FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has named the three humiliating losses that made him want to leave the Catalan giants.
Messi's immediate future was finally confirmed on Friday after he confirmed to Goal he will be staying for another season, despite handing in a transfer request.
The Argentine insists he was ready to leave but did not want to go to court with the team of 'his life' and will remain at the club for another campaign.
However, the six-time Ballon d'Or claims the losses to AS Roma, Liverpool and Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League in the last three seasons played a big role in his desire to leave.

"I looked further afield and I want to compete at the highest level, win titles, compete in the Champions League," he told Goal.
"You can win or lose in it, because it is very difficult, but you have to compete.
“At least compete for it and let us not fall apart in Rome, Liverpool, Lisbon. All that led me to think about that decision that I wanted to carry out.”
