Messi played a key role as the Catalan giants clinched a 26th LaLiga crown after registering 36 goals and 13 assists.

However, Former Argentina star Mario Kempes believes his fellow countryman has become more selfish while Ronaldo is more of a team player.
 
"Messi is Messi and Messi is Barcelona. What you do or do not do is key. When Messi is on the field, prepare yourself, because you do not know at what moment he is going to mess you up," Kempes told AS.
 
“But Messi should not surprise us. We have seen him do everything, although I think he has slowed down a bit and now I see him wanting to do more things on his own.”'
 
“Before I saw him as a team player, now I see him more selfish in his actions. 
 
“It is the opposite of Cristiano, who now plays more for the team than for the 'me'. 
 
“I will tell you another thing, we Argentines criticise Messi because we are specialists in criticising what is ours. 
 
“If you ask me who I would have liked to play with, I would say that with Messi ... because I already played with [Diego] Maradona.”
