Argentina captain Lionel Messi has revealed what he thinks is the secret to FC Barcelona's incredible success over the past decade.

The Catalan club has dominated world football over the past 10 years, winning the UEFA Champions four times since 2006 and also lifting numerous La Liga and Copa del Rey titles, among other silveware.

Speaking ahead of the Blaugrana's game against Manchester City on Tuesday, Messi, who is chasing a third successive league title this season, believes the unity in the dressing room is the key behind the club's recent success.

"We are a group and we work together to win. There is no egotism in anyone in this squad," Messi said, as quoted by The Sun.

"We always try to enjoy playing together and a goal also gives you confidence, so we always try to enjoy it together when we have a game under control."

The 29-year-old also had some kind words to say about fellow forward Neymar, with whom he shares a close friendship.

"Ney is also a person who is very close to us and who we admire a lot," Messi added.

"He has such a joyful character. We all get on very well together."
