Lionel Messi is clear that his professional future is linked to Barcelona. And to Argentina, but no one else.
That's what he explained in an interview with TyC Sports: "I am not tempted to leave Barcelona. I won’t find anywhere better than this for me. It’s the best team in the world. Every year I am fighting to win everyone. I don’t need to go anywhere to prove anything."
In addition, the No.10 added that Barcelona "is the best city in the world, my kids are happy and have all their friends here. There’s no need for a change." In that sense, he said, "Barca and Argentina are my two loves."
Asked about Pep Guardiola in his growth as a player, the Argentine spoke about his unique ways of coaching. "Guardiola is one of the best coaches in the world," he said. "He makes you see things you don’t see on the pitch."
Another played to benefit from Guardiola's coaching is Messi's Argentina teammate Sergio Aguero, who plays under the former Barça boss at Manchester City.
"Agüero has grown a lot on a personal level with Pep," Messi said. "I see it when he plays. He’s another player now."
