Lionel Messi has potentially spent his entire lifetime in Spain, being associated with F.C. Barcelona since childhood. The Argentinian has been awarded by the club tremendously is what has been a wonderful two-way association in nearly two decades. The current Barcelona captain has already won a huge number of titles with the club.

Those include nine La Liga championships, four UEFA Champions Leagues and six Copa del Rey titles. However, at 31 years of age, Leo Messi is nearing the twilight of his career. However, he is still Barcelona’s main man having displayed it with a huge hand in the goals that they hammered during Huesca’s 8-2 mauling last weekend.

Messi also spoke about the UEFA Champions League’s cruelty towards his club and assured to the fans that he will deliver at least one title before retiring. Messi also talked about Cristiano Ronaldo’s shocking departure for Juventus.

Messi added; “It’s time [to win it again]. We have been knocked out in the quarter-finals in the last three seasons. Last season’s result in Rome hurt especially, but we have a spectacular squad and we can fight for it [this season].”

Barcelona are in one of the toughest groups of the UEFA Champions League this season having been tied up with Tottenham Hotspur, PSV Eindhoven and Inter Milan. The Catalans lead the La Liga standings on goal difference after three wins on the trot.
