Lionel Messi, the best player in the Copa del Rey final, once again demonstrated his more human side. Despite having been the star performer on the pitch and leading Barceloan to the trophy, he still found time for an injured team-mate after the game.

Messi left the ongoing celebrations to one side and instead took time to get close to his compatriot and friend Javier Mascherano, who was on crutches and couldn't move around with the other Barca players. Mascherano had been injured in the final and taken off on a stretcher after 10 mintues. 

The Barça star was interested in how Mascherano was doing and spent several minutes speaking with him as the rest of the players took photos with their families, the trophy and paraded around the pitch. It was a nice touch from Messi. 

Just a little detail from Leo Messi for Javier Mascherano, who in the next few hours will undergo further medical tests to find out the real extent of the injury that prevented him from finishing the game against Alaves.
