Forget records, winning matters most for Lionel Messi

Buenos Aires:

FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi said in an interview published over the weekend that he did not care about records and only wanted to help his club and the Argentine national team win.


"My goal is not to break records, I want to win everything possible with my team every season, whether it's Barcelona or the national team," the four-time FIFA player of the year told the Buenos Aires daily Clarin.

The superstar said he needed to constantly improve "everything" he did on the field.

"We live trying to improve in every area of life and I am not the exception in soccer," Messi said.

FC Barcelona is not perfect and has things it can improve, but that is coach Tito Vilanova's job, Messi said.

FC Barcelona is led by Messi and several members of Spain's 2010 FIFA World Cup-winning squad, including defenseman Pique.

The soccer club has arguably been the world's best thus far this century, having won three of the past seven UEFA Champions League crowns. It also is the favorite to win this season's title.
