Messi aiming for more Barça success
David Saura (enviat especial)
Lionel Messi is keen to put Argentina's inability to win the World Cup behind him and help FC Barcelona to secure more trophies in the new season.
The Blaugrana star was main attraction as the squad landed in the South Korean capital Seoul after
he and Dani Alves returned from holiday in time to travel on the club's tour of Asia.
After helping Barça to win four trophies during the 2009/10 campaign
Messi hopes he can help the team maintain winning ways. "The objectives are the same every year,"
he said. "We want to win everything. We know that is difficult but we have a great squad to be able
to do it. Then we will see how things go."
Spain's success in the World Cup should help lift Barça too Messi believes. "There is no
added pressure and the world champions will return with an ever greater desire because they are
winners. We want to continue to win things."
World Cup memories
Asked to reflect on the World Cup Finals with Argentina this summer
Messi continued: "It did affect me a lot because I did not expect to lose against Germany. But that
is over and nothing more can be done. Looking back for too long would be a mistake."
Iniesta, Xavi and Cesc
Andrés Iniesta and Xavi could challenge Messi for the coveted Ballon
d'Or: "It would not bother me if they won it because they both deserve it," he said. On Cesc
Fàbregas' situation he commented: "It would be a pleasure to play again with Cesc. If he comes then
he would have no problem adapting."
