Lionel Messi suffered a tear in the internal collateral ligament of his left knee on Sept. 26 and has been sidelined ever since. La Liga's all-time goal scorer is expected to miss 7-8 weeks in all.
Messi needs rest to recover. This means he is spending a lot of time in bed wishing he could get back on the pitch.
Barcelona teammate Luis Suarez poked fun at Messi with a Disney present.
Messi throws some English into the caption, but the gift is not difficult for Americans to decipher. Suarez got Messi pajamas with "Grumpy" of the Seven Dwarfs. The Snow White character also says, "I HATE MORNINGS!" If anyone is worried about a grown man in Disney gear, Messi strategically places a stroller behind him to remind us he has two sons, 3-year-old Thiago and 1-month-old Mateo.
This picture also takes a step in proving Luis Suarez is not a savage biter, but a humane teammate with a sense of humor.
