdrawn in the 10th minute with the club later revealing he has a tear in his internal collateral ligament.
The Argentine superstar is set to be sidelined for up to two months, which represents a significant blow to a Barca side who are second in the Liga table behind Villarreal.
Busquets told Canal Plus: "You know that if Messi complains, then something's wrong.
"He's the best player in the world, our best player. We're having some rotten luck with injuries, and not being able to register new players makes things worse."
Barcelona went on to win the game 2-1 in Messi's absence, with Luis Suarez's double securing the points.
