What can I say about Lionel Messi that hasn't been said already? As a leader, Leo is an important part of the club, a symbol. As a teammate, Leo isn't just concerned with himself, he always tries to make the rest of us better.

It's our privilege to have him at Barcelona."

"

I would have liked for Cristiano Ronaldo to stay in La Liga, with Real Madrid.

I never imagined I could go on to win so many Ballon d’Ors. I believe Cristiano's presence just gave that extra impetus to our rivalry, to El Clasico, and to La Liga overall. Of course, Real Madrid will always be the party to miss him the most."

When we’re young and healthy we take a lot of things for granted. Only after all that I've been through I'm starting to pay more attention around me—I want to enjoy every single thing while I can.

So every time I enter the pitch now, I take it all in. The stadium, the atmosphere, the fans. I take it all in.”
