Messi not bothered about individual awards

Leo Messi has said he would prefer to win more with his team than to claim individual awards.

The Argentine great won his fourth successive Ballon D'Or this week in Zurich.

I would like to win more, he told France Football. But it is not an obsession. I just want to enjoy the present.

I have said repeatedly that there is no better feeling than winning a title with your teammates. Individual awards do not cause the same adrenaline in me."
