Inter Milan crashed out of the Champions League on Tuesday after 17-year-old Ansu Fati became the youngest scorer in the competition's history by firing in a late victor to give Barcelona a 2-1 victory at San Siro.
Romelu Lukaku equalised with a low 25-yard strike but Fati's late victor consigned Inter to the Europa League.
Ansu Fati's goal destroyed Inter's faint hopes of a comeback that would have given them the chance of a place in the last 16 in the Champions League.
"Messi getting rest. Nothing more", Valverde said.
The 17-year-old Guinea-Bissau-born attacker picked up a Luis Suarez cross to fire home four minutes from time to become the youngest player to score in the Champions League.

But Neto impressed as he frustrated Antonio Conte's side and saved efforts from Cristiano Biraghi and Lautaro Martinez and a number of shots from Lukaku.
Fati, who has represented Spain at Under-21 level, had scored two La Liga goals for Barcelona this season and made two substitute appearances in the Champions League before this match at the San Siro.
Martinez thought he had found the breakthrough when he chested down a through ball and fired home, before being denied by the offside flag, and Inter again had a goal chalked off when Lukaku was in an offside position before Martinez prodded in from close range.
