Barca denies Lionel Messi-David Villa rift

Barcelona assistant coach Jordi Roura said rumors of a rift between Lionel Messi and David Villa were \”absurd\” after the pair combined to devastating effect in Sunday\’s 3-1 win over Rayo Vallecano.

Rayo could not handle the partnership at the Nou Camp with all three goals coming from the pair, Villa opening the scoring and Messi scoring twice before Raul Tamudo grabbed a consolation.

The win helped Barcelona restore its three-point lead over Real Madrid at the top of La Liga and Roura categorically dismissed reports of bad feeling between the two.

\”This issue of a conflict I have heard many times. It is absurd,\” said Roura, who is filling in for Tito Vilanova while Vilanova undergoes treatment for a saliva gland tumor in New York. \”Currently the relationship between the two is just like it was a few months ago. I mean, very good.\”

Villa has enjoyed a fruitful week, his goal Sunday coming days after he scored against AC Milan as Barcelona made an astonishing comeback to qualify for the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

\”I\’ve always said that David is a very important man for us. It\’s a great joy for us to see him score because he brings a lot to the team,\” said Roura.

\”Life is a lot easier when you have Lionel Messi. You have to enjoy it on a daily basis when you have the best player in the world on your team.\”

Despite Barca\’s apparently unassailable position at the top of the league, Roura refused to look too far ahead.

\”We are in a very good situation, but you cannot say anything. Every game is important and we are closer, but still there is nothing gained.

\”After the break we have to travel to Celta Vigo which will not be easy. Step by step.\”

The only downside for the Catalan club was a hamstring injury suffered by Adriano which will see him sidelined for four to six weeks.
