The Argentinian already is the footballer with more trophies in the history of the football and year to year follows breaking statistical and records. With 32 years, those that know him say that it still has three or four years more than football to the maximum level. But anybody knows him better that he same and in the speech that did to appreciate the prize left to fall that no longer it sees so young as always.

"I am conscious of the age that have and these moments enjoy a lot of more because it goes approaching the moment of the withdrawal and is difficult, repeat, although they remain me years more. It seems that the time flies and raisin all very fast", went the words that said the one of Rosario. The barcelonismo remained something concerned after this, although later the '10' went out to the step and reassured to all the world leaving clear that it is very happy in the Barça.

"What seat I by this club goes further of any signature, agreement or paper"

"Reassure to the people of the Barça because I can go me to final of season? The people knows me and knows that there are not problems with this subject. What seat I by this club goes further of any signature, of any agreement or of any paper", affirmed.

What the forward does not want to is to finish dragging in the Barça, as they have done other 'cracks' by not to know withdraw to time. In the Real Madrid, for example, two emblems like Raúl González and Iker Boxes did not go out well because they went down a lot his level in the last years. Messi does not want that this happen him to him. "It is a thing more than how go me feeling and want to be well while it was in the Barça", aimed.

It insists in that his withdrawal depends on his physicist

In spite of everything, the captain barcelonista insisted once again in that has an age, and that his withdrawal will depend on how seats physically season to season. "I expect to play a lot of years more, but go way of the 33 years and depends on how go me feeling physically. Today thank heaven I find me very well physically and better that never, to personal level and physicist", recognised.

"It had liked me win the Champions or the Glass America before that another individual prize"

Finally, the '10' admitted that the individual prizes do not mean so much for him like the communities and that it had preferred to win the Champions or the Glass America to the Balloon of Gold. "The individual prizes are not my aim, always said it, and repeat it, but are a very beautiful recognition by what mean. It is a joy by the mates that have. It had liked me win some Champions more, some Glass America, before that another individual prize", concluded.
