"(Messi) amazes me because he is a one-off and is making history," the Uruguayan told beIN SPORTS.

"As a friend and teammate, (the Ballon d'Or) makes me happy and proud because it's a beautiful moment for him.

"(His comments) were misinterpreted. When someone wins a Ballon d'Or, they are happy but also nervous.

"Leo is a human being and gets nervous like the rest of us. He wanted to say he might have to contend with retiring in a couple of years.

"It was misunderstood, but I'm sure Leo Messi will continue for a long while yet."
