Rabat – Argentine forward Lionel Messi said that he wants to win major trophies with FC Barcelona this season, but admitted that he might leave the Camp Nou side in the near future.
Speaking to Argentine sports paper Ole, the four-time FIFA Ballon D’Or winner said that it’s not up to him to decide whether he would continue defending the colors of the Catalan giants in the long run.
“I have said it many times-if it were up to me, I would stay forever. But like I said just now, things don’t always turn out the way one wishes, especially in football, where things can change and so many things can happen,” the Argentine said.
Messi has suffered over the last year from a decline in his level on the pitch due to injuries, in addition to problems with the Spanish tax authorities.
The Argentine has always expressed his happiness to play in Barcelona and assured his fans many times that he would not leave Catalonia till the end of his professional career.
However, the 27-year-old told Ole that nothing is taken for granted and that things can change over time.
“Football has a lot of twists and turns. I always said that I’d like to stay there forever, but things don’t always work out as you want them to,” he added.
