Messi's season over

6:23 am on 16 May 2013

Lionel Messi's football season has come to a slightly premature end.

The great Argentine striker, who's scored 46 goals in the Spanish league this season, will miss the last couple of weeks of La Liga after suffering a thigh injury during Barcelona's 2-1 win at Atletico Madrid last weekend.

The end of Messi's season has been plagued by injuries, including a hamstring setback last month.
