Messi: United not amongst favourites

Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has ruled out Manchester United as contenders to win this season's Champions League.

• Clubs set to discover European fate
• Live Champions League draw

Messi said he expected his Barcelona team, Spanish rivals Real Madrid or Carlo Ancelotti's Chelsea to lift the trophy in May. But Sir Alex Ferguson's Premier League leaders and 2007-08 European champions didn't get a mention.

"Ourselves, Madrid and Chelsea are the favourites for this year," the Barcelona forward is quoted as saying in The Sun. "Here, everyone knows their role and we complement each other. All of us make each other better. It's the greatness of this team."

Meanwhile, the Argentine star could miss Barcelona's next match, at home to Getafe on Saturday, and whether he makes the trip to the U.S. with the Argentine national team next week will depend on how well he recovers from a badly bruised knee.

"Messi suffered a bad knock on his right knee and his availability for Saturday's game will depend on his progress during the week," Barcelona said in a statement released on Monday by the club.
