Messi wants titles more than goals

Leo Messi insists titles interest him more than individual accolades.

The Barcelona forward, the world’s best player, has a string of individual honours to his name for his exploits over the years.

“I prefer to win titles with the team ahead of individual awards or scoring more goals than anyone else,” Messi told Spanish daily EL Pais.

“I am more worried about being a good person than being the best football player in the world. When all this is over, what are you left with?

“When I retire, I hope I am remembered for being a decent guy. I like to score goals but I also like to have friends among the people I have played with.”
