“I’m Not Interested In Being The Best In History” – Messi

Barcelona star, Lionel Messi has stated that he has no interest in being considered the best in football history.

Messi has edged his way up to measure up to great players in history, with many considering the forward to have reached that echelon.

The Argentine captain has won nine La Liga titles, four Champions League crowns, five Ballons d’Or and scored 552 goals for Barcelona in his career so far but insisted that he has never been driven by the pursuit for individual honours.

The Barca number 10, however, maintained that he never set out to secure individual accolades and plaudits.

“I’m not interested in being the best in history,”Messi told TyC Sports

“I have never suggested that; not being the first, or the second, third or fourth.

“Every time I start a season, I try to improve myself, win everything, leave everything every time I go out to the pitch, give the maximum for my teammates and for myself.

“It does not change anything to be the best in history.”

Messi added: “I always want to improve myself and I do not compete with anyone because I do not play to be the best in history but to improve myself year after year and to keep winning.”

Asked on what he still hopes to achieve, Messi responded: “Obviously winning the World Cup with the national team would be the best because nothing has been given to us.”

Recall that Messi has already helped Barca to win LaLiga title and Copa del Rey double this season, with his eyes now set on international honours with Argentina at 2018 World Cup in Russia.
