Barcelona coach Josep Guardiola has given Lionel Messi an extra four days off over the holidays; everyone else is due back in training December 29.

The only other player to get an extended break is Dani Alves, who will be back on the 31.

Lio will spend the holidays with his family in Rosario, and will be back in time for the Barcelona’s first match of the year against Osasuna.

They then face rivals Espanyol in La Liga five days later.

Take a look at these pictures of Messi’s nieces and nephews, hanging out with uncle Lio at the airport in Argentina.
