The former Barcelona man was recently asked if breaking Ronaldo’s record mattered to him. Talking to beIN Sport, he replied: No, not much at all. As I said before, at this stage of my career, I don’t dwell on it anymore. I focus on what I was able to achieve with Argentina and at club level, where I was lucky enough to win important titles such as the Champions League or Club World Cup, leagues, cups.
I was lucky enough to win everything, and that’s really what will remain at the end of my career. Sure, you have goals and records, but I think they’re secondary, other than that it’s a nice recognition, he added.
Messi also led Argentina to victory at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar last December. Argentina defeated France in the final, and Messi was named the tournament’s best player. Ahead of his MLS debut, he will be looking to recover from the mistreatment from PSG fans who bullied him during his last match for the club, and in the past as well.
