I don't care if Messi comes to the pitch or goes to the beach

Celta striker Nolito says that his team needs to be "brave" and play "on equal terms" with Barcelona.
"The games have to be played. You never know what's going to happen. Celta aren't scared of any opposition, regardless of whether they are the best team in the world. We've got nothing to lose", he assured.
Nolito admitted that facing his former team will be "special, but there is no such thing as friends once you're on the pitch".
The Cadiz-born striker believes that his team are in with a chance if they can "play a good game and [Barça] have a bad day".
Nolito joked about whether Leo Messi will be fit to play: "I'll give his dad a ring in a minute. I guess he'll come, but he can spend the day at the beach as far as I'm concerned".
On Luis Enrique: "There was a spell when he had a rough time because people were giving him lots of stick and being unfair to him, but at the end of the day he's in the fight for the Copa del Rey, La Liga and the Champions League".
